"This song is about balancing all the intricate parts and many faces of self and womanhood and the feelings of doubt that come from containing these multitudes," The Staves say of "I'll Never Leave You Alone," the new song from the upcoming album, All Now. "It’s about learning to navigate and live with them. To make friends with your doubt and with yourself." The Staves conclude their tour as special guests of Nickel Creek in Jacksonville tonight and begin their own US headline tour in Washington, DC, on April 7.

The Staves have released “I’ll Never Leave You Alone,” the third track from their upcoming album, All Now, due March 22. A lilting Americana-imbued croon, gently journeying along via the duo’s crystalline harmonies, the track follows the previously released singles “All Now” and “I Don’t Say It, But I Feel It.” You can hear it here:

"This song is about balancing all the intricate parts and many faces of self and womanhood and the feelings of doubt that come from containing these multitudes,” The Staves’ Jessica and Camilla Staveley-Taylor say. “It’s about learning to navigate and live with them. To make friends with your doubt and with yourself.”

The Staves conclude their tour as special guests of Nickel Creek at the Florida Theatre in Jacksonville tonight, then begin their own US headline tour—their first since 2017—in Washington, DC, on April 7, with shows in New York City, Cambridge, Toronto, Chicago, Minneapolis, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, and Los Angeles; details below. For all the latest, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

Produced by John Congleton (Sharon Van Etten, Angel Olsen), All Now, available to pre-order here, emerges from a period of chaos for the band that was followed by a period of enforced quiet. The Staves released their third album, Good Woman, in February 2021; it was an album of love and loss, written during a disconcerting period of turmoil and pain. “There was a delayed reaction to trauma and these big changes out of your control,” says Jess of the period that came after Good Woman, as the band—like the rest of us—were forced to sit with their thoughts.

The Staveley-Taylors were also still processing the death of their mother and other seismic changes: Emily took a backseat on this album (while still contributing vocals on a handful of tracks) to focus on motherhood, while Camilla reckoned with her own mental and physical health issues, including chronic pain and a series of operations due to endometriosis, which began to take an increasing toll.

Struggling after two years of deep solitude and pain following the release of Good Woman, The Staves did what they know how to do best: they got back to writing with the idea of going back to basics and focusing almost solely on each other and their guitars as a starting point.

It began with Jess, navigating this new landscape by harnessing her creativity on her own, at first in the studio in Hackney at the end of 2022, then slowly luring Camilla back to the next chapter of The Staves, before reaching out to Congleton, who the band had worked with on Good Woman.
