In conjunction with the release of Barbara Kopple’s documentary on Augusta-area native Sharon Jones, Daptone Records will release the official motion picture soundtrack for Miss Sharon Jones! on August 19th.
The album more or less acts as a handy “best of” collection for Jones and her devoted band, the Dap-Kings, compiling 15 choice tracks ranging from her early Daptone singles to songs from the ensemble’s 2014 LP Give the People What They Want. There’s also an exclusive new track, “I’m Still Here,” which can be heard here: https://soundcloud.com/daptone-records/sharon-jones-the-dap-kings-im-still-here
Miss Sharon Jones! opens in selected theaters on July 29th, and will play at Atlanta’s Landmark Midtown Art Cinema (931 Monroe Drive, NE) beginning Friday, August 26th. Watch the trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t7eNSgCQzCI&feature=youtu.be
