Well hey, one day ahead of New Music Friday, here’s a brand new EP from one of last year’s best “new” artists no one saw coming -- a surprise EP from Margo Price, available right now on Jack White’s Third Man Records.

We put “new” in quotes because the East Nashvillian has been making music for a while; she recorded three albums with the band Buffalo Clover and performed live with the sometimes-Sturgill Simpson-featuring group Margo and the Pricetags, before releasing Midwest Farmer’s Daughter to critical acclaim in 2016. The album cycle included an SNL musical guest gig, making her almost certainly the most under-the-radar guest that season.

Anyway, the new Weakness EP contains four new songs, of which the rollicking title track and expansive, jam-ready “Paper Cowboy” have already been staples in her summer live sets. 

The EP will be available physically as a pair of two-song 45’s tomorrow, but for now, you can stream it below.
