Cyndi Lauper updated "Not My Father's Son" from "Kinky Boots"

Cyndi Lauper has created an updated, acoustic version of the song "Not My Father's Son."
 
The single originally appeared in the musical Kinky Boots. The new version features the vocal talents of both Billy Porter and Stark Sands, who appeared in the original Broadway production of the musical. 
 
“Now felt like the right time to do this,” Lauper revealed in a statement. “I wanted to tell the story of two totally different men, from different walks of life, that come together to realize that it’s our differences that should bring us together. That’s inspiring. And I think we could all use some of that these days… It’s also a great way to welcome Billy and Stark back to Broadway!”
 
Lauper directed the video, but chose to stay in the background musically (appearing on guitar).
 
“Exploring the pressure of growing up with a parent’s very narrow expectations, the song celebrates finding peace in your own skin,” she explained. “The video, shot in stark black and white on New York City streets, only leaps into color as the two men, who are on a physical as well as metaphorical journey, are reunited in their safe space.”
