Previously announced album and tour had been delayed due to the singer’s cancer treatment.

This past spring, Daptone Records had just announced the August release of Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings’ Give the People What They Want when Sharon Jones was diagnosed with cancer. The scheduled release and supporting tours were immediately put on hold and all efforts were quickly shifted to her treatment and recovery. It brings great joy and relief to announce that after a successful operation, ongoing treatment, and the continued support of friends, family, and fans, Sharon Jones is back.
Give the People What They Want is scheduled to drop January 14, followed by Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings’ return to the stage on February 6th at the Beacon Theater in New York City, their first show in nearly a year. Check out the video for “Retreat!” to start getting prepped…
