Today, King Princess releases “For My Friends,” a new song with a video directed by Nick Harwood. The song is off her upcoming sophomore album, Hold On Baby, which will be released later this year.
“I felt it would be particularly cool to start this new record off with a song about my two best pals from high school,” King Princess explains. “These girls have been through hell with me, and the more time I spend with them as an adult, the more I realize they are my family. So, thank you for staying with me, my heavenly horse queens. I adore you all and can’t wait to share this song with you.”
In addition, King Princess has announced The Hold On Baby Tour, a North American run of headline dates later this year that will include stops at historic venues like the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles and Radio City Music Hall in New York—see the full itinerary below and visit here for more information.
The new song comes after Fousheé’s “Little Bother,” which Rolling Stone described as a “glitzy slow-burner,” and a string of tour dates supporting Kacey Musgraves.
King Princess is a vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, and songwriter from Brooklyn, New York. His debut single, “1950,” an ode to untold LGBTQ histories, became an overnight smash success with over 560 million streams and went on to achieve Platinum status in the United States and Australia.
Her debut album, Cheap Queen, was released in 2019 through Mark Ronson’s Zelig Records/Columbia Records to widespread critical acclaim from publications such as The New York Times, Pitchfork, NPR, Rolling Stone, and others, and she has appeared on “Saturday Night Live” and “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.” With festival gigs at Coachella, Glastonbury, Governors Ball, and Bonnaroo, her sold-out tours have brought her all over the world, landing her on the covers of V Magazine, GQ Style UK, and Highsnobiety and more.
