Rhythm and blues legend Mavis Staples and Wilco rocker Jeff Tweedy may not have followed the same path musically, but the Chicagoans have come together for Staples' new album, "You Are Not Alone."
Tweedy produced the album, which will be released by Anti- records on September 14. Chicago's Loud Loop Press reports that it features "originals and cover songs from the likes of Randy Newman, Allen Toussaint and Credence Clearwater Revival." It also includes new versions of Staples Sisters tunes.
Loud Loop Press is streaming the title track here, and featured a great video of Staples and Tweedy singing CCR's "Wrote a Song for Everyone" today.
