King Princess drops new music
The latest single from King Princess is Ohio.
Directed by Cody Critcheloe, the music video evokes images of Bette Midler performing in gay bathhouses before breaking out into a full-throttle concert performance.
Who is King Princess?
It’s impossible to ignore the ridiculously talented King Princess – every track she releases is a total bop, backed up by super-strong music videos that demand attention.
Born in 1998 in Brookly, King Princess – known as Mikaela Straus when not on stage – was immersed in music from a young age. Her father was a sound engineer, and she was a keen student of a number of instruments as well as the production process.
Signed to Mark Ronson’s label, King Princess launched her recording career in February 2018, with the release of thing single 1950. The song is a tribute to the novel The Price of Salt by Patricia Highsmith, and is a celebration of queer love.
She’s been a hit on the festival circuit, and has clearly established herself as an artist worth watching.
King Princess talks publicly about identifying as part of the LGBTQ community.
