There’s a new Mavis Staples album coming out next week. On Election Day, even. It’s a live album – “Live: Hope at the Hideout.” And I’ve got a FREE MP3 to share.
Click here to stream “Waiting for My Child” on my Vox blog. To download it, follow this link to Spinner.com.
With a stripped-down band and a few back-up singers, Ms. Staples performed this concert in Chicago just four months ago.
The set list includes old spirituals and protest songs such as “Wade In the Water” and “Eyes On the Prize.” She did studio versions of some of these songs for her 2007 album “We’ll Never Turn Back.”
As a listening bonus, I’m streaming another cut from “Live: Hope at the Hideout.” Click here to hear “We Shall Not Be Moved.”
