Don’t Wanna Lose You / Don’t Give A Friend A Number

      Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Rendition Was In)

        THIS IS A BLACK FRIDAY RELEASE AVAILABLE ONLINE ONLY ON FRIDAY NOVEMBER 27TH FROM 6PM.

        Throughout their career, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings remained in high demand both publicly and privately to recreate and often re-imagine songs by other artists. More often than not, these covers were recorded by request – commissioned for placement in movies, television programs, tribute albums, or for samples. This album compiles some of their most popular as well as never-before-heard renditions.

        Though the band has mostly built their career on a prolific catalog of originals, these forays into other artists’ compositions lay bare their gift for arrangement and the unmatched studio prowess that earned them their reputation as The Baddest Band in the Land.

        Released on the anniversary of her passing, Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings' final studio album, Soul of a Woman is a lush, orchestral masterpiece. A true testament to the life and career of Daptone's fearless leader and one of the world's greatest performers.

        In the year prior to her death from pancreatic cancer in 2016, Sharon Jones toured and performed tirelessly, and was also the subject of Miss Sharon Jones!, an acclaimed documentary by Oscar-Winning director Barbara Kopple. Yet somehow, the beloved and heroic soul singer found time to complete a studio album. Soul of a Woman features eleven songs which reveal that the emotion, dynamics, and drama of Jones' voice remained at full power until her final days. The songs on Soul Of A Woman exemplify two distinct sides of the band’s sound. Side One showcases grittier, bluesier material like "Matter Of Time" and "Sail On!," giving Sharon the room to flex her vocal prowess and creating a "liveness" that few studio albums posses. Side Two takes on a more sophisticated orchestral mood. Tracks like "When I Saw Your Face" and "These Tears (No Longer For You),” capture a soft vulnerability in Sharon's vocals that draws you deep inside, and yet they remain nuanced with the signature toughness that never allow you to forget she's steering the ship. The finished product is an album that captures a band and a singer at their peak.

        Miss Sharon Jones! (OST)

          With overwhelmingly poignant timing, the celebratory and life affirming "Miss Sharon Jones! OST" arrives not a week after the unique artist's untimely passing. The film, directed by two-time Academy Award winner, Barbara Kopple, follows the dynamic front-woman through her 2013 battle with cancer and her triumphant return to the stage around the release of "Give The People What They Want". The soundtrack, featuring the exclusive "I'm Still Here" and a live recording of "His Eye On The Sparrow" in Sharon's local church in Georgia, boasts a nice selection of tracks ranging from her early singles on Daptone alongside tracks from the band's 2014 release - Give the People What They Want. Much like the film, the soundtrack gives you an intimate, candid look into the life of a woman who refused to be defined by the challenges she faced. Packed to the rafters with the full range of emotions, this set presents an artist at her peak and a fitting farewell to fans everywhere.

          Give The People What They Want

          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.

          Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings

          Soul Time!

            "Soul Time!" is an exploration of  the full range of Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings' dynamic sound through twelve songs handpicked by the Daptone Records gang, each one a precious exclusive.

            The needle drops on "Genuine Pts. 1 & 2", a supercharged funk arrangement that evokes the late Godfather not only with the spirited syncopation of the Dap-Kings rhythms, but also with the raw power of Jones’ voice. "Longer And Stronger", written for Jones' 50th birthday, is a deep mid-tempo soul celebration of the strength and determination with which Sharon Jones has earned her long overdue success. The theme of empowerment pushes on through “He Said I Can”, an energetic stomper belted over an arrangement reminiscent of the Isley Brothers early-70s heyday, and “I’m Not Gonna Cry” brings us back to the raw funk intensity of "Genuine" with a squealing tenor solo and a fiery vocal. .

            “What If We All Stopped Paying Taxes?” kicks the second side off with a bang. This mid-tempo groove is accentuated by the conga work of the legendary Johnny Griggs of JB’s fame. And who says Christmas can’t be soulful? Jones et al. make it so over their sought after holiday exclusive, “Ain’t No Chimneys in the Projects”. Next is an energetic romp into Motown intensity with “New Shoes”, a walking-out-the door belter that picks up where "These Boots Were Made For Walking" left off. The record winds up with a deep laid back cover of Shuggie Otis’ psychedelic soul jam “Inspiration Information”.

            From the first note to the last, "Soul Time!" confirms this band’s place at the head of the table as the world’s greatest funk and soul showband. Whether you’re a lifetime fan, or just getting turned on, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings’ have yet again made a record that will blow your mind. Get ready world, because It’s Soul Time!
