Sharon Jones Returns With New Album, Video And NYC Show
Jones and her band’s Give the People What They Want album is now scheduled to drop January 14. Sharon & the Dap-Kings will make their triumphant return to the stage on February 6 at the Beacon Theater in New York City, marking the group’s first show in nearly a year.
“The entire Daptone Family is overjoyed and inspired to see Sharon’s recovery,” says the band’s bassist and bandleader Bosco Mann in a statement. “Without a doubt, this album is the greatest thing we’ve ever recorded and I’ve been anxious for the world to hear it. Everything will culminate in February at the Beacon. That moment when Sharon walks out to join us on stage again is going to be insane.”
