Alabama Shakes: “Hold On” (Official Video)

They’ve come a very long way from playing local record shops, as now the Athens, Alabama group formerly called The Shakes are set to tour with Jack White (with whom they’ve recorded) and follow up a television debut with one of this year’s most anticipated debut LPs: Boys & Girls. In celebration of the record’s release next week, frontwoman Brittany Howard and the boys are spinning the 11-track set for free over on NPR.

Meanwhile, last fall’s performance at Stubb’s was one of the best live clips I’d seen yet of the band, but today brings an official clip for “Hold On” that just might take the cake. Check it out below.
