Daptone Records Shares Video for Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings’ "Searching For a New Day"

Sharon Jones’ final album with her longtime backing band The Dap-Kings, Soul of a Woman, was released this past fall, one year after the powerhouse vocalist passed away after a long battle with cancer, and her label Daptone Records continue to remember their late friend with another video for one of the album’s tracks, “Searching For a New Day.”

The video matches the hopeful tone of the song, showing a listening party for Soul of a Woman, splitting time between the footage of Jones doing her thing on stage and shot of gathered crowd at the party, in particular a young girl captivated by Jones’ powerful presence even on video.

The song eventually comes to a close, and the video ends with girl looking at the outside of Daptone’s Brooklyn residence. The camera cuts to her shoes, a sparkly silver that calls to memory Jones’ own shimmery onstage outfits, before her feet begin walking toward the recording studio’s building.
