“Out of Tears” was the second single released from Voodoo Lounge, following “Love Is Strong.” It only reached No. 60 on the Billboard Hot 100, although it rose to No. 14 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock chart and No. 36 on the U.K. singles tally.

The song features Mick Jagger on acoustic guitar, as well as lead vocals. Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood both played electric guitar on the track, with Wood delivering a slide-guitar solo.

Stones touring keyboardist Chuck Leavell played piano on the song, while founding Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers member Benmont Tench is featured on Hammond B-3 organ.

The “Out of Tears” video features mostly black-and-white animated images including a crying crescent moon, falling raindrops, and a solitary male figure depicted standing in the rain, tipping over an array of giant dominoes, and floating on his back in water.
