King Princess’ latest track “Prophet” is finally out and it has us in an even deeper obsession with the eclectic Brooklyn-based pop artist. This is the second single off of her highly anticipated debut album, which will be released later this year from Zelig Records–King Princess’ friend and recent collaborator Mark Ronson’s label. 

“Prophet” is a satisfyingly smooth pop-funk song with an infectious eerie mood. With velvety layered vocals over cash-register clicks, a stand-out bass, and hypnotizing guitar riffs; King Princess has released a dynamic, addicting track that stands out on her discography. 

She’s infatuated with a person who’s under the limelight, wrapped up in the thought of them, along with everyone else. “Oh, no apologies, twisting your words and your prophecies/ Oh oh, and honestly, it’s the price of the prodigy wannabe…” When you’re in the spotlight, you’ll find that some will grow obsessed with the thought of knowing you, putting you on a pedestal and viewing you as more of a divine being. This song highlights this obsessive behavior. King Princess knew exactly what she was doing with this track.

“’Cause I can only think about you
And what it’s like to walk around you
And why they like to talk about you
‘Cause I can only think about you
'Cause I can only think about you
And what it’s like to walk around you
And why they like to talk about you
'Cause I can only think about you”

You can listen to what King Princess has confessed as one of her favorite tracks she’s ever created below:

The queer icon is set to hit the festival circuit, along with a headlining Cheap Queen Tour, around North America and Europe later this summer and fall.
