King Princess Announces Debut Album ‘Cheap Queen,’ New Song ‘Prophet’

Brooklyn-born singer-songwriter will set out on a headlining tour this fall

King Princess will release her debut album, Cheap Queen, this fall on Mark Ronson’s Zelig Records. She made the announcement with the release of the LP’s latest single, “Prophet.”

“Prophet” is a soulful rock slow-burner where the “Pussy Is God” singer thinks about someone she’s infatuated with. “I can only think about you/And what it’s like to walk around you/And why they like to talk about you/’Cause I can only think about you,” she says on the chorus.

Though no official date has been announced, Cheap Queen is set for this fall, most likely ahead of her also just-announced headlining tour which begins this October. It will follow a spattering of festival dates in the coming months for the singer. The 20-year-old made her debut last year with the song “1950,” which is inspired by Todd Haynes’ Carol. She subsequently released the EP Make My Bed as well as a few one-off singles in the interim. Last month, she appeared on mentor Mark Ronson’s Late Night Feelings.
