Description
She won her first Grammy in 2011 at the age of 71, and gospel legend Mavis Staples shows no signs of slowing down. Following her successful One True Vine, overseeing the release of her late father Pops Staples's final recordings Don't Lose This, and appearing in the 2016 HBO documentary Mavis!, Staples is back with 12 new songs written for her by the likes of Neko Case, Ben Harper, and Nick Cave. "I've been making people cry all my life," she told her songwriters. "But now I want to reach them in a joyful way." The rousing lead single "High Note" certainly fits the bill, while the other standouts here include "Take Us Back," "Tomorrow," "History Now," "If it's a Light," and "MLK Song."

"It's an inspired set that frames Staples' emotionally raw, transcendentally intimate voice in mostly spare arrangements that cut to the heart. [Producer M.] Ward does a masterful job of simply turning Staples loose amid the positive vibrations of [Ben] Harper's 'Love and Trust,' Tune-Yards' 'Action' (which even starts with some surf guitar), Son Little's 'One Love' (not the Bob Marley song, but a new one that sounds like a Ben E. King tune), and Ward's own 'MLK Song,' a stark ballad featuring his acoustic guitar backing Staples as she talk-sings words of peace by her civil rights mentor. The album feels stunningly fresh and cutting edge; expect to see it on some Top Ten lists later this year."Boston Globe
