Image Courtesy of The Family StoneThe Family Stone, the band consisting of three founding members of Sly and the Family Stone, has just released a new single titled “Do Yo Dance” that’s available for purchase as a digital download via iTunes. The song is the first new music to feature the Sly and the Family Stone band mates — saxophonist Jerry Martini, trumpet player Cynthia Robinson and drummer Greg Errico — in 45 years.

“Do Yo Dance” is a funky, celebratory tune driven by the Family Stone horn section and reminiscent some of the group’s classic songs recorded with original frontman Sly Stone. The Family Stone lineup includes new lead singer Phunne Stone, the daughter of Sly and Cynthia Robinson. Check out a clip of “Do Yo Dance” in a new promo video posted on YouTube.
