Margo Price follows up this month’s mighty release of Strays with a brand new music video for album highlight ‘Radio’ feat. Sharon Van Etten.
The standout collaboration began from a hot pink house in Nashville, the video captures Price in the midst of technicolored catharsis as she drowns out the noise of critics and commenters who keep pushing her around, trying to change her face and sound. Accompanied by the harmonies that co-writer Sharon Van Etten sends through the waves of 1970s-era TV screens, she finds herself perfectly confident and content being all alone, moving from red velvet bedspreads to an opulent array of mirrors, filling each room with nude dance solos and clouds of weed smoke.
“To me, this song is about turning down the noise and opinions of my haters and people who try to tear me down. It’s about having confidence in yourself and your vision. It’s also a pun about being naked that I lifted from Marilyn Monroe,” Margo said of the track. “There’s a real freedom about being completely truthful about who I am, flaws and all and that’s what I was trying to capture in this song. The melody came to me when I was walking in the woods. I hummed the tune into my phone and when I got home, I picked up the guitar and made a demo. I sent it to Sharon and asked for her feedback, which she graciously gave. She helped me write some of the words and then went into the studio adding multiple layers of harmonies. Her voice is so strong, so haunting, when she sent me back the demo of her singing it, I got chills all over. I knew right then that this song had to go on the album.”
On top of releasing Strays, publishing her memoir ‘Maybe We’ll Make It’ and launching her own Sonos Radio podcast ‘Runaway Horses’ in recent months, Margo Price also just teamed with American cannabis brand Dad Grass to unveil a special collection of Margo Price x Mom Grass CBG joints and flower, handmade tie-dye tee shirts and embroidered dad hats, all of which invoke the free-spirited, psychedelic nature of this latest LP.

Backed by her longtime live band, Margo Price has returned to the road for the continuation of ‘Til The Wheels Fall Off. The extensive run will bring her to a sold-out Scoot Inn in Austin later this week, before heading to LA’s Fonda Theatre, NYC’s Webster Hall, Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium and more than two dozen other dates.
