Euphoria's Sydney Sweeney is the unexpected star of The Rolling Stones' official music video for 'Angry', the first single from the British rock band's upcoming album Hackney Diamonds.

In the video, which is directed by Francois Rousselet, the actress is decked out in black leather as she rides down Sunset Boulevard in the back of a red convertible.

Archival footage of the band - which includes Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood - is also projected onto billboards while Sweeney mimes along to the 'Angry' lyrics.

The music video debuted on Wednesday (September 6) after the band attended a press conference to discuss their upcoming album with talk show host Jimmy Fallon.

Sweeney also made a surprise appearance and admitted that she "freaked out" after landing the job and immediately called her family (via ABC News).

"This is the biggest thing ever," she continued. "I didn't know it was going to be the first single but I love the song, it's stuck in my head."
