On May 8, rising country star Margo Price will release “That’s How Rumors Get Started,” an album of ten new songs produced by her friend and fellow country renegade Sturgill Simpson (and co-produced by Price and David Ferguson).
The album marks Price’s debut for Loma Vista Recordings.
Today, Margo has shared new single “Twinkle Twinkle,” with an accompanying video by director Matthew Siskin (Father John Misty, Beyoncé). According to the announcement, the song was “inspired by a candid, backstage conversation with Marty Stuart about the tough truths of touring.”
“Twinkle Twinkle” follows “Stone Me,” another track from That’s How Rumors Get Started which was released in January.
The album was recorded primarily in Los Angeles last year, while she was pregnant with daughter Ramona. “They’re both a creation process,” she says. “And I was being really good to my body and my mind during that time. I had a lot of clarity from sobriety.”
It also features an A-list class of musicians assembled by Simpson, including guitarist Matt Sweeney (Adele, Iggy Pop), bassist Pino Palladino (D’Angelo, The Who), drummer James Gadson (Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye), and keyboardist Benmont Tench (Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers).
Margo Price and her steady touring band – Kevin Black (bass), Jamie Davis (guitar), Micah Hulsher (keys), and Dillon Napier (drums) – will perform songs from “That’s How Rumors Get Started” at shows with Chris Stapleton and The Head & The Heart this spring and summer, in addition to festival appearances and more to be announced soon.
