The Staves are thrilled to reveal ‘You Held It All’, their first new music of the year, and their first since the release of 2021’s Good Woman LP.
‘You Held It All’ is also 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).
‘You Held It All’ was produced by John Congleton in LA. Congleton, who helmed production for Good Woman too, assisted in a much more live and spontaneous feel to the studio process, which Jess and Millie were keen to investigate.
The Staves on their new single: “’You Held It All’ is a song about understanding, and the knots we tie ourselves in when we don’t express our truth; and how much power and freedom there can be when we do.”
