Jeremy Ivey teamed up with his musical and life partner Margo Price for the playful love song “All Kinds Of Blue.” The husband and wife duo released the song today via ANTI- along with a video featuring footage of the pair recording the tune.
“I wrote this very fast,” Ivey said in a press release. “As I remember I was sitting at the kitchen table and I was calling lines out to Margo in the other room. I was just trying to get a chuckle out of her. ‘You know how many times I’ve dreamt of you?’ … ‘No, how many?’ ‘5,200,562.’ It’s basically an ‘I love you’ song.”
The art for the single and photo above finds Jeremy sporting a black eye he got while playing basketball. “He had the shiner during the recording too and I couldn’t keep a straight face while we were singing because he was so pitiful and beat up looking,” Price noted. “It was perfect actually.”
Margo revealed the late John Prine loved the song and discussed Jeremy playing the tune for him. “That was a really special moment to witness because I know Jeremy’s songs are quirky but I think that’s what makes them brilliant,” Price added. “I know John would like it because it’s colorful, detailed and funny and has that certain thing you can’t pin down. When Jeremy sang the ‘if Jesus Christ were here today he’d probably get a face tattoo’ line, John lit up like a Christmas tree and let out an audible chuckle.”
