The Staves Return with New Song ‘Nazareth’

    Folk trio The Staves have returned with a new song called ‘Nazareth’. Listen to it below.

    “We recorded “Nazareth” in one take on a field recorder sat outside the studio in the summer of 2018,” the Stavely-Taylor sisters said in a statement. “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 .”

    They added: “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 noone.”

    It’s been five years since The Staves released their critically acclaimed album If I Was. In 2017, they followed it up with a collaborative LP with yMusic. According to a press release by their label, Nonesuch, the band are putting “finishing touches” on more music.
