Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings mark their return following Jones’ recent bout with cancer by dropping the official video for “Retreat” – the massive lead single from Give The People What They Want, which preceded the unexpected news of the singer’s health woes and the subsequent postponement of their highly-anticipated project. Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings are finally prepared to release the project with news of Jones’ recovery. Fans will be pleased to hear that Jones is indeed coming back blazing. She towers above the most menacing monsters and darkest forces in the video for “Retreat” – a clip that plays like an anthem for her recent battle and triumphant return. As if that weren’t enough, she and Daptone‘s finest will finally be able to release their LP to the masses on January 14th before officially regrouping onstage at the Beacon Theater in New York City on February 6th. Dap Kings bassist and bandleader Bosco Mann commented on the forthcoming project and the anticipation that has been building ahead of their return:
“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.”
