WATCH: Sharon Jones And The Dap Kings – ‘Stranger To My Happiness’
In celebration of the release of their new album, Give The People What They Want, Sharon Jones And The Dap Kings have released the swinging new video for the Detroit-flavoured soul stomper Stranger To My Happiness.
The release of the album, initially slated for an August 2013 drop, was re-scheduled following Sharon Jones’ cancer diagnosis last year. Now, after a successful operation, ongoing treatment and the support from friends, fans and family Ms. Jones and her Dap Kings are back in full swing.
The clip see the band playing at a wedding, lead by a positively regal Jones strutting a powerful look that illustrates a side of effect of her chemotherapy treatments. The bold look was a conscious one said Ms. Jones, “not wearing a wig and just being bald was an easy decision for me. I’ve always been me, and that’s not going to change now.”
