The Rolling Stones cancelled a show in Las Vegas on Tuesday thanks to Mick Jagger’s unfortunate bout of laryngitis, but that hasn’t stopped them from putting out a new song from their upcoming blues covers album Blue & Lonesome.

Chance The Rapper has shared a new video for Coloring Book track “How Great.” It’s optimized for mobile, so it kind of annoyingly requires you to lock your phone orientation on portrait mode to view it properly.
