"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. "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?"

News & Reviews

  • The Staves' debut album, Dead & Born & Grown, turns ten November 12, and to mark the occasion, Nonesuch Records will release the album on 180-gram recycled colored vinyl in the US December 2. This follows its UK release on October 15, the UK’s National Album Day, for which the band will be ambassadors. Produced with Glyn and Ethan Johns (The Beatles, The Rolling Stones), Dead & Born & Grown was met with great critical acclaim and set the Staveley-Taylor sisters on the way to becoming one of the UK’s most celebrated indie exports. The recycled vinyl is made from 100% PVC recycled material, using waste material and clippings from previous record pressings, resulting in a unique color combination for each LP.

  • The Staves have released their take on Kate Bush's "Cloudbusting," from her landmark 1985 album, Hounds of Love, and a digital EP featuring that and the five tracks in their Be Kind series of stripped down, alternative versions of songs from their 2021 album, Good Woman. The Be Kind EP includes "Cloudbusting," "Devotion," "Careful, Kid," "Failure," "Best Friend," and "Good Woman."
