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.

Along with the exciting LP news, King Princess is sharing a new track in “Prophet”. “’Cause I can only think about you / And what it’s like to walk around you / And why they like to talk about you,” she pines. On Twitter, she called the tune “one of my favorite songs I’ve ever written.”

Hear “Prophet” down below. Update — Wednesday, August 7th: The official video,
directed by Cody Critcheloe/SSION, has been revealed. It stars King Princess herself, dressed up in a football uniform and construction work gear. Towards the end, she’s also seen displayed as a cake.
