We are very excited that the new single ‘Sail On’ from the late, great Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings has been added to the B-List on BBC Radio 6 Music.
| ‘Sail On’ is the new single from the late Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings taken from her final studio album, ‘Soul of a Woman’. The record is a true testament to the life and career of Daptone’s fearless leader and one of the world’s greatest performers.
| Previous radio support has come from 6 music presenters Shaun Keaveny, Huey Morgan, Iggy Pop, Lauren Laverne, Gideon Coe and Cerys Matthews plus support from BBC Radio 2’s Trevor Nelson, Liza Tarbuck and Craig Charles as well as additions on the Blues and Funk and Soul overnight Playlists.
|“Starting at age 40, Sharon Jones began to realize the dream of every kid who ever saw a mic and thought “One day…” She went on to forge a 20-year career of incomparable performances and influential recordings that’d be the envy of any artist out there. And in those final, difficult years, her dedication to her band and fans, her ineffable presence on stage, reminded me that there is still a beauty and grace in this world that even the specter of death cannot diminish.”
