Lee Fields his fantastic throwback soul album Faithful Man has been out for a while, but that doesn’t stop him from shooting a video while touring in the North of The Netherlands. The very atmospheric video uses a 16th century church on the outskirts of Groningen as the backdrop to great effect, which was “the most humbling and spiritual experience I have ever encountered, mr. Fields told Rolling Stone.

“I will never forget the scenic ride in that 1956 Oldsmobile while traveling to our destination, which looked like the same model car my dad had when I was a kid”

Mandatory watching for the day, Soul with a capital S.
