Mavis Staples Your Good Fortune EP on Limited Edition 10" Vinyl
In conjunction with the new career documentary film Mavis! which premiered at 2015's SXSW Film, ANTI- is pleased to announce a unique collaboration between two generations of the label's artists. For the recording of the EP Your Good Fortune, gospel and soul legend Mavis Staples went into the studio with new ANTI- singer/songwriter/producer Son Little, recording two new Little original songs ("Your Good Fortune," "Fight") and two vivid reworkings of Staple Singers classics ("See That My Grave Is Kept Clean," "Wish I Had Answered"). To hear Mavis' clarion voice bedded in Little’s ancient/modern swirl of swamp guitar and b-boy programming is to discover the knife edge of her artistry. 2015 is the year of Mavis Staples, with her documentary, EP, and production of her father’s last testament Don’t Lose This all keeping her firmly in the public eye.
