Artist Info: In the year prior to her death from pancreatic cancer in 2016, Sharon Jones toured and performed tirelessly, and was also the subject of Miss Sharon Jones!, an acclaimed documentary by Oscar-Winning director Barbara Kopple. Yet somehow, the beloved and heroic soul singer found time to complete a studio album. Soul of a Woman features eleven songs which reveal that the emotion, dynamics, and drama of Jones' voice remained at full power until her final days.

“Matter of Time," the debut single from Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings' final studio album is an electrifying exhibition of the baddest band in the land at the pinnacle of their powers. Sharon, the siren riding high atop a fire-breathing dragon.
