Although they have been keeping themselves mildly quiet these last few years, The Staves have now returned to share a brand new single.
The new track 'Nazareth' is their first piece of new material of 2020 so far, and follows on from their demo release 'Nothing's Gonna Happen', which arrived in December last year.
Speaking about their new offering, they said, "We recorded "Nazareth" in one take on a field recorder sat outside the studio in the summer of 2018. The sun was shining and the birds were singing. We tried recording it in the studio but just kept coming back to this version. It seemed to have the magic.
"The song was intended to be in the spirit of an Irish blessing or a kind of a prayer, asking to be kept safe - but it pretty quickly became a more personal and introspective lyric. Moments of glory quickly faded. Worrying, trying. How we mean everything and nothing at the same time. To everyone, to no-one."
