"This Place Is Empty" is a song from The Rolling Stones' 2005 album "A Bigger Bang". It is the first of two songs on the album sung by Keith Richards.

In promotional video on the Rolling Stones official website, Richards stated the song started one eveing in his Connecticut home when his wife was out without him. He said he was sitting on a couch with the guitar and the song sparked. The final version is a bittersweet ballad where Richards pines for his familiar face.

It was formally recorded in Mick Jagger's estate in France. The song is notable for its clear piano opening and raspy vocal imprint. Largely an acoustic song, Richards performs guitar with Mick Jagger performing slide guitar. Richards also performs bass and piano for the recording. Jagger played drums on the original recording but Charlie Watts' drumming was later added.

The song was played on the 2005/2006 A Bigger Bang Tour set list; often being played alongside "Happy".
