SONG OF THE DAY Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings – I’m Still Here


miss-sharon-jonesThis summer sees the release of the documentary, ‘Miss Sharon Jones’ which,  directed by two-time Academy Award winner Barbara Kopple, follows the dynamic front-woman through her 2013 battle with cancer and and her triumphant return to the stage in 2014.

Accompanying the documentary comes a fantastic soundtrack featuring a selection of Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings classics ranging from her early singles on Daptone to tracks from her sixth studio album, ‘Give the People What They Want.’

Exclusive to this soundtrack comes the sensational soul song ‘I’m Still Here’ which is much, much more than just an upbeat soul track, this is a testament of determination, fight and the victory of life against overwhelming odds.  Listen above.

Miss Sharon Jones! Soundtrack releases this August but today’s song is available to buy now and can be found here.
