ARTISTdirect has teamed up with The Gaslight Anthem and Walmart's awesome Soundcheck program to premiere this clip of the band talking about the song "Stray Paper" from Get Hurt, out August 19.
In the "Stray Paper" clip, the band talks about wanting a back-and-forth vocal, like the male-female interplay in The Rolling Stones' "Gimme Shelter!" They thought that The Dap-Kings' Sharon Jones, who survived a cancer battle last year, was the perfect choice to provide the female vocal they desired, and even though they were "certain" she had not heard of their band, they reached out to her anyway.
Jones agreed to do it! She recorded her vocal part remotely and took a vacation afterward! But let The Gaslight Anthem tell this incredibly story, as you watch the clip.
We couldn't think of a better way to send you into your Friday than with a little Gaslight Anthem exclusive content!
Oh, and watch their performance for Soundcheck here.
