22 October 2015, 17:43 | Written by Laurence Day

There's lots of new music from The Staves available, including a Bruce Springsteen cover and two new songs.

The new extended version of If I Was features live recordings of "No Me, No You, No More" and "Damn It All", as well as their cover of Bruce Springsteen's "I'm On Fire" (below), and two new tracks: "Train Tracks" and "Hopeless".

Find both new cuts, plus explanations about each from the band, after their version of The Boss.

Train Tracks:

"This was a real example for me of how the process of writing a song can heal you, or help you realise things. Therapy or something. It's a song about the futility of searching for meaning or direction in a particular romantic situation. Sometimes it's easy to sink when you think of all the things that could or might happen in the future. Being present is a hard thing to get the hang of."


"The first a cappella song we've written since the first album. We had the intro for years and decide to revisit it and extend it into a full song. It's a song about struggling and questioning it all really. Acapella is always a really nice thing to revisit from time to time and let our voices do all the work.

Check out the band's upcoming UK tour dates.
