Margo Price Releases New Synthphonic Arrangement of "I'd Die For You"Two Nights of Live-Streamed, Audience-Free Concerts Set For Brooklyn Bowl Nashville, September 9-10
Today, Margo Price releases a new, very special synthphonic arrangement of "I'd Die For You," the spellbinding finale of her critically acclaimed new album That's How Rumors Get Started. Hailed as "transcendent" (Vulture), "invincible" (The Ringer) and "one for the ages" (Stereogum), "I'd Die For You" shows Price reaching new heights as a vocalist and songwriter, addressing her husband and children while she struggles to make sense of a society riddled with hate, greed and gentrification. Replacing the original recording's slow-burning chug of electric guitar with the glimmer of a grand piano and a stirring symphony of strings, this new version was inspired by a show-stopping performance Margo gave at Carnegie Hall this spring, one of her last live appearances before COVID-19 shut down the country.
Margo says, "'I'd Die For You' is the most important song on the album to me. It's about finding hope among our everyday struggles with violence, healthcare and racism. It's a love song but it's also a document of the human condition. Even though it was penned a couple years ago, it holds a deeper, new meaning to me now, especially given our current political climate, lack of overall leadership and the weight of the pandemic. It's a more political 'I Will Always Love You.'"
