The Staves have released a new single.

The minamalist Nazareth leans towards an indie-folk soundscape, uniting mesmerising harmonies from the sister trio with a plaintive acoustic guitar melody. They said:

“We recorded Nazareth in one take on a field recorder sat outside the studio in the summer of 2018. The sun was shining and the birds were singing. We tried recording it in the studio but just kept coming back to this version. It seemed to have the magic. 

“The song was intended to be in the spirit of an Irish blessing or a kind of a prayer, asking to be kept safe - but it pretty quickly became a more personal and introspective lyric. Moments of glory quickly faded. Worrying, trying. How we mean everything and nothing at the same time. To everyone, to no one."

The British group's last album was 2017's 'The Way Is Read', though they released a live EP, 'Pine Hollow', in 2018.
