Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings share video, ready new LP

Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings have shared the video for the single “Stranger to My Happiness” directed by Rob Hatch-Miller and Paloma Basu of Production Company Productions. The clip finds the band cast as the wedding band, captured at the end of the night having fun after everyone else has gone. The festive performance shows Sharon Jones strutting a look that clearly illustrates a side effect of her chemotherapy treatments. Miss Jones made a conscious decision that day, as she recalls: “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.”
Give the People What They Want is set for release on January 14 via Daptone Records. To support the album launch the band kicks off with a plethora of TV and radio appearances.
