Margo Price’s psychedelic journey to the desert continues in the new video for ‘Change of Heart’. This is the second single from her forthcoming ten-song album ‘Strays’. Solid electric guitars ring out as white-hatted line dancers circle around the singer. Her alter ego, clad in black, wrestles against her in front of distant mesas. While the images in the video directed by Courtney Hoffman may be trippy, this is a straightforward song that rocks like the best of Tom Petty’s classics. The inclusion of Heartbreaker Mike Campbell on backing vocals is a clear sign this is intentional.
Price brings her real-life experiences to her art, “I feel this urgency to keep moving, keep creating,” says Margo Price. “You get stuck in the same patterns of thinking, the same loops of addiction. But there comes a point where you just have to say, ‘I’m going to be here, I’m going to enjoy it, and I’m not going to put so much stock into checking the boxes for everyone else.’ I feel more mature in the way that I write now, I’m on more than just a search for large crowds and accolades. I’m trying to find what my soul needs.”
In a run of over 30 headline shows announced today, Margo Price will bring the music of ‘Strays’ across the US from late November through early March.
