Mavis Staples 'Mavis Staples'
‘Mavis Staples’ is the sound of an artist figuring out who she was and what she had to say, even if she was already 20 years into her career. While Mavis didn’t write any of the songs here, she lived them; these are 11 songs charting different points on the arc of a failed relationship, from the first brushes of love, to the way it feels like a romantic partner has your love forever, to the breakup you never see coming, to wishing that things would go back to normal and they’d still be there when you get home to an empty house.

How we keep your records spinning.
Discover new music

Discover new music.

We spend our days digging for great albums. And once we’ve found that gem of a record, we do everything we can to help you appreciate the music. From gorgeous album art to world-class listening guides, you’ll find yourself discovering something new every time you listen.
Special editions

Score special-edition records (available nowhere else).

We’ve got a knack for crafting the most unique, definitive version of any album – old or new. Remastering and reissuing a lesser-known classic album with artist-authored liner notes? We do that. Collaborating with an emerging artist to release their music and tell their story? We do that too. Either way you cut it, we’re creating musical experiences that you won’t find anywhere else.
Special editions
Swaps

Swap it out.

With Swaps, you can exchange a featured record with one from the VMP Archive or from a collection of our store titles. Because after fine-tuning your taste over a lifetime, trusting someone else to curate your record collection can be scary. We get it, and we want to help you try new things without forcing a title on you that’s not a good fit.
No contracts or strings. You can cancel at any time.
