Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings have a brand new song called "Little Boys with Shiny Toys" that just premiered on Billboard yesterday.

The song is a throwback to funky R&B with that modern touch that The Dap-Kings do so very well. It's part Motown and part Afro-beat funk. Jones' vocals soar, combining with the band and the backing vocals for a very satisfying listen.

Sharon Jones had a pretty phenomenal year in 2014, after a major cancer scare in 2013. Her latest album, Give the People What They Want, was released last January and featured some excellent songs including "Stranger To My Happiness" and "Retreat!" She also toured pretty extensively, and performed with really great energy.

Give the People What They Want is available on Amazon (Vinyl, CD, MP3) and iTunes. You can also stream it and read our review right here on Zumic.
