For this week's Song of the Week, NPR Music writer and editor Stephen Thompson brings Here & Now's Robin Young a track from Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings' new album, "Give The People What They Want."

"This song 'Retreat!' is all defiance and fury, and hearing it after everything Sharon Jones has been through in recent months makes it that much more thrilling. She hasn't been away for long, but it feels like a comeback," Thompson says.
