Alabama Shakes' Brittany Howard Gets Terry Crews for "Stay High" Video
It comes from the Alabama Shakes singer's 'Jaime' solo album
Published Jul 16, 2019Alabama Shakes frontwoman Brittany Howard is going solo for her upcoming album Jaime, and she's just shared a video for LP cut "Stay High."
The video was shot in her hometown of Athens, AL, and it stars her friends and family members, as well as Brooklyn Nine-Nine actor Terry Crews.
Howard described Crews' character as "a man who just wants to come home to those who understand and love him best."
She said, "We see his inner beauty, grace and humanity in a place that is so often misunderstood."
Crews himself also had this to say:
I got an email from the Brittany Howard, asking me to be a part of a song she wrote that was all about her dad and how special he was to the family. And she poured her heart out in this letter. I couldn't believe it. Brittany was like, 'we can shoot it in L.A.,' and I said, 'No, I'm coming to you, we're going to Alabama. We're going to where you grew up, to where your family is.'

Jaime is due out September 20 through ATO Records.
