SONG OF THE DAY Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings -Tear It Down

It’s bold, sassy and downright funky, but Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings’ Tear It Down is also so much more than just a superb song, for with it comes a strong political message.

Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings recorded Tear It Down during the Soul of a Woman sessions in 2016.  Always passionate about progressive political issues, Sharon was a vocal critic of Donald Trump’s plan to build a wall dividing two nations and wrote this song to raise both cash and awareness to the ongoing cause.

All proceeds from the sales of this song through the Daptone shop & Bandcamp were donated to the National Immigration Law Center, a policy education, legal training and litigation support resource for immigrants and all donations made from this song in the first 24 hours were matched by Daptone Records.  Purchase your copy of this great song from Daptone’s website here.
