The golden-throated Sharon Jones returns with a new album with her Dap Kings on August 6. “Retreat,” the first of 10 new tracks on Give The People What They Want, is explosive, as NPR deftly puts it. It’s as strong as (if not better than) anything the singer and band have put out together – fans of both the singer and the band know this is definitely high praise, but we’re willing to bet they’ll agree after listening to “Retreat.”
