Margo Price has announced the release of a new live EP which comes out this Friday (16th July). ‘Live From the Other Side’ features three live performances, including a pair of collaborations with four collaborators: Adia Victoria, Allison Russell, the Suffers singer Kam Franklin, and Kyshona Armstrong. The five of them played the song ‘Hey Child’ from Price’s recent ‘That’s How Rumors Get Started’ album, on Stephen Colbert’s late-night show over the weekend. Price has said that she’s dedicating the EP, which includes video for each song, to 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,” Price said. “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.”
