Mavis Staples streams High Note
Hear track from album featuring songs written for her by Nick Cave, Ben Harper, Valerie June and others
Mavis Staples has streamed her track High Note, taken from upcoming album Livin’ On A High Note.
It features songs written for her by Nick Cave, Ben Harper, Justin Vernon and others. High Note was composed by Valerie June.
Staples said recently: “I told the writers I was looking for some joyful songs. I want to leave something to lift people up – I’m so busy making people cry. Not from sadness, but I’m always telling a part of history that brought us down. I’m trying to bring us back up.”
Livin’ On A High Note is released on February 19 via Anti- Records, while documentary film Mavis! will be broadcast on US network HBO on February 29.
