Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings have a Christmas album on the way.
Sharon will release their first holiday album, It's a Holiday Soul Party, on Daptone Records featuring a mix of traditional holiday songs and originals.
Jones talked with Billboard, telling them 'It's so great to put out a holiday record after almost twenty years, and it is thrilling to share a Hanukkah soul song. I was able to portray my gospel upbringing on the piano, and the Dap-Kings added their soulful flavor to old classics and a few original songs.'
The track list:
8 Days (Of Hanukkah)
Ain't No Chimneys in the Projects
Just Another Christmas Song
Please Come Home For Christmas
Funky Little Drummer Boy
World Of Love
God Rest Ye Merry Gents
In addition, the documentary Miss Sharon Jones! will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on Friday, September 11.
