Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings ready for more roadwork
Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings will return to the tour trail in the New Year to celebrate the impending drop of their long-awaited new album, "Give the People What They Want."
The 57-year-old blues singer and her band will begin the roadwork with a Feb. 6 performance at New York City's Beacon Theatre. The 33-city trek will hit clubs and theaters across the continent, finishing up April 15 in Detroit, MI.
The outfit is also slated to take part in the 87th annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, performing on a float for the nationally-televised tradition.
Earlier this year, Jones had to delay the album's original August release and cancel a North American run behind it after she received a diagnosis for stage-one bile duct cancer.
Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings will finally unleash "Give the People What They Want" Jan. 14 via their own Daptone Records. The forthcoming set, which follows 2011's "Soul Time!," is currently available for pre-order via iTunes.
"Without a doubt, this album is the greatest thing we've ever recorded and I've been anxious for the world to hear it," bassist and bandleader Bosco Mann said in a press release. "Everything will culminate in February at the Beacon."
