Give the People What They Want is the fifth studio album by American soul and funk band Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, released January 14, 2014 on Daptone Records. The album was nominated for "Best R&B Album" at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards. Give the People What They Want garnered generally positive reception from music critics.

For Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, 2013 was a year of unforeseen challenges and transformations.

The latest by retro-soul queen Sharon Jones opens on bass-drum thunder and orchestral chimes, like an Ennio Morricone fanfare for a lawman returned to settle scores. That’s appropriate for Jones, who’s been battling pancreatic cancer but sounds utterly unbowed. Retreat! is a funky warning to a cocky suitor, and Making Up and Breaking Up is all echo-chamber slow groove and girl-group backing vocals, sublime in period accuracy and in-the-moment passion

Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings Definitely Give The People What They Want. Ask an older generation of listeners and many would question the authenticity of modern R&B music. My more youthful, liberal side enjoys modern R&B – indulges if you will – even if it supplants substance with sex, drugs, etc. That said, my more refined, old soul yearns for true, legit soul, recalling the forefathers and veterans of the genre. With many of the veterans passed on or past their musical primes, the question becomes where does the ‘soul’ come from? The answer is from.

The more albums Sharon Jones releases with the Dap-Kings, the more formulaic their structure appears. This is the group's fifth and, like its predecessors, it draws up a list of vintage-soul styles and methodically ticks each box. Opener Retreat! is their strident, fire-cracking, Motown-heyday tune, Jones's voice scratchy with scorn. No matter how contrived the sound, however, there's no writing this troupe off as lazy pastiche: like Amy Winehouse's Back to Black – on which the Dap-Kings were backing band – Give the People What They Want breathes passionate new life into the past.

Her natural ebullience still drives the splendid Give the People What They Want, a hook-laden affair keeping up the high standard set by I Learned the Hard Way and 2011’s punchy Soul Time!, as good an R&B album as any in recent years. The bullish attitude is there right from the opening Retreat!, an assertive blend of Motown snap, Stax horns and Spector chimes in a retro-soul cocktail: Step back! she warns, I’ll make you wish you were never born, and you don’t doubt her candour.

Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings are back After a successful operation and ongoing treatment following a cancer diagnosis, Sharon Jones is back. She and The Dap-Kings have an album announcement and a video for the single "Retreat. Watch the video right here. Song Premiere: Sharon Jones' Explosive 'Retreat' Sharon Jones, whose new album, Give the People What They Want, comes out August 6, pours her heart out on a soulful new song, "Retreat

Even if the title of Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings' fifth album invokes one of the more state-of-the-art slices of 70s soul as delivered by the O'Jays, Give the People What They Want finds the group staying in their late 1960s lane. It's an album built less on advancement than resilience. The other story of note is the cameo Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings had in Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street: there they are, the singer and her group, standing onstage in the role of a wedding band playing James Bond supervillain torch song Goldfinger at the reception of a Caligula-minded stockbroker. A movie where a 21st century band plays 1960s music in a scene set in the early 90s-that's the context they found themselves in, and there are few better ways to show off just how unindebted to time they are.
