Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings to Return with New Album
Singer Sharon Jones announced in June that she was diagnosed with stage-one bile duct cancer, thus forcing her to cancel the release of her new album and remaining tour dates. Now, following successful surgery and ongoing treatment, Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings will return in 2014 with a new album Give the People What They Want due out January 14. The band currently has one show scheduled so far, with Jones making her return to the stage on February 6 at Beacon Theater in New York City. This show will be Jones’ first performance in over a year.
