Mavis Staples will celebrate the release of her new Jeff Tweedy-produced album, 'One True Vine' (6/25, Anti-), with a June 26 concert at The Fonda in LA. Tickets go on sale Saturday via http://shorefi.re/YHAP5A. Complex is offering an exclusive preview of the album today with their premiere of "I Like The Things About Me," a Pops Staples track Mavis used to perform with the Staple Singers: http://shorefi.re/YH25B4

The follow-up to 2010's Grammy-winning 'You Are Not Alone,' 'One True Vine' finds Staples traversing darker terrain with stark, acoustic arrangements and the most honest, unvarnished vocal performances of her career. Featuring ten tracks—including new compositions written specifically for Staples by Tweedy and Nick Lowe along with covers ranging from Funkadelic to Low—the record is the most personal and emotional statement from the "American treasure" (Chicago Tribune) yet.
