King Princess unveils a new song, “For My Friends,” today alongside a video directed by Nick Harwood. The track is taken from her forthcoming, highly anticipated sophomore album, Hold On Baby, out later this year.
“I thought it would be extra fab to begin releasing this new record with a song about my two best friends from high school,” King Princess says. “These girls have been through the pits with me, and the more time I spend with them as an adult, the more I’m reminded that they are my home. So thank you my angel horse queens for sticking with me. I love you all and I can’t wait to give you this song.”
Additionally, King Princess confirms The Hold On Baby Tour, a North American run of headline dates later this year with stops at historic venues including Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre and New York’s Radio City Music Hall.

King Princess unveils a new song “Little Bother” featuring Fousheé today. King Princess and Fousheé wrote the song alongside Zach Fogarty (A$AP Rocky, Girlpool, Claud), who is also a co-producer.
“I have been a big fan of Fousheé for a while, so when we started DM’ing and eventually set a date in the studio, it was a dream,” King Princess says. “‘Little Bother’ kind of came out of nowhere; Zach had the guitar part and Fou and I just started going off. It became this song about tiptoeing around someone you’ve lost and feeling like a pest. It poses questions to a person who may not be listening at all and I think that’s a beautiful sentiment.”
Additionally, King Princess will begin supporting Kacey Musgraves on her U.S. tour next week.

Cyndi Lauper hosts this benefit for True Colors United which works prevent and end homelessness among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth. 100% of the net proceeds of Home for the Holidays goes to support the work of True Colors United to prevent and end this urgent issue.
This year’s lineup includes Billie Eilish, Bette Midler, Brandi Carlile, Brittany Howard, Cher, Dolly Parton, King Princess, Meg Myers, Phoebe Bridgers, Taylor Swift and more.
“It’s been a crazy year, but I am grateful for so many things – my immensely talented and generous friends who keep showing up for us year after year; the technology that is going to make it possible to bring our virtual concert to more people than ever; and all of our partners who help True Colors United do the work that we do. The Home for the Holidays concert is 10 years and over 100 artists in, and has raised over three million dollars, which is beyond what I could have imagined when we began. Most importantly though, we are truly helping LGBTQ young people experiencing homelessness. And to all of the fans who watch, donate, and celebrate with us, you are family. And I thank you.” – Cyndi Lauper
