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.”
