Keith here with my DJ pick of the week from the legendary Mavis Staples. “Change” is the lead single from Staples’ forthcoming record We Get By, written and produced by Ben Harper.
“These songs are delivering such a strong message,” Staples said in a statement about the LP. “We truly need to make a change if we want this world to be better.”
The album will be accompanied by a North American tour which includes a Ryman show May 15 celebrating Staples’ 80-year long career. Buy tickets here. We Get By is out May 10 via Anti-. Listen to “Change” below and let us know what you think!
