Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings – “Retreat”


Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings lay it all on the table with their new single “Retreat” – the first track to emerge from their forthcoming LP Give The People What They Want, dropping in August on Daptone Records. Gilded with chiming bells and a combination of bass and guitar to comfort The Funk Brothers familiar, the track grows legs and plows forth like a charging rhinoceros on a rush of drums and baritone sax. Sharon Jones and the rest of the horn section come in blazing to shut the joint down with their infectious tale of the wrath of a woman scorned. What we have here is a monster of a cut. Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings present another amazing recording with “Retreat” – a point that bodes well for what’s to come on their pending 10-track LP. Check the track below. Pre-order Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings’ forthcoming LP Give The People What They Want via iTunes.
