'Give the People What They Want' - Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings

I can't remember the last piece of news that made me this happy to report: Sharon Jones, who had to take some time off earlier this year for cancer treatment is now well, fit and healthy.  As excited as I am about the news that the band's new album is expected shortly, currently rescheduled for release in January 2014, it certainly comes second place to the news that she's ok as it was devasting to hear it when announced back in August. 

Tour plans have been announced in support of the album's release and I genuinelly implore anyone reading this, that's able to see them live, to not miss the opportunity as you'll be missing one of the leading performers that there is grace a stage (I really can't stress that enough!) 

Daptone have also released the album's tracklist, see below, and below that check the link for the animated video for 'Retreat':

Side One:
Stranger To My Happiness
We Get Along
You'll Be Lonely
Now I See

Side Two:
Making Up And Breaking U (And Making Up And Breaking Up Over Again)
Get Up And Get Out
Long Time, Wrong Time
People Don't Get What They Deserve
Slow Down, Love
