Margo Price has officially released a new single called “Long Live the King,” which she’s been performing live for quite some time. The song pays tribute to Elvis Presley, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., John Lennon, and will be available through Price’s new mail-order record club.
“‘Long Live the King’ is a song about three extraordinary men who changed the course of history for the better,” Price said ina statement. “But no one is without flaw and they each had a duality in their personalities. This song is also about not idolizing celebrities or putting people up on a pedestal because we are all human and we all make mistakes.”
Price’s new singles club is called A Series of Rumors. Fans can sign up for exclusive B-Sides, covers, collaborations, and three monthly shipments. Members will also receive a limited edition, an autographed box of 7” vinyl records featuring the music of Price’s 2020 LP, That’s How Rumors Get Started, backed with exclusive B-sides, lost recordings, and more.
The first installment of A Series of Rumors features the tracks “Long Live the King,” “Hey Child,” “Twinkle Twinkle,” Price’s take on Bobbie Gentry’s “He Made a Woman Out of Me,” “Letting Me Down,” and “I’d Die For You.”
Aside from the single’s club, Price is getting back on the road. At the end of April, Railbird Festival announced its return to Kentucky in August for its second event, a two-day experience featuring Margo Price atop its line-up. She’ll be joining other notables like Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit, Midland, Dave Matthews Band, Sarah Jarosz, Tanya Tucker, and local heroes My Morning Jacket.
In March, Price offered up some new music, having a ton of fun covering some of her favorite artists. She presented a “Takeover Time” show for satellite broadcaster Sirius on which she played tracks by favorites such as Bonnie Raitt, Black Cat Bone, and Amythyst Kiah.
