Margo Price is a Nashville-based singer-songwriter with a devastating old-school country voice. She’s also an Artist To Watch and the first country artist signed to Jack White’s Third Man label. Next week, she’ll release her new album Midwest Farmer’s Daughter, and a few days ago, she shared its absolutely devastating opening track “Hands Of Time.” That song is both a pocket autobiography and a mission statement, and it just knocks me out; it’s one of my favorite songs of the year thus far. The rest of her new album doesn’t quite ascend to those lofty heights, but it’s still a great piece of ’70s-style country not too far removed from Chris Stapleton’s Traveller. And right now, via NPR, you can stream the whole thing below.
Midwest Farmer’s Daughter is out 3/25 on Third Man.
