Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings – “Stranger To My Happiness” Video
Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings had to delay the release of their new album Give The People What They Want because Jones was going through cancer treatments, but the album is now set for release next week. The band’s last video, for “Retreat!,” was an animated affair, presumably because Jones herself was unavailable. But now she’s back in the new video for the gloriously old-school album cut “Stranger To My Happiness.” It’s mostly a live-performance video — always a good thing for this group, since Jones is always a total dynamo onstage. This time, though, it’s special, since we see her chemo-bald but totally unbroken, a total badass and an absolute role model. Rob Hatch-Miller and Puloma Basu directed the video, and it’s below.
