The Staves have shared a new piece of their forthcoming third album Good Woman. 'Satisfied' is the third single to be taken from the record and can be heard in recorded and live form now. 

Gentle and pastoral, 'Satisfied' starts slow and soon builds into a perfectly-harmonised cry, like hope escaping through the throat. Alongside their band in the video for the track, we see the sisters playing their instruments and conveying the emotion of the track with spine-tingling poise.

“This started out with an acoustic guitar. The song asking its subject - will they ever be satisfied with what they have? Is it ever enough? But also urging them not to give up on themselves, and love," the band said.

The Staves can be excused for the time it has taken them to make a new record: in the intervening years between If I Was and Good Woman, The Staves lost their mother and Emily had a baby. 

“It’s taken us a long time to get here" The Staves said in a press note, When we think about making this album we think about moments and snapshots of all the different contexts we were in as it was made...We think of love. Big, big love. Our Mum. Our Dad, Our friends. And of loss. Death and birth. Womanhood, motherhood. Sisterhood."

In August, the trio shared 'Nazareth', a track that will not appear on the record. September's 'Trying' and October's title track, however, will get a feature.
