Show Info

Soul/gospel legend, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, and civil rights icon Mavis Staples will release her second collaboration with Wilco's Jeff Tweedy, One True Vine, June 25 via Anti-. The follow-up to 2010's Grammy-winning You Are Not Alone, One True Vine finds Staples traversing darker terrain with stark, acoustic arrangements and the most honest, unvarnished vocal performances of her career. Featuring ten tracks - including new compositions written specifically for Staples by Tweedy and Nick Lowe along with covers ranging from Funkadelic to Lowe - the record is the most personal and emotional statement from the "American treasure" (Chicago Tribune) yet. From the delta-inflected gospel sound Mavis Staples helped create in the 1950s, to the engaged protest of the civil rights era, and then, amazingly, on pop radio in the Stax era with a series of soul anthems, from “I’ll Take You There” to “Respect Yourself,” through all these Mavis carried on, her warm embrace of a voice the only constant.
