Published Dec 11, 2013It was a tough year for Sharon Jones and her Dap-Kings, as the veteran soul singer was forced to delay the release of her upcoming album Give the People What They Want due to a cancer diagnosis. However, things are looking back up for Jones and her band, with the album set to arrive early next year and a full tour ready to go in support of it. Now, Jones and the Dap-Kings are getting all festive on us via the new video for yuletide original "Ain't No Chimneys in the Projects."
The animated clip was directed by Ryan Louie, featuring a wee one doing her best to spread some holiday cheer via some Christmas light action. However, things quickly turn on their head and spin out of control. See what we mean by watching the clip below.
While "Ain't No Chimneys in the Projects" comes from Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings 2011 effort Soul Time!, Give the People What They Want arrives January 14 via Daptone Records. See all the band's upcoming tour dates here.
