Tom Waits Surprise Guests With Mavis Staples For His First Live Performance In Two Years [Videos]

While Waits’ appearance onstage was a rare occurrence for the 67-year-old singer, Staples has been ramping up her productivity in recent months. Last week, she announced the pending release of a brand new album co-written with Jeff Tweedy of Wilco (out November 17th), and shared the album’s first single, “If All I Was Was Black,” for which Tweedy added the music to Staples’ lyrics. That same day, Mavis also announced a full Fall Tour with the great Bob Dylan. The 20+ date national tour will begin in Southern California on October 13th, and wrap up on November 16th in Boston.
