Preview: Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings ‘I Learned The Hard Way’

02/02/2010

Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings are undoubtedly one of soul music biggest ‘slept on’ groups. If I mention them to seemingly anyone here in the UK I get a strange look, quickly followed by ‘Who?’ Others, who are aware of them, often dismiss them as some kind of tribute act to the groups of the 60s and 70s (obviously they don’t own their 3 previous albums).

Well the first-lady of funk and her band are looking to change their relatively ‘unknown’ status with the release of their 4th album, I Learned The Hard Way, due for release on May 4th (Sharon’s birthday). Below you can take a listen to the title track, which I believe will be the first single released sometime in April.
