Mavis Staples Streams New Song 'High Note'
Staples said recently: "I told the writers I was looking for some joyful songs. I want to leave something to lift people up - I'm so busy making people cry. Not from sadness, but I'm always telling a part of history that brought us down. I'm trying to bring us back up."
Livin' On A High Note is released on February 19 via Anti- Records, while documentary film Mavis! will be broadcast on US network HBO on February 29. Stream the song here.
