King Princess will return to Australia in early 2023 in support of her latest album release, 2022’s Hold On Baby (out now via Sony Music Entertainment Australia). King Princess’ sophomore effort delivered a swathe of critical acclaim for the talented singer, real name is Mikaela Straus. Straus produced the LP alongside a who’s who of talent, including: Mark Ronson, Ethan Gruska, Aaron Dessner, Bryce Dessner, Dave Hamelin, Shawn Everett and Tobias Jesso Jr.
Led by lead single ‘Let Us Die’ (dedicated to the late Taylor Hawkins, who contributed drums to the song), and tracks such as ‘Too Bad’ and ‘Cursed’ (watch the double video here), Hold On Baby saw King Princess turn “inward throughout the writing process, peeling back layers in a more intimate way than ever before” said Consequence, with Daily Beast describing the album as “her boldest art yet”.
Earning widespread critical acclaim from the likes of The New York Times, Pitchfork, NPR, Rolling Stone, King Princess has performed on “Saturday Night Live,” “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” and “The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon”.
Back in 2018, the then 19-year-old broke out overnight with her smash hit debut single ‘1950’, an ode to untold queer histories. The track immediately became an overnight hit, with over 600 million streams to date and eventually achieving Platinum status in the United States and Australia. That same year, her debut album Cheap Queen saw iconic US producer Ronson label her “a prodigy in the making”, Ronson having released the debut on his own Zelig Records label, distributed through Columbia/Sony.
As peerless vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer, King Princess is a pop superstar for modern times… don’t miss her live on stage!
