Margo Price is set to release her fourth studio album, Strays, early next year as the follow-up to her 2020 album, That’s How Rumors Get Started. Out on January 13, the singer-songwriter boasts a meditation on loss, lies, failure, substance abuse, and letting go of trauma and pain. A celebration of freedom, Strays promises to be Price’s most nuanced record to date.

Produced by Price and Jonathan Wilson (who has also worked with the likes of Angel Olsen and Father John Misty), Strays was primarily recorded in the summer of 2021 during a six-day mushroom trip alongside her husband Jeremy Ivy. Instilled with newfound confidence and unabashed creativity, Price and her band tracked live in the same room, bulldozing the notions of her previous albums.

Featured on the album are additional vocals from Sharon Van Etten and Lucius and guitar from Mike Campbell. Price calls it her most “collaborative record yet.”

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

Ahead of the full album’s release, Price has shared the lead single from the record this morning (Sept. 20) titled “Change of Heart.” One of the very first songs she wrote for the project, the track features a long, hypnotic riff underneath deeply introspective lyrics. Price has also shared the accompanying video for the track, directed by Courtney Hoffman.

To celebrate the album’s announcement, Price will embark on a North American tour from November through early March. Stops along the way include Los Angeles’ Fonda Theatre, New York’s Webster Hall, and Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. Tickets for the 30-plus shows will be on sale today from 10 am local time.
