Watch video for ‘Legends Never Die’ with Shania Twain HERE
Columbia Records is sharing “Show Pony,” the eagerly awaited EP from country artist and songwriter Orville Peck. Listen to the EP, which is available worldwide everywhere here. The self-produced, six-track EP features new songs including a duet with reigning “Queen of Country Pop” Shania Twain, “Legends Never Die,” as well as a cover of Bobbie Gentry’s “Fancy."
In addition to the release of “Show Pony,” the official video for “Legends Never Die” is now live; watch the video here. Directed by Cameron Duddy of Midland, with narrative and creative direction by Peck and his creative director Carlos Santolalla, the video is chock full of cameos including Jaida Essence Hall (winner of “RuPaul’s Drag Race”), singer Evil and acclaimed filmmaker John Waters who serves as the narrator to the introduction. The true stars of the video are Orville and Twain; clad in an extra-long fringed mask and animal print respectively, they take the already kicking Nashville party into overdrive.
Says Peck, “ ‘Show Pony’ is the EP I’ve always wanted to make. Having spent the past year on the road and then in quarantine, I was able to reflect on all that had happened since the release of ‘Pony’ and expand upon it. This is a collection of stories and I hope listeners will join me in them. I cannot thank Shania enough for being part of this; she has always been a hero of mine and her music made me feel so empowered growing up. As cliché as it sounds, recording with her and getting to get up on stage and sing with her in Nashville is a dream come true. No words really.”
Prior to the release of “Show Pony,” Orville shared two tracks: “Summertime” which explores hope and the belief of perseverance and patience and “No Glory in the West” which examines how exhausting that can be.
