Sharon Jones passed away last year of pancreatic cancer but before she lost her battle to this she created this album. The LP was recorded at Daptone’s House of Soul studio in Bushwick, N.Y. when Jones was between treatments. “When she was strongest, that’s when we’d go into the studio,” bass player and producer Bosco Mann said in a statement. “Sharon couldn’t phone it in, so we would only work when she was really feeling it.”
Jones released her previous studio album Give the People What They Want in 2014. Last year, her music was compiled in an accompanying soundtrack for the documentary Miss Sharon Jones!
