Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings Throw A Holiday Soul Party In Their New "White Christmas" Video

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings have gifted the world with their new "White Christmas" video--a clip that sees the funky soul ensemble grooving amongst some wreaths as a film captures them at work. Yes, we know that it's pushing it to play Christmas music before Thanksgiving has passed, but no one is going to tell Miss Sharon what to do--if she's merry and bright, then everything's alright.

The clip's classy and understated in its holiday trappings, and is hopefully only the first of multiple clips we get from the group's new LP, It’s A Holiday Soul Party, which features both Christmas and Hanukkah tunes performed in the modern-classic Daptone soul style. Watch the group's video for "White Christmas" below, get yourself a copy of It’s A Holiday Soul Party either online via iTunes or on special red colored vinyl at the Daptone online shop. Sharon and the gang are on tour this December as well--check out their dates after the jump.
