New Sharon Jones & DKs album
Via NPR, who say ""Retreat!" is the perfect marriage of singer, song and band. A lot has happened to Sharon Jones and Bushwick's brilliant professors of soul, the Dap-Kings, in the three years since they last recorded. They played the Apollo, the Hollywood Bowl, Sydney Opera House and SXSW. And they've just gotten stronger and stronger.
Give The People What They Want, their new album, is the product of those years of touring and then regrouping, writing and playing together. You can hear all that in this new single. This 11-piece big band recorded its fifth record at the Daptone House of Soul Studio. It's home and it's obviously where their heart is. The 10-song album will come out on Daptone Records on August 6."
