I’ve only ever written about heartbreak. It felt easier to talk about me through other people. Writing about situations that caused me pain and using them to justify my own fears and depression. It eventually got to a point where I had to turn the barrel on myself. I’m silly, I’m scared, I’m sad, I’m sexy. I didn’t want to be afraid to talk about these things anymore. The infinite dichotomy of things that define me. I’m not a girl, not quite a boy, lesbian but also gay as the day is long.”

“I’m not a thing. I’m not sure if I like myself, but I’m finding out. Hold On Baby is a search for a new heartbreak. It’s a love letter to my girlfriend. It’s a steady read for me. And it’s a reminder of the totems in my life that give me hope; my dog, who is my wildest companion, and the owl, who represents my grandparents.”

“I want this album to give you all some strength to accept ourselves; as messy as we can be. It’s not easy being alive and I owe a debt of gratitude to all of you for giving me some breathing space in this crazy world. That’s what King Princess has always been at its core. Creating a home where we feel safe and weird and messy and imperfect. You are not alone with your feelings. I bet 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.

Later this summer, King Princess is embarking on the Hold On Baby Tour, including a NYC show October 3 at Radio City Music Hall With St Panther. Tickets for this show are still available.
