News & Reviews

  • The Staves have released a live video for "Good Woman," the title track to their upcoming album, due February 5 on Nonesuch in the US. The video was made in London's Sunbeam Studios, directed by Olivia Eames. The Staves say: "We’d like to thank our amazing band, Glyn, Marcus, Chris and Rob, and all the crew involved for making this shoot possible whilst observing social distancing rules and keeping all of us super safe."

  • The Staves release their first new album in six years, Good Woman, February 5, 2021, on Nonesuch Records in the US. Good Woman was written and recorded in a time of tremendous turmoil and change for the band, between the ending of relationships, the death of their beloved mother, and the birth of Emily’s first child. Produced by John Congleton, the album is a testament to the Stavely-Taylors’ strength and that of other women; to sisters, mothers, and daughters; to love, loss, and change; and to trying to be a good woman.

  • 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?"
