An inspirational new single, entitled We’re All in It Together, has just landed from soul legend Mavis Staples.

Produced by, and also featuring, Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, the song’s sentiment is perfect for our current times.

“The song speaks to what we’re going through now – everyone is in this together, whether you like it or not,” Staples explains. “It doesn’t matter how much money you have, what race or sex you are, where you live… it can still touch you. It’s hit so many people in our country and around the world in such a horrible way and I just hope this song can bring a little light to the darkness. We will get through this but we’re going to have to do it together. If this song is able to bring any happiness or relief to anyone out there in even the smallest way, I wanted to make sure that I helped to do that.”
