One month after debuting the Cody Critcheloe-directed music video for “Prophet,” King Princess is sharing another new single in support of her anticipated debut studio album Cheap Queen. This time around, the Brooklyn-bred, 20-year-old musician is teaming up with Father John Misty for a record titled “Ain’t Together.”

“He [Father John Misty] came in and laid down some super psycho, amazing Beatles drums,” King Princess previously told Billboard when opening up about the studio sessions that birthed “Ain’t Together,” recalling her encounter with Father John Misty. “I was like, ‘Give me Ringo, honey!’”

“If you listen through, you’re gonna get the story, and really enjoy it. I want a f*cking saga, honey! I want a five paragraph thesis, girl! I want content! Start to finish!” King Princess added, sharing some insight into Cheap Queen‘s narrative and overall sonic and creative direction. “There’s a lot of big instrumental moments, and there’s a lot of rock-out moments. For me, that connects my live shows and my record. These kids have been listening to these songs live without a recorded version.”

Cheap Queen was written, recorded and produced by King Princess and Mike Malchicoff. Besides Father John Misty, King Princess’ debut LP will also feature collaborations with Tobias Jesso Jr. and The Dap-Kings.

You can listen to King Princess’ new, Father John Misty-aided single “Ain’t Together above. King Princess’ debut album Cheap Queen is scheduled to see release on October 25 via Zelig/Columbia Records.
