On the eve of Rickie Lee Jones and Madeleine Peyroux embarking on a North American tour, let’s revisit a vintage video of Jones’ jazztastic, acoustic-guitar-driven hit single “Chuck E’s in Love,” from 1979. See the entire list of tour dates below.

The duo just released a politically charged video for a newly recorded cover of David Essex’s “Rock On.” The video involves a poignant (and sometimes hard to watch) series of clips focusing on women’s rights and a host of human rights issues. Watch below.

Regarding the video, Jones wrote in a statement: “Women fight for their rights, living, and rising in the dangerous world in which we live. This song is a tribute to US!”
