The month of June welcomes the start of Pride Month, and what better way to celebrate than to be blessed with a new King Princess track!
King Princess is one of New York’s biggest LGBTQ music artists, and ever since she rose to fame with her 2018 debut single ‘1950,’ it has been nonstop success. In late October of 2019, King Princess released her debut album Cheap Queen, and was met with immense critical acclaim – some of our favorite songs ever come from this album!
The album, along with all previous releases, explores the highs and lows of a relationship, the journey of self-identity, and queer love, all whilst mixing some beautifully written lyrics with dance/pop beat melodies.
Song of the Summer!
On June 1st, King Princess released the fan-favorite track ‘House Burn Down’ – and we can’t get enough! The song was first played live to fans during her 2018 tour, and ever since we have begged for it to be released as a single. The track perfectly showcases King Princess’s talent, being the perfect mixture of an upbeat pop song, with heavy guitar/rock influences, not to mention the dreamy lyrics and vocals! The song was co-produced by Mark Ronson and features drums and bass performances by Fabrizio Moretti and Nikolai Fraiture – what a talented group of individuals.
The new track is the perfect summer anthem, and we can’t wait to party to it, sing to it, and play it out loud whilst driving in the sun! We have played the song on repeat since its release, and apparently so has everybody else! ‘House Burn Down’ already has over 42 thousand streams on Spotify, and it hasn’t even been a week yet. You can listen HERE.
The new single is the third new release from King Princess’s new era, and will be performed alongside previous singles ‘Only Time Makes it Human’ and ‘Pain’ during the Heartbreak Odyssey virtual event on June 17th. The event will take place at 8PM ET/5PM PT, and will also coincide with a brand new merch drop on the King Princess website – we cannot wait! You can learn more about the Heartbreak Odyssey event HERE.
And if all of this wasn’t already enough, fans have also been blessed with King Princess as the face of Calvin Klein’s 2021 Pride Campaign – as she should be! Billboards have been spotted in New York City and Los Angeles, which showcase that King Princess is #proudinmycalvins.
We are living for the King Princess content atm and we can’t wait to see what else she has in store for us. We’re super excited for her to be joining Harry Styles for his 2022 Europe tour (iconic!), and we’re just holding out hope for a headline tour to follow soon after!
