Rising artist King Princess—the first act to be signed toMark Ronson’s label Zelig—debuts a new song, “Talia,” today. Listen here.
Of the song, King Princess says, “Everyone has different ways of dealing with heartbreak. This was mine, and I hope it helps somebody else in the same way.”
“Talia” follows breakout single “1950,” released in February to widespread adoration from the likes of Harry Styles, The xx’s Romy Madley Croft and Charli XCX, with more than 30 million streams to date.
Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, King Princess is a vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer. The product of a musical family, she spent much of her childhood tinkering on the vintage Neve board in her father’s Brooklyn studio Mission Sound, learning instrumentation along the way. At 11 she turned down a record deal in favor of finishing school, which eventually led her to USC’s Thornton School of Music for college. She studied there for a year with legendary pianist and singer Patrice Rushen before leaving USC to pursue music full time.
Further new music from King Princess is set for release this spring.
