Rising artist Margo Price reflects on the hardships she’s endured in her biographical new track, “Hands of Time.”
A longtime purveyor of the East Nashville-based throwback country sound, Price honestly tells the story of her struggle to make it through everything from dead-end jobs, bad relationships to the loss of her young son. The 1960’s-inspired production makes the earnest and heart-wrenching song seem like it was plucked out of a stack of vinyls from Loretta Lynn and Tammy Wynette. Still, both Price’s sound and story are all her own, which is why she’s become one of the most buzz-worthy artists in alt-country.
“I’m more excited to share this song with than anything else on the record,” Price shared. “This is my story and I am so thankful for all the wonderful musicians and producers who helped me tell it.”
The song is the opening track to her upcoming album, Midwest Farmer’s Daughter, which is due out March 25 via Jack White’s Third Man Records. If the rest of the LP is on par with this impressive cut, it will likely be one of the most talked-about releases of 2016.
