Daptone Records Releases Claymation Video for Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings’ "Please Come Home for Christmas"

Before soul queen Sharon Jones passed away last month after a long battle with cancer, her label, Brooklyn’s Daptone Records, made a new music video for Jones & The Dap-Kings’ “Please Come Home For Christmas” from their seasonal album It’s A Holiday Soul Party, which was released last year. Today, the video has been released, and, as the Daptone release notes, “the song‘’s heartbreaking sentiment now feels more powerful.”

​The video, made in the claymation holiday style of films like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town, follows an elderly man as he sends a letter to his wife on Christmas. The two are separated for the holidays, and the man encounters several happy couples enjoying the season together before returning to his own home.

​Watch the touching video below.
