Yeah, she made have been diagnosed with cancer. And yeah, she may have under went chemotherapy causing her to lose all her hair, slow down the release of her newest record and put a halt to her touring…but none of those speed bumps have seemed to put a stop to one of the hardest working bands in music; Sharon Jones and The Dap Kings just need to apply the brakes a little.  But now, the queen of modern soul is coming back full speed with the release of Give The People What They Want – out now of Daptone. Check out the opening track on the new record below and be sure to find a way to give the full length a spin; it’s as good as anything they’ve ever done.
