Over such a long time, iconic singer Mavis Staples has given music fans more than most artists. Still going strong and ready to give, Staples has released a new single “All In It Together (feat. Jeff Tweedy)” and in her giving nature, all proceeds of the sales from the song will go to charity. Benefiting Chicago’s MY BLOCK MY HOOD MY CITY, the charity is donating health supplies to Chicago area seniors during the COVID-19 outbreak.
The song showcases that Staples can still dig deep and deliver an amazing vocal performance. It also shows that Jeff Tweedy is a great vocal companion to Staples’ signature soulful timbre. With plenty of heft in her voice alone, the song has a mix of Chicago soul and rock swagger that works as well as you’d think.
The song can be streamed on all streaming sites or purchased digitally via Anti Records in all digital outlets. Purchases through Bandcamp will help MY BLOCK MY HOOD MY CITY and you can donate to the organization directly here.
