News & Reviews

  • The Staves, currently on tour in the UK, have released a stripped down, alternate version of "Best Friend," a song from their new album, Good Woman; it is the second in their Be Kind series of special singles, following a new version of the album's title track. "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. The Staves will bring their tour to North America in early 2022. 

  • The Staves performed "Best Friend," from their new album, Good Woman, for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert's online series Play at Home. The video was filmed at Snap Studios in London. You can watch it here.
