Margo Price filmed a performance of “Hey Child” featuring a choir of musical friends and current artists she admires — Allison Russell, Adia Victoria, Kam Franklin and Kyshona Armstrong — for The Late Show With Stephen Colbert’s #PlayAtHome video series. The video celebrates the one-year anniversary of Price’s That’s How Rumors Get Started album as does Live From The Other Side, a new EP due out via Loma Vista Recordings next Friday, July 16.
Price assembled with Russell, Victoria, Franklin and Armstrong in Nashville for the new take on “Hey Child,” a single originally released on That’s How Rumors Get Started. “As the group’s first time back in a musical environment since receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, the shoot for ‘Hey Child’ was free of fear and full of love, laughter and sheer, uninhibited singing,” noted a press release.
Live From The Other Side features the “Hey Child” performance unveiled today as well as a cover of The Beatles’ “Help” played with Adia, Allison, Kam and Kyshona and a solo rendition of “That’s How Rumors Get Started” from the Nashville session. The latest The JamBase Podcast episode contains an interview with Allison Russell.
Read a note from Margo Price about the anniversary of That’s How Rumors Get Started and how Tina Turner influenced Live From The Other Side:
“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.”
