Mavis Staples
One True Vine

Mavis Staples - One True Vine

With new song offerings from Alan Sparhawk of Low, Nick Lowe, and three new Jeff Tweedy originals, One True Vine is at once a darker and more uplifting album than its Grammy-winning predecessor, You Are Not Alone.

Anchored by reinventions of two '70s classics - Funkadelic's 'Can You Get To That?' and the Staple Singer's 'I Like The Things About Me' - producer Jeff Tweedy and Staples have constructed a dense narrative that starts with the soul-searching of Sparhawk's 'One Holy Ghost' and Tweedy's 'Jesus Wept,' and then breaks wide open with Nick Lowe's soaring 'Far Celestial Shores.'
