Released 5th February
Good Woman, the first new album in six years from The Staves – sisters Emily, Jessica and Camilla Staveley-Taylor – was written and recorded in a time of tremendous turmoil and change for the band, between the ending of relationships, the death of their beloved mother, and the birth of Emily’s first child. Produced by John Congleton, the album is a testament to the strength of women; to sisters, mothers, and daughters; to love, loss, and change; and to trying to be a good woman.
The band explains: “When we think about making this album we think about moments and snapshots of all the different contexts we were in as it was made. Living in each other’s pockets and then living with oceans between us. We think of homesickness and family. Of being an outsider. Of endless notebooks and scraps of paper. We think of love. Big, big love. Our Mum. Our Dad. Our friends. And of loss. Death and birth. Womanhood, motherhood. Sisterhood. And coming home.”
