Margo Price has drafted Sharon Van Etten, Lucius and former Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers guitarist Mike Campbell for her next album, Strays, which arrives Jan. 13 from Loma Vista Recordings. First single “Change of Heart” is out now.
Inspired by “a six-day, mushroom-filled trip” Price and her husband Jeremy Ivey took to South Carolina during the summer of 2020, Strays finds the artist “trying to find what my soul needs. I feel this urgency to keep moving, keep creating. You get stuck in the same patterns of thinking, the same loops of addiction. But there comes a point where you just have to say, ‘I’m going to be here, I’m going to enjoy it, and I’m not going to put so much stock into checking the boxes for everyone else.’ I feel more mature in the way that I write now. I’m on more than just a search for large crowds and accolades.”
Ahead of Strays, Price will release her memoir, Maybe We’ll Make It, on Oct. 4 through the University of Texas Press. The book “tells her story of loyalty, loss, grief and forgiveness, from moving to Nashville with $57, to losing one of her newborn twin boys, pawning her wedding ring and facing rejection by almost every record label in town, to eventually reclaiming her power and fighting for the opportunity to be herself in the music business.”
Price also hosts the Sonos Radio show Runaway Horses, which has featured interviews with Bob Weir and Emmylou Harris, among others.
Price will support Strays with tour dates that run from late November through next March. Tickets go on sale Friday (Sept. 23). For a full list of shows, click here.
