King Princess, also known as Mikaela Straus, has revealed the release date for her sophomore album: Hold On Baby – it will be out July 29 through Zelig and Columbia. 

Some of her collaborators in the record production include 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 feature the single “For My Friends” and two new songs that will be out 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. 

King Princess launched her debut album, Cheap Queen, in October 2019. She wrote and produced the album alongside Mike Malchicoff in Los Angeles.
