About this item

Sharon Jones is unstoppable. With four albums and a run of singles that have sold over half a million copies, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings continue to headline festivals and sell out shows across the globe

The band have created their strongest record yet. From the relentless stomping entrance of 'Retreat!', the bounce of the anthemic 'We Get Along', and the irresistible syncopations of 'Stranger to My Happiness', straight through to the intoxicating groove of 'Slow Down, Love'. It is also arguably the most impressive studio work to date from Grammy-winning engineer and Daptone co-owner Gabriel Roth (aka Bosco Mann) all written and recorded at Daptone’s analogue House Of Soul studio / headquarters in the heart of Bushwick, Brooklyn where Sharon herself wired the electrical outlets.
