Watch: Alabama Shakes’ Brittany Howard drops Terry Crews-starring video for new track ‘Stay High’

'Jaime' is set for release on September 20

After releasing “History Repeats,” Alabama Shakes’ Brittany Howard has dropped a new hit single called “Stay High,” along with an accompanying music video starring Terry Crews.

The “Stay High” music video was shot in Howard’s home town, Athens, Alabama, and features her family and friends as the actors. The song and video were inspired by Howard’s father, who is very important to her and her family. The video beams with the culture and love found in a small town, as Crews does an amazing job at embracing the environment in the short film.

“Terry Crews plays a man who isn’t out to change the world, he plays a man who just wants to come home to those who understand and love him best,” Howard explains in a statement. “We see his inner beauty, grace and humanity in a place that is so often misunderstood.”
