Keith Richards clearly couldn’t get no satisfaction from the Fifth Avenue apartment he bought in 2014.

The Rolling Stones rocker and his wife Patti Hansen have relisted the four-bedroom, four-bathroom spread at 1 Fifth Avenue for $12.23 million almost exactly two years after buying it for $10.5 million, StreetEasy shows.

The Greenwich Village property is listed by Stan Ponte of Sotheby’s International Realty. Ponte didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

Richards, a notorious bad boy, certainly didn’t paint the pad black. The contemporary style apartment, which was renovated in 2011, is decorated in muted, neutral colors.

It has three setback terraces flanking the living, dining and entertainment spaces, a library and an open staircase with leather wrapped bronze handrails. It includes a Lutron lighting system, central air conditioning and a Sonos sound system.

The building, which dates back to 1929, was originally a hotel and is known for its Art-Deco detailing.
