The wait is over people! Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings long-awaited new full-length Give The People What They Want is now available
We know you’ve been patiently waiting all these months and now you will finally be able to play the band’s studio full-length on your turntable, iPod, or CD player.
Show us where you are buying GTPWTW by taking photos and using #WeWantSharon and we’ll share some of our favorite photos through Instagram and Facebook.
Thanks for all your support of Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings and Daptone Records this year and enjoy GTPWTW!
We are inching closer and closer to the release of Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings’ Give The People What They Want but we have two things to help you while you wait.
First things first, NPR Music is streaming the record in it’s entirety today. They had this to say about the album, “Set, as always, against The Dap-Kings’ characteristically springy horns, Jones growls and struts through 10 timeless songs that couldn’t sound better suited to the big stage. It’s to her credit that the studio serves them, too, throughout an album that deftly and efficiently carries out the mission suggested by its title. She wasn’t gone long, thank goodness, but it’s so nice to have her back.”
And if the stream wasn’t enough for you, we are exciting to announce that the brand new video for “Stranger to My Happiness” is premiering today at VEVO. Huge thanks to Rob Hatch-Miller and Puloma Basu at Production Company Productions for their great work on the video.
Enjoy both the stream and video premiere and don’t forget to pre-order Give The People What They Want from the Daptone Super Soul Super Store.

Did you pick up Charles Bradley’s Record Store Day Black Friday 45? Well, fear not if you didn’t (or celebrate if you did!) because you can stream CB’s cover of “Changes” on our Soundcloud and Youtube.
Victim of Love, the 65-year old Screaming Eagle of Soul’s triumphant second album–has received overwhelming praise since it’s release this spring, most recently being names to the “Best of” lists by SPIN, MOJO, Paste, BuzzFeed, Rough Trade& more. The album’s title track was also named to Rolling Stone’s “Best Songs of 2013.”
Charles will be celebrating his big year and celebrating the arrival of 2014 with a New Years Eve show at Pittsburgh, PA’s Highmark’s First Night. Get your tickets.
