Black Label Society Unveil Video for ‘Ain’t No Sunshine When She’s Gone’

Subscribe to Loudwire on

Black Label Society have unveiled the video for ‘Ain’t No Sunshine When She’s Gone,’ a cover of the classic Bill Withers song. It’s from the live CD ‘Unblackened,’ due out on Sept. 24. A live DVD, also called ‘Unblackened,’ but with a slightly different track listing, comes out the same day.

‘Ain’t No Sunshine When She’s Gone’ is a soulful, emotional song, and Zakk Wylde sings it that way. The video, however, is the complete opposite. It’s wacky and bizarre, with characters wearing various animal heads such as a horse, chicken and unicorn. Hellyeah drummer Vinnie Paul also makes a cameo, but in the video he’s playing guitar.

‘Unblackened’ was recorded earlier this year in Los Angeles, and features Black Label Society playing songs from throughout their career, including ‘Stillborn,’ ‘The Blessed Hellride’ and ‘Throwin’ It All Away.’ They feature more acoustic instruments during the concert, but Wylde showcases a few screaming solos, as well.

The double disc version of ‘Unblackened’ includes six bonus tracks not found on the DVD, including ‘Ain’t No Sunshine When She’s Gone’ and Leon Russell’s ‘Song For You.’ There are also acoustic versions of ‘Queen of Sorrow’ and ‘Won’t Find It Here’ in addition to the more electrified versions.
