“Stranger to My Happiness” Video Premiere, Stream ‘Give The People What They Want’

We are inching closer and closer to the release of Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings’ Give The People What They Want but we have two things to help you while you wait.

First things first, NPR Music is streaming the record in it’s entirety today. They had this to say about the album, “Set, as always, against The Dap-Kings’ characteristically springy horns, Jones growls and struts through 10 timeless songs that couldn’t sound better suited to the big stage. It’s to her credit that the studio serves them, too, throughout an album that deftly and efficiently carries out the mission suggested by its title. She wasn’t gone long, thank goodness, but it’s so nice to have her back.”

And if the stream wasn’t enough for you, we are exciting to announce that the brand new video for “Stranger to My Happiness” is premiering today at VEVO. Huge thanks to Rob Hatch-Miller and Puloma Basu at Production Company Productions for their great work on the video.

Enjoy both the stream and video premiere and don’t forget to pre-order Give The People What They Want from the Daptone Super Soul Super Store.
