Margo Price performs Bob Dylan cover on CBS' 'This Morning', says upcoming album songs 'have new meaning now'
The singer appeared on the CBS show's Saturday Sessions segment to promote her album 'That’s How Rumors Get Started' which is set to drop on July 10
Nashville-based country music star Margo Price recently made an appearance on the Saturday Sessions segment of the CBS show 'This Morning' to promote her latest album 'That's How Rumors Get Started' which is set to drop in July. Price treated viewers to a lovely stay-at-home musical performance with her backing band that featured three songs, including a Bob Dylan cover and two new songs that feature on her latest album.
The singer performed the unreleased B-side 'Drifter' and 'Letting Me Down' from her new album, and also did a splendid rendition of Bob Dylan's 'Things Have Changed' with her band members who all performed from their respective homes. You can check out the Bob Dylan cover below.
The singer had previously revealed that her new album would drop on July 10 and also shared a new music video for her song 'Letting Me Down' on June 10. Along with the welcome announcement, the singer also shared, "Take me back to the day I started trying to paint my masterpiece so I could warn myself of what was ahead. Time has rearranged, it has slowed down, it has manipulated things like it always does... The words to some of these songs have changed meaning, they now carry heavier weight."
She also revealed, "I've seen the streets set ablaze, the sky set on fire. I've been manic, heartbroken for the world, heartbroken for the country, heartbroken from being heartbroken again and again." Price had originally planned to release 'That's How Rumors Get Started' in May, but the date got postponed to July due to the recent coronavirus pandemic, which put a halt on production and logistics schedules for most of the entertainment industry.
The singer also revealed that the album's delay was due to her guitarist husband Jeremy Ivey contracting the virus. "He was in a worse state than I've ever seen him in my whole life," Price said on the show. She added, "He got thin and frail and he was like sleeping 12 to 14 hours a day, and I was pretty terrified." Thankfully, Ivey seems to have recovered from his ordeal and is much better shape now.
The talented singer-songwriter couple performed on the 'In My Room' video series in April and Price later released a surprise album, 'Perfectly Imperfect at the Ryman' in May, in lieu of her new album's postponement. Speaking about her upcoming album, Price admitted, "I didn't really know how to self-promote in a pandemic, and I still don't know if I'm quite prepared for that. But I know that people are hungry for music and art, and a way to escape." Make sure you check out 'That's How Rumors Get Started' when it drops next month.
