Richards covered Love Overdue as part of a track from his 2015 album set for release mid December. The video of Love Overdue was released last Thursday. It features an animated Richards sleuthing around a city in search of someone whom he never finds.

"It's one of the many great songs he wrote that I've always wanted to do," Richards told Damian Fanelli from Guitarworld magazine . "So I indulged myself."

Richards added that he misses Isaacs who died in October 2010. The album entitled Crosseyed Heart will become the Rolling Stones guitarist's first solo effort in over 20 years.
