Watch Mavis Staples' "I Like The Things About Me" Video

The second track released from Mavis Staples’ new record, One True Vine, now has a music video.

The video/slideshow, shows pictures and clips from the studio during the recording of the track, “I Like The Things About Me.” A notable appearance is producer and Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy. This is the second time Staples and Tweedy have paired up for a record, following 2010’s You Are Not Alone.

The song shows off the usual powerful vocals from Staples, a simple bassline and a heavy, grungy guitar riff throughout the song.

Staples is playing an album release concert June 26 in Los Angeles, Calif., at the The Fonda Theatre. One True Vine comes out June 25. You can pre-order it on iTunes here.
