Stone Jack Jones Debuts Video for Patty Griffin Duet “Ships”


We’ve loved Stone Jack Jones’ creepy gothic Americana since he released his sophomore record Love & Torture this spring. Filled with eery laments and trance-like meditations on heaven and hell, the album is a dark roots record informed by Jones’ own brushes with death. After the mini crime-drama video for the first single “Circumstance,” which you can watch here, he has now released a footage-collage clip for the duet with country music legend Patty Griffin, “Ships.” The song features some unusual percussion, including child’s drums, a buddha box, and a lollipop drum, as well as Griffin’s ethereal voice. Click through to check out the video, which features clips of almost random film footage¬†projected on to Jones’ stone expression (maybe that’s where he got the nickname?).
