Seal has released a music video to promote his cover version of The Impressions' 1965 single 'People Get Ready' off newly-released LP 'Soul'.
A music video in support of Seal's new single "People Get Ready" has been debuted. Shot entirely in black and white scenes, it shows the soul singer enjoying his loneliness singing the song all alone with lamps put on trees around him illuminating the set.
"People Get Ready" is a 1965 gospel-influenced track written by Curtis Mayfield and originally recorded by The Impressions for their self-titled album. The song has been covered by many musicians including Phil Collins, Alicia Keys, Joss Stone, and many others.
The latest cover version of "People Get Ready" is performed by Seal for his sixth studio album called "Soul", which has hit the U.S. market on November 11. Produced by David Foster, the effort consists of at least eleven cover versions of soul music classics, including Sam Cooke's "A Change Is Gonna Come" and Al Green's "I'm Still in Love With You".
