King Princess unveils new singles 'Too Bad' and 'Cursed'

With her highly-anticipated new album set to land next month, King Princess has now unveiled a pair of new singles lifted from her forthcoming full-length.

The new tracks 'Too Bad' and 'Cursed' come accompanied by a stunning double video, directed by Quinn Wilson, and follow on from the previously shared cuts 'Little Bother' and 'For My Friends' in previewing her new LP 'Hold On Baby', which is out on the 29th July via Zelig Records/Columbia Records.

Speaking about the new record, she said, “I’ve only ever written about heartbreak. It felt easier to talk about myself through other people. To write about situations that caused me pain, and to use them to justify my own anxieties and depression. It finally reached a point where I had to turn the barrel on myself. I’m silly, I’m anxious, I’m sad, I’m sexy. I didn’t want to be scared to talk about those things anymore. The infinite dichotomy of things that make me up. I’m not a girl, not quite a boy, a lesbian, but also gay as the day is long.

“I’m not one thing. I’m not sure I like myself, but I’m figuring it out. Hold On Baby is a search for a new heartbreak. It’s a love letter to my girlfriend. It’s a firm read of myself. And it’s a reminder of the totems in my life that give me hope; my dog who is my fiercest companion and the owl that represents my grandparents.

“I want this album to give you all some strength in accepting ourselves; as chaotic as we can be. It’s not easy being alive and I feel indebted to you all for providing me air to breathe in this insane world. That’s what King Princess has always been about at its core. Making a home for us to feel safe and weird and messy and imperfect. You are not alone in your feelings. I bet you I feel and have felt the same. This album is for anyone who needs a sanctuary to be vulnerable. I’m here with you, and I love you.”
