  • The Staves have released a stripped down, alternate version of "Devotion," a song from their 2021 album, Good Woman; it is the fifth in their Be Kind series of special singles. "We went into the studio with the wonderfully talented Marcus Hamblett (our bandmate and long-time collaborator) with the intention of revisiting some of the songs from Good Woman, to explore some of the more soft and tender parts that are there," the band says.

  • About This Album

    The English trio The Staves—Emily, Jessica, and Camilla Staveley-Taylor—released a new track, a demo recording of the song "Nothing's Gonna Happen," on December 6, 2019.

    "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," says the band. "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 song is called 'Nothing’s Gonna Happen.' Yes, 'gonna' sounds American doesn’t it? And we are not. But it flows the right way. And, well, what you gonna do?"
