Margo Price Shares ‘Letting Me Down’ Single Featuring Sturgill Simpson
Margo Price shared a video for her new single, “Letting Me Down,” which features backing vocals by Sturgill Simpson. The song appears on Price’s upcoming new album, That’s How Rumors Get Started, that was co-produced by Simpson and will be released on July 10 on Loma Vista Recordings.
Price postponed the record’s original May release date due to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. Price and David Ferguson also co-produced the album, which was recorded in Los Angeles at EastWest Studios with a backing band comprised of guitarist Matt Sweeney, bassist Pino Palladino, keyboardist Benmont Tench and drummer James Gadson. The 10-track follow-up to 2017’s All American Made features the previously revealed “Stone Me,” “I’d Die For You” and “Twinkle Twinkle.”
Price issued the following statement regarding the delay of That’s How Rumors Get Started:
Take me back to the day I started trying to paint my masterpiece so I could warn myself of what was ahead. Time has rearranged, it has slowed down, it has manipulated things like it always does…the words to some of these songs have changed meaning, they now carry heavier weight.
I’ve seen the streets set ablaze, the sky set on fire. I’ve been manic, heartbroken for the world, heartbroken for the country, heartbroken from being heartbroken again and again.
This album is a postcard of a landscape of a moment in time. It’s not political but maybe it will provide an escape or relief to someone who needs it. Sending love to everyone out there and hope I see you down the highway.
Directed by Kimberly Stuckwisch, the “Letting Me Down” video features Margo at her home in Nashville and dancing at an abandoned hospital with choreography provided by her sister Kylie Price. Watch below:
