In June, Sharon Jones was diagnosed with stage-one bile duct cancer, which forced her to postpone the release of her new album and all tour dates. Following a successful operation and ongoing treatment, the soul singer is now ready to return to music.
According to a press release, Jones’ new album, Give the People What They Want, will finally arrive January 14th. On February 6th, she’ll make her return to the stage at Beacon Theater in New York City, marking her first performance in over a year.
In anticipation, Jones has shared an animated video for the album’s lead single, “Retreat!”. Check it out below.
