Margo Price Honors Elvis, Martin Luther King Jr. & John Lennon on New Single, "Long Live The King"

Physical Edition Available Through Price's New Mail-Order Record Club, "A Series of Rumors": Sign Up for Exclusive B-Sides, Covers & Collaborations

Perfectly Imperfect at The Ryman Livestream Set for May 21, More Tour Dates & Festival Appearances Announced for 2021


After spending several years performing it on tour, stunning crowds with the show-stopping staple of her live set, Margo Price has finally released her song "Long Live The King" as an official single. A favorite of both Price and her fans, the lyrics serve as a tribute to Elvis Presley, Martin Luther King Jr. and John Lennon. As Price ascends from tender eulogies to belting leads, the arrangement erupts into a wall of horns, organ and gospel choir. "'Long Live The King' is a song about three extraordinary men who changed the course of history for the better," says Margo Price. "But no one is without flaw and they each had a duality in their personalities. This song is also about not idolizing celebrities or putting people up on a pedestal because we are all human and we all make mistakes."

Listen to "Long Live The King" via Loma Vista: 

Today, Margo Price has also announced her own mail-order record club, A Series of Rumors. Over three monthly shipments, A Series of Rumors members will receive a limited edition, autographed box of 7" vinyl records featuring the music of Price's 2020 album, That's How Rumors Get Started, backed with exclusive B-sidescovers and unreleased collaborations.
