The rise, fall, and redemption of Margo Price will be told with her new album, Strays. Out on January 13th, 2023, the follow-up to her acclaimed 2020 LP That’s How Rumors Get Started will chronicle the dizzying highs and crushing lows of the singer-songwriter’s recent life. Along with Tuesday’s announcement, Price shared the second single, “Change Of Heart”, which follows “Been To The Mountain“, released earlier this month.

While Price’s previous work has dealt openly with her struggles with grief, addiction, trauma, and more, the Grammy-nominated songwriter is letting go with Strays. The death of one of her twin boys, Ezra, in 2010 remains a constant source of pain, but with a newly alcohol-free outlook on life, Price has returned from the mountain with “a celebration of freedom in its many, feral forms.”

“I feel this urgency to keep moving, keep creating,” Price said in a press release. “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.”

Price recorded Strays over five days in the summer of 2021 at Fivestar Studio in California’s Topanga Canyon, but the roots stretch back to the previous summer, when she took a trip to South Carolina. During a mushroom-filled six-day excursion with her husband and frequent collaborator Jeremy Ivey, Price began writing what would eventually become Strays. The album of ten original songs also features additional vocals from Sharon Van Etten and Lucius, in addition to guitar from Mike Campbell and strings, synthesizers, and other previously untapped sounds for Price.

Margo Price will take Strays on the road with a run of over 30 new tour dates set to carry her from November 2022 through March 2023. The new shows will feature support from Kam Franklin (The Suffers), The Deslondes, Daniel Donato’s Cosmic Country, Lola Kirke, Tre Burt, and Jessi Colter at various stops. A pre-sale for tickets to the newly announced shows begins at 10 a.m. local time tomorrow, September 21st, with tickets going on sale to the public on Friday at 10 a.m. local time.

Among the tour dates are a string of book appearances in support of Price’s debut memoir, Maybe We’ll Make It. Out on October 4th via University of Texas Press, the book tells the story of Price’s humble beginnings moving to Nashville with $57 through her ascension as one of the faces of the alt-country movement.

“Margo’s book hits you right in the gut—and the heart—just like her songs,” Willie Nelson said.
