The eagerly awaited second album from King Princess will be released on July 29. Titled Hold On Baby, the track will be released via Zelig and Columbia. 

The album’s record production includes collaborations with Mark Ronson, Ethan Gruska, Aaron Dessner, Bryce Dessner, Dave Hamelin, Shawn Everett, and Tobias Jesso Jr. The LP also contains contributions from Zach Fogarty, Amy Allen, and Fousheé.

Hold On Baby will launch the single “For My Friends” and two new songs that will be released on June 8: “Cursed” and “Too Bad.” 

“I want this album to give you all some strength in accepting ourselves, as chaotic as we can be,” King Princess said in a statement. 

“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,” she added. 

The debut album from King Princess, Cheap Queen, was launched in October 2019. The project features production and composition by the artist herself with Mike Malchicoff.
