Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings Take A Step Forward With ‘Retreat!’

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!
