Jeff Tweedy and Mavis Staples wrote this song, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and Kennedy Center Honoree Mavis Staples really nailed it live at The Union Chapel last year. It features on her new live album – ‘Live in London‘ – which is on ANTI, and hits the streets on the 8th of February. Mavis cuts to the chase and lays down the funky news “people are cryin’, bullets are flyin’, not time for tears…we got work to do“. There’s no despair – there’s just righteous anger and hope for a better world.
