“I remember first jamming this with Jimmy and Keith in Ronnie’s basement studio,” said Mick Jagger in a press release. “It was a great session.” 

Keith Richards indicated in the release that “Scarlet” was practically an accident. “We weren’t actually cutting it as a track, it was basically for a demo, a demonstration, you know, just to get the feel of it, but it came out well, with a line up like that, you know, we better use it,‘’ Richards said. 

Both Jagger and Richards were set to perform on the band’s 15-date “No Filter” tour this summer, but were forced to postpone due to the coronavirus pandemic.
