Grammy nominated singer-songwriter Margo Price has released “Stone Me,” her first new song in over two years, out now on Loma Vista Recordings. She performed the song last night on Full Frontal with Samantha Bee followed by with an interview, capping a special episode of the show with a bold proclamation:
"Love me, hate me Desecrate me Call me a bitch then call me baby You don’t know me You don’t own me Yeah that’s no way To stone me"
In her interview, Price says, “After what feels like an eternity, I’m releasing a new song into the wild today. It’s been hard to keep everything I’ve been working on for the last year to myself and I’m so excited to share it.”
“Stone Me” follows what was a busy 2019 for Margo. She started the year with a Best New Artist Grammy nomination, toured with Chris Stapleton, performed at concert tributes to Loretta Lynn, Mavis Staples, and Dolly Parton - the latter of which aired on the NBC special Dolly Parton: 50 Years at the Opry - and released her own cannabis strain via Willie’s Reserve. In December, Esquire, Billboard, and Pitchfork all named Margo’s last record, 2017’s All American Made, one of the top albums of the decade, with Esquire observing that “Price cemented her status as this generation’s Young or Nelson; a stark truth-teller of the finest degree.
Price co-wrote the song with singer-songwriter husband Jeremy Ivey who plays 12-string guitar on the song , Benmont Tench on piano, Matt Sweeney on electric guitar, Pino Palladino on bass, James Gadson on drums, Sam Bacco on percussion and Ashley Wilcoxson with background vocals.
