It’s been three years since Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings’ I Learned the Hard Way, and in the interim, we’ve had the spectacular Charles Bradley to hold down that Daptone sound and distract us from Jones’ absence as she’s jetted around the world, impressing everyone with her dance moves.
On Aug. 6, Sharon Jones and her Dap Kings will return with Give the People What They Want, their fifth studio album, recorded in Bushwick’s Daptone House of Soul Studios. Featuring 10 new tracks, it promises lush arrangements and the “unbridled soul” the group has become known for.
Listen to “Retreat!”, the irresistible lead track from the record, here and check out the track list below.
