Soul/gospel legend Mavis Staples recently completed work on ‘We’ll Never Turn Back, the most personal and polemical album of her career. Set for April 24 release, the album was produced by Ry Cooder, and marks Mavis’ debut for Anti- Records.

‘We’ll Never Turn Back’ combines raw, emotional, contemporized versions of some of the freedom songs that provided the soundtrack to the civil rights movement of the 1950s/60s, along with other traditional songs, and new originals written by Mavis and Ry.
