Watch Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings' Fantastic New Claymation Video, 'Please Come Home for Christmas'
As we close out a year that saw the passing of a list of musical greats, including Sharon Jones, the late soul singer is still spreading cheer this holiday season.
On Tuesday (Dec. 20), Daptone Records shared an adorable claymation video for Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings' "Please Come Home for Christmas," a Charles Brown cover that was on their 2015 album, It’s a Holiday Soul Party!
The video was planned and completed before Jones passed away Nov. 18, following a long battle with pancreatic cancer. It is the first Jones-related content to be released since her death.
Produced and directed by Alex Howard and David Hatter, the stop-motion video features clay versions of Jones and the group. It tells the story of a man trying to reunite with a loved one for the holidays.
Also coming soon: Miss Sharon Jones! will arrive Jan. 7 on Netflix. The Barbara Kopple-directed documentary chronicles Jones’ first battle with cancer.
