This time last year, Margo Price released the great That’s How Rumors Get Started. So, what better way to celebrate the year anniversary of her album than to release a new EP? That’s exactly what the singer-songwriter is planning on doing.
Titled Live From the Other Side, the collection is out next Friday, July 16. It will include a new version of “Hey Child,” which features guest vocalists Adia Victoria, Allison Russell, Kam Franklin and Kyshona Armstrong. Price and company performed the new version (in a prerecorded fashion) on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, which you can watch below.
In addition to “Hey Child,” other songs on the EP include a cover the Beatles’ “Help,” which also features the four vocalists and a solo version of “That’s How Rumors Get Started.” Of the EP, Price attributed its influence in a lengthy to Tina Turner.
So much has happened since I released That’s How Rumors Get Started into the world in 2020. I hope it kept you warm during those cold, lonely nights. 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. When I think of the carefree moments of the old days, I wish I had enjoyed it more but ignorance is bliss, isn’t it?!
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.’ Take it with you wherever you go and hope to see you down the highway.
