Mavis Staples Lines Up February Release For New Live Album

Monday, 05 November 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Mavis Staples has announced details of a new live album.

'Live In London' will arrive on February 8 through Anti-, marking her first concert recording since 2008’s ‘Hope at the Hideout’. The collection was captured over two nights at the Union Chapel and produced by Staples, who said:

“It’s kind of unbelievable to me that I’m still recording. I never thought I would still be singing at my age, and people seem to really want to hear me, they know me, they give me love—I'm just overwhelmed, really. I thank God every night before I go to bed and then again every morning for waking up.”

Staples' most recent LP, meanwhile, was 'If All I Was Was Black'. It arrived in November 2017 and marked the third time she had collaborated with Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy, who composed the record.
