Margo Price has announced Live From the Other Side, a new EP out July 16 via Loma Vista Recordings. To preview the project, the country singer offered a Late Show with Stephen Colbert performance featuring a new version of “Hey Child” with Adia Victoria, Allison Russell, Kam Franklin, and Kyshona Armstrong.
Live From the Other Side will contain a cover of The Beatles’ “Help” (also featuring Victoria, Russell, Franklin, and Armstrong), a solo arrangement of “That’s How Rumors Get Started,” and “Hey Child.”
In a statement, Price waxed poetically on the year since she released the thrilling That’s How Rumors Get Started. “I hope it kept you warm during those cold, lonely nights,” she said about Rumors. “Some things changed for the better, some for the worse. I know I am stronger and wiser than before but there is also an innocence lost, a naivety that we will never have back.”
She added, “I would also like to dedicate this EP to a hero of all of ours — Ms. Tina Turner. Her work has had such a massive influence on me ever since I heard her story and watched her movie What’s Love Got To Do With It when I was just ten years old. Her strength, talent, and truth have inspired me endlessly and I loved performing her interpretation of ‘Help’ by The Beatles. I believe in the power to manifest your own destiny and I offer Tina’s Buddhist mantra to anyone who may need it: ‘Namu Myoho Renge Kyo’ means ‘I honor the Universal Mystical Law of Cause and Effect.’”
Price will be touring in support of Live From the Other Side and That’s How Rumors Get Started this summer and fall, including appearances at Newport Folk Festival and Willie Nelson’s Outlaw Music Festival Tour. She will also play multiple dates in support of Chris Stapleton, Tyler Childers, and Nathaniel Rateliff.
