Singer-songwriter Margo Price and her husband Jeremy Ivey debuted a new song, “Someone Else’s Problem” during a performance for NPR‘s Tiny Desk video series. The duo recorded the performance from their Nashville, TN home, as they, and the rest of the country, remain adherent to social-distancing and self-quarantine guidelines amid the ongoing COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.

On day 13 of a self-quarantine with their two children, dog, and cat, Price and Ivey seemed ready to go as soon as the camera started rolling. Sitting in the attic with John Lennon and Yoko Ono-inspired signs that read “Stay Home” and “Save Lives”, the guitarists jumped into “Stone Me” after a brief introduction. Price released the single earlier this year ahead of her forthcoming, Sturgill Simpson-produced album, That’s How Rumors Get Started, due out May 8th via Loma Vista Recordings.
Before “Just Live Love”, Price remarked, “I remember the last time we did Tiny Desk it was actually the day after [Donald] Trump was elected into office and I didn’t think that things could get any worse, but here we are.” Ivey then interjected, “Things can always get worse,” to which Price agreed. Margo then displayed thankfulness for her health, clean air, and having a roof over her head before her husband counted them into the Weakness EP track.
Following “Just Live Love”, Price exclaimed,
We want to thank all the people still out there working, all the doctors, all the sanitation people, everybody out there just doing what they have to do so we can all survive. All the people working in grocery stores, and to everyone who has lost their job, we feel you. People in the service industry and small businesses, and especially all the folks in Nashville who were devastated by the tornado and now this on top.
She and Ivey then introduced the debut of “Someone Else’s Problem”, a song the duo wrote together during Price’s most recent pregnancy.
