Margo Price has announced the October 20 release of her new album All American Made! Delivering on the promise of her 2016 debut Midwest Farmer’s Daughter – an album that took her from country underdog to breakout star – Price raises the stakes considerably on ‘All American Made,’ offering twelve new, original songs that explore long nights and hard days, wild women and cocaine cowboys, politics and sexism, with plainspoken poetry and cutting insight.
NASHVILLE, September 7, 2017 – Margo Price has announced the October 20 release of her new album All American Made! Delivering on the promise of her 2016 debut Midwest Farmer’s Daughter – an album that took her from country underdog to breakout star – Price raises the stakes considerably on ‘All American Made,’ offering twelve new, original songs that explore long nights and hard days, wild women and cocaine cowboys, politics and sexism, with plainspoken poetry and cutting insight.
Participating independent record stores will be the only retailers to carry a limited edition, sky blue vinyl version of All American Made with an LP jacket and insert, both screenprinted and assembled by hand, available on release date.
Sessions for ‘All American Made’ commenced shortly after the 2016 election with Price and her hard-touring band – Kevin Black (bass), Jamie Davis (electric guitar), Micah Hulscher (piano), Jeremy Ivey (acoustic guitar/bass/harmonica), Dillon Napier (drums), and Luke Schneider (pedal steel) – returning to Memphis to work at Sam Phillips Recording, just down the street from the original Sun Studios where she cut her debut. Once again, Grammy-winner Matt Ross-Spang and Alex Munoz helmed the sessions, co-producing with Price and Ivey. It proved an incredibly fruitful period, yielding over thirty new songs. From those, Price selected all the tracks that appear on ‘All American Made’ plus her recent surprise-release ‘Weakness’ EP, which earned praise from the New York Times, NPR and Pitchfork, who hailed the title track’s “fiery country-soul” and “gritty momentum.” Last week, Price released a hell-raising, fire-starting, liquor store-robbing video for “Weakness,” watch here.
Real-deal country music may be the most prominent touchstone on All American Made, with the genre’s éminence grise Willie Nelson dueting with Price on the heart-stopping “Learning to Lose,” but touches of classic soul and R&B inform many of the arrangements here, fusing two of Tennessee’s greatest musical exports. The funky “Do Right By Me” grooves with gospel legends The McCrary Sisters on backing vocals, and the driving “A Little Pain” features sweeping orchestration by Memphis legend Lester Snell (the man responsible for the string arrangements in “Shaft”).
Margo and her band are pleased to also announce the ‘Nowhere Fast’ headline tour for early 2018, in addition to fall festivals and shows with Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, Willie Nelson, Chris Stapleton, and Eric Church. All album pre-orders through Third Man Records before Sunday, September 10th at midnight CST will receive a code for access to an early exclusive Nowhere Fast tour ticket pre-sale on Tuesday, September 12 at 10am local time. Tickets will be available for general on sale on Friday, September 15 at 10am local time. See full dates below.
