Sharon Jones has cancer, postpones new album and tour

Sharon Jones is postponing the release of her upcoming record after being diagnosed with stage-one bile duct cancer. The singer has also scrapped a number of upcoming tour dates in order to have surgery, then rest and recuperate. In a statement, Jones said that, while she has a tumor on her bile duct, “We caught it really early and fast and the doctors say it’s operable and curable.”

Jones and her band, The Dap-Kings, had planned to drop Give The People What They Want Aug. 6 and haven’t yet set a new date for its release. The record is the group’s sixth.
