“Miracle Worker,” the first single from Mick Jagger’s band SuperHeavy, is set to have the world premiere of its music video on August 12, 2011. In celebration of the video’s premiere, SuperHeavy is inviting fans to watch the premiere online at Vevo on August 12 at 7 a.m. Eastern Time/4 a.m. Pacific Time. People who RSVP for the event on Facebook will get a chance to win autographed SuperHeavy merchandise that is signed by every member of the band.
As previously reported, SuperHeavy consists of Rolling Stones lead singer Jagger, Joss Stone, Eurythmics co-founder Dave Stewart, Damian Marley and Oscar-winning “Slumdog Millionaire” songwriter/composer A.R. Rahman.
The music video for “Miracle Worker” was filmed in Los Angeles on June 29, 2011. On August 10, 2011, SuperHeavy posted a teaser of the video on its official YouTube channel.
In addition, the Daily Mail published photo stills from the video, which features Jagger in a bright pink suit.
As previously reported, Stone described the “Miracle Worker” video In an interview with the Huffington Post:
“I like the video, it’s got this whole story that’s running through it. At the beginning, Damian and I have this conversation and our conversation is about a love that’s in a little bit of turmoil. It’s not a love lost, but it is kind of going through something. Then Mick, in the video — and also in the lyrics and the song — plays this character that’s kind of like the witch doctor that puts everything right and, I guess, is a little bit of a love therapist in a way. And then, in the chorus, we all come together, sing it, and everything gets fixed, of course, because that’s the only way that it could possibly happen.”
The reggae-styled “Miracle Worker” single, available in digital format only, went on sale in the United States and Canada on July 12, 2011. The single was initially released in other countries on July 7, 2011.
