Wilco's Jeff Tweedy has collaborated with legendary singer Mavis Staples on a cover of John Fogerty's "Wrote A Song For Everyone", and you can watch them perform it below.

The team up took place at the Newport Folk Festival, and director Jessica Edwards managed to film it for her upcoming documentary Mavis!, which is set to debut at SXSW later this month.

Tweedy and Staples have worked together many times in recent years on various projects, including the former helping produce for the latter, both on her own material and unreleased material from her late father, Pops Staples.
