    Promising pop singer King Princess has formally announced her debut album. It’s titled Cheap Queen and is due for release this fall through Columbia Records and Mark Ronson imprint Zelig Records.

    Cheap Queen is named after her recent single of the same name. Her first-ever full-length follows 2018’s Make My Bed EP, a collection boasting the artist’s breakthrough single and one of our favorites of the year, “1950”. It also comes after her collaboration with Fiona Apple.
