Gospel/R&B Legend Mavis Staples turns 80 years old in the summer of 2019 and her new album ‘We Get By’ proves that the singer-activist shows no signs of abandoning the edgy, socio-political messages that she champions. ‘Change’ is proof of this with a rocking, bluesy number, the stunning, introspective ‘We Get By’ is a mellow duet with the album’s producer Ben Harper, Mavis’ voice, aged, smoky and at times crackly with years is sublime on the sparse ballad ‘Never Needed Anyone’ while ‘Brothers And Sisters’ is an irresistibly chugging, funky groover. Every track is worthy of mention on this tour de force of bluesy gospel-soul but ‘One More Change’ bookends the album in serene style – a ponderous meditation on a life lived. Don’t miss the gorgeous, striped back glory of ‘Hard To Leave’. Stunning set.
