Mavis Staples On That Time She Turned Down A Wedding Proposal From Bob Dylan

Only two days into this week and we’ve already gotten just as many new releases from the incomparable, Mavis Staples. Yesterday, the legendary soul singer released the Justin Vernon-written ballad, “Dedicated,” and today, she’s doubling down with yet another selection from her forthcoming Livin’ On A High Note LP, which pairs the graceful soar of Staples with songs written by some of the best and most eclectic in the game. This time she teams up with the eccentric and eclectic Merrill Garbus of tUnE-yArDs for the energetic new number, “Action.” You can hear the latest release from Mavis Staples below, just be sure to pre-order your copy of her new record on iTunes today ahead of its official release this Friday, February 19th via Anti.
