Sharon Jones Doing Well After Surgery

Sharon Jones says that she’s doing fine following a surgery to deal with a stage one tumor in her bile duct. Yesterday, the singer tweeted “Out of surgery, and I am feeling better than I ever expected. The nurses at the hospital are taking care of me and I am feeling so grateful.”

Jones and her band The Dap Kings were forced to cancel a few tour dates because of the operation. The group also postponed the release of their forthcoming album Give the People What They Want, which was supposed to come out on August 6. A new release date has not yet been announced, but you can check out their new song “Retreat!” here.
