News & Reviews

  • "We’ve spent the last couple years writing songs and recording demos in various places round the world, assembling the bones of what will be our next album," say The Staves, who have released a new demo track, "Nothing's Gonna Happen." "This song was written in a bedroom in east London and, later, recorded in a studio in Wisconsin. It’s been a while since we put new music out and we thought that seeing as this is the season of giving, we’d let one of these demos surface for anybody who is interested to hear ... We appreciate our wonderful fans so much and thought it would be a cool thing to show you a small sliver of the process."

  • The English trio The Staves offer their contribution to the holiday-song canon with the just-released new song, "Home Alone, Too," in which the festive-jumper-festooned sisters dare to ask: "Are you watching Home Alone, too?" You can listen to the song here via YouTube and on Spotify and Apple Music and download it on iTunes, Amazon, and the Nonesuch Store to add to your favorite holiday playlist.
