The Staves are excited to announce their new album All Now, produced by John Congleton (Sharon Van Etten, Angel Olsen), to be released on 22nd March 2024. Today’s announcement follows the recent release of ‘You Held It All’, the band’s first release on Communion Records and their first recording without the duo’s sister, Emily Staveley-Taylor, who wasn’t present for touring on the last run, stepping back from the road with the birth of her first baby (and has recently had a second child too).
Accompanying today’s release is the album title-track, a majestic, pulsating beast that leans into the sense of self-rediscovery that weaves throughout the album itself, a distillation of the cacophony of our modern society, understanding the overwhelming nature of just trying to get through it all, but accepting it and not shying away.
Jess and Camilla have to say about “All Now” –
“It’s a stream of consciousness about frustration and feeling overwhelmed with modernity. Kind of a rejection of the performative way we have to express ourselves now in order for it to be deemed valid.”
Discussing the visual for “All Now”, directed by James Arden, the band add -
“We were in love with the old footage of singer songwriters performing in shows like “The Old Grey Whistle Test”, and the way the audience hung on the singer’s every word.
We wanted to play with the idea of “All Now” being an ideology and a message. Something that came from artists and creatives, but is then hijacked and commodified by corporate creeps, preaching the message to gain power.”
