Sharon Jones' final album released; Dap-Kings to perform on Jimmy Fallon in her honor


Almost exactly a year to the day of her death, Sharon Jones’ voice is being heard again.

“Soul of a Woman,” the final studio album from Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, is available today on Daptone Records.

The 11-track collection was recorded before Jones’ passing from pancreatic cancer and spotlights the ferocity and intensity of her voice leading to her final days.

To celebrate the Augusta-born Jones’ life and spirit, the Dap-Kings will perform a tribute to her tonight (Nov. 17) on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”
