The next song off Crow’s upcoming duets album Threads is “Live Wire,” featuring Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees Bonnie Raitt and Mavis Staples, and it’s coming this Friday.

Entertainment Weekly debuted an exclusive video of the three rehearsing the bluesy song live.

“Those two ladies may as well be sisters from a different mother,” Sheryl tells EW. “First of all, they’re very close and Mavis has inspired Bonnie in so many ways. And both those women have been a huge inspiration for me.”

Threads, featuring 17 tracks, will be released later this summer. In addition to “Live Wire” and the Cash duet — a reworking of Crow’s 1996 song “Redemption Day” — the album will feature collaborations with Don Henley, Stevie Nicks, Keith Richards and country stars Chris Stapleton and Maren Morris.
