Rolling Stone just posted the latest from the Sharon Jones camp following the news a few months back that she needed to postpone her album release to deal with cancer surgery (gah!). Turns out she’s recovering according to plan (thank god), and the band has let it be known that they’re coming back strong in 2014 with the album now set for January 14th release and a show at the Beacon in NYC the following month. They also put out a brand new video today called “Retreat”; #ironic much? Now that Jones has recovered from surgery, she and the Dap-Kings will release Give the People What They Want on January 14th, and will also make a triumphant return to the stage on February 6th at New York’s Beacon Theater – the band’s first show in almost a year. “Without a doubt, this album is the greatest thing we’ve ever recorded and I’ve been anxious for the world to hear it,” bassist and bandleader Bosco Mann said in a statement. “Everything will culminate in February at the Beacon.” Check this video out: It’s all great news to us here at LMB HQ; we’ll definitely be following her road back to health closely. We’d love to see her at Jazz Fest 2014 as healthy and happy as she ever was. New video! New release date! New show date in NYC! http://t.co/WB5zP9GAnF — Sharon Jones (@sharonjones) October 9, 2013

Back at the beginning of May we brought you "Retreat!," the hard-hitting first single from Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings sixth studio album Give The People What They Want. The LP was originally scheduled for an August release, but following Sharon's diagnosis with stage-one bile duct cancer, the album was put on hold indefinitely while she underwent treatment. Thankfully that treatment went well, and while she is still recovering they have rescheduled the album's release for January 2014 and have released a video for "Retreat!" in celebration. The animated visuals directed by Lizzi Akana see a feisty Sharon offering a stern warning to those who think they can get one over on her, all while surrounded by flying pigs and a band with clouds for heads. This one needs to be seen to be believed. Welcome back, Sharon!
