It was quite the year for Margo Price.

In 2019, she picked up a Best New Artist Grammy nomination, created her own strain of cannabis with Willie Nelson, and performed with Dolly Parton and Loretta Lynn. Nearly three years since her last release, Price also started working on her third studio album, That’s How Rumors Get Started (Loma Vista), out May 8.

Produced by Grammy winning artist Sturgill Simpson, That’s How Rumors Get Started, a follow up to 2017’s All American Made, which was ultimately dedicated to Tom Petty following his death later that year, moves through Price’s visceral Americana.

Collaborating on most of the tracks with her husband Jeremy Ivey, Price recorded in Los Angeles and laid down tracks while pregnant with her daughter Ramona. Simpson offered some backing vocals and assembled a band with guitarist Matt Sweeney (Adele, Iggy Pop), bassist Pino Palladino (D’Angelo, John Mayer), drummer James Gadson (Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye), and keyboardist Benmont Tench (Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers). 

Her first single in more than two years, soulful crooner “Stone Me” is melodically on the opposite end of the spectrum to “Twinkle Twinkle.” A retrospective look at youth, breaking into music, drugs, religion, and the highs and lows of stardom and life, “Twinkle Twinkle” is no celestial nursery rhyme as Price sings If it don’t break you, it may just make you rich / You might not get there / And all of the way, it’s a bitch.

The video, directed by Matthew Siskin (Beyoncé, Father John Misty), is set to a retro-collaged backdrop drifting in and out of footage from the past, including some early, grainy Price performances.
