Any new music from Margo Price is going to be more than welcome here, so we're thrilled that she's making a song from her new singles club, A Series of Rumors. "Long Live the King" is a tribute to Elvis Presley, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and John Lennon. Each man is given his own verse that not only explains what made each one great and their deaths but also mentions their flaws. The song goes a little more country than last year's That's How Rumors Get Started, but it would also have fit on that album. It's a lovely country rock ballad with plenty of soul and gospel thrown in for good measure.
In a press release, Margo Price says of the new song:
“‘Long Live the King’ is a song about three extraordinary men who changed the course of history for the better. 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.”
