Margo Price Releases 4-Song EP 'Weakness' Via Third Man Records

Margo Price has released an EP of new music entitled WEAKNESS, via Third Man Records. Recorded at Sam Phillips Recording in Memphis, ‘Weakness’ was produced by Grammy-winner Matt Ross-Spang (Jason Isbell, Zac Brown), Alex Munoz, Jeremy Ivey, and Price herself. The collection features 4 new tracks including recent live show juggernaut “Paper Cowboy,” as well as the hard-drinking country-rock title track, which Zane Lowe premiered this afternoon on his Beats1 radio show. ‘Weakness’ is available everywhere now digitally, and will be available physically as two 2-song 45’s beginning tomorrow, July 28th.

Release Date: 27 July 2017

Label : Third Man Records LLC

4 Tracks/ Time: 15:42

The four new tracks are being released as a two-piece 7’’ bundle “EP” - a Third Man Records first.

Price has had a historic run following the release of her 2016 debut MIDWEST FARMER’S DAUGHTER (Third Man). Behind that album she performed on SNL, Fallon, Colbert, Seth Meyers, Conan, Charlie Rose, CBS This Morning, Austin City Limits, and more, collaborated with some of her heroes including Jack White, Willie Nelson, Loretta Lynn, and Kris Kristofferson. She won the Americana Music Association's 'Emerging Artist' Award, the American Music Prize, and was even given her own display at The Country Music Hall of Fame.

Terrific, succinct, and diverse, it's both joyous and completely cutting -- a signature that Price showcased all across her debut, Midwest Farmer's Daughter. It begins with the title track, "Weakness," a jangly modern honkytonk that would make Merle Haggard grin about the dichotomy that lives inside us all: "Sometimes I'm my only friend and my own worst enemy," she sings. Who out there can't relate to that feeling that no one can understand our deepest dreams, but our thoughts also breed our worst nightmares? - The Bluegrass Situation
Called Weakness, the EP collects four new songs that oscillate between barroom swagger and tender balladry. - Consequence Of Sound

Later this year Price will play dates with Willie Nelson, Chris Stapleton, Eric Church, John Prine, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill and others. Full tour routing below.
