Stream Emily King's Gorgeous New Album 'The Switch'
Emily King may very well be one of NYC's best kept secrets, an artist loved by the learned and accessible to a keen ear. And while her hometown reverence may be right up there with that ill little pork bun and Thai tea spot down on Bayard or Jarobi's Tribe Taco Tuesday pop-up happy-hour in BK (shameless plug, I know) it's King's timeless blend of pristine r&b chops and just a little bit of funk, paired to her brilliant vocal treatments that might just put her a notch or two above your cuddie local culinary treasures.
Last week the NYC-born&bred crooner let loose her third studio LP The Switch via The Wall Street Journal, and today, she's announced that she'll bring a live & direct revue of the stud record to six cities down the eastern seaboard. As someone that had the pleasure of catching an intimate set last week in which she previewed just half of the album, you may rest assured that this is one you don't want to miss. King and her four-piece ensemble (engineered by Black Messiah's Ben Kane) are precisely the dose of forward-minded funkateers you should be capping off any evening with. Below you will find a stream of Emily King's gorgeous new The Switch LP, along with the forthcoming tour dates, with stops to be announced down the line, so keep your ear to the ground for those in the weeks ahead. And if it's good to ya, grab your own copy of King's new record on iTunes today. Welcome back Miss King.
