Nothing's Gonna Happen (Demo)

Track Listing

News & Reviews

  • The Staves have released "Devotion," the fourth and final track to be shared ahead of the February 5 release of their new album, Good Woman. "Devotion" follows the previously released album tracks "Satisfied," "Trying," and "Good Woman." "This song came from a feeling of being totally at the mercy of someone else," the Staves say of the new track. "Being a passenger and never a driver in any situation. Being blinded by devotion and unable to navigate the way out."

  • The Staves have announced a live-streamed, ticketed event for February 5, the release date of their new album, Good Woman. The performance, filmed at the London venue Lafayette, will celebrate The Staves’ musical career, from their debut album to the new record, with a mix of intimate stripped back performances and songs with a full band. "Given the current lockdown restrictions we sadly had to cancel our Christmas show at short notice," says the band, "so we wanted to find a way to play live for everyone. We are beyond thrilled to be performing again and to bring something new to our fans."

  • 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?"
