Brooklyn-born singer and musician King Princess returns with her second album ‘Hold On Baby,’ almost three years after her transformative debut “Cheap Queen.”
She revealed the album’s artwork in June on Instagram alongside a manifesto and shared that the album is about “making a home for us to feel safe and weird and messy and imperfect.” She continued, “You are not alone in your feelings.”
Shortly after, King Princess shared two singles, “Cursed” and “Too Bad,” after the album’s announcement, accompanying both singles with a video directed by Quinn Wilson.
She released two singles, “Little Brother,” featuring alt-pop singer Fousheé and “For My Friends,” earlier this year.
The album starts off with “I Hate Myself, I Want to Party,” a self-loathing anthem that acts as a catalyst towards her journey towards self-love. By the third song, “Winter Is Hopeful,” King Princess professes her love to Wilson, her partner and creative collaborator.
The album speaks to the sentiment that it is okay to struggle, more importantly, it is okay to be you, and she relays this message by telling her fans to “Hold On Baby.”
King Princess goes on tour Sept. 28 with Charlotte, North Carolina as the first stop.
“Hold On Baby” is out now via Zelig Records.
