Margo Price postpones album release, shares John Lennon “Nobody Told Me” cover
The COVID-19 pandemic has been shifting the release of some upcoming albums and the latest to befall that fate is Margo Price's Sturgill Simpson-produced That's How Rumors Get Started, which was supposed to be out May 8 but is now being released, hopefully, at some point this summer. Here's more from Margo:
Sometimes circumstances are beyond our control. I would say that's the case for folks everywhere in the world right now. Life is postponed until further notice. I would love nothing more than for everyone to hear my next album in its entirety but it's just not gonna be May 8th. More realistically, it's going to be this summer. Even the record plants have halted production of vinyl. I want to be able to play this album live and tour with my band all over the world and I know that time will come. In the meantime, I'm still going to release some singles and be making lots of music for y'all anyway that I possibly can. Until then, take care of yourselves, be good to each other and this weary planet... and watch what you say and who you trust, because we all know...
That's How Rumors Get Started 🔮
In the meantime, Margo has shared an acoustic cover of John Lennon's "Nobody Told Me" which she performs with her husband Jeremy Ivey -- you may recognize the setting from her recent NPR Tiny Desk at home show -- and the song seems very apropos for now. Strange days, indeed. Watch that below.
