Alabama Shakes vocalist/guitarist Brittany Howard recently stopped by Los Angeles, CA’s KCRW studios, where she offered up a performance of “Stay High” for the Southern California public radio station’s ongoing video series.
“Stay High” appears on Howard’s recently released debut solo album, Jaime, which arrived on September 20th via ATO Records. Howard recorded Jaime with engineer Shawn Everett and was backed in the studio by Alabama Shakes bassist Zac Cockrell, keyboardist Robert Glasper, and drummer Nate Smith. The new album follows up Alabama Shakes’ 2015 album, Sound and Color, and Howards’ self-titled debut of her side project Thunderbitch, also from 2015.
In July, Howard released a “Stay High” video, which follows actor Terry Crews clocking out after what seems like another long day at work, only to make his way around town with his spirits growing thanks to the presence of everyone he comes across. The video was directed by Kim Gehrig and was shot on location in Howard’s hometown of Athens, AL. Most of the actors seen throughout the video are Howard’s family members.
