KING Discuss Their New Album, Early Influences And More On NPR
The lovely and immensely talented ladies of KING took chopped it up the other day with the folks at NPR, waxing about their new album We Are KING, early influences and taking control of their musical kingdom with Audie Cornish curating the discussion. The trio (comprised of soul-strutting sisters Amber and Paris Strothers and their close friend and multi-instrumentalist/producer Anita Bias) go deep in to some their favorite cuts and previewing them on the spot. We get tastes of dreamy soul cuts like “Hey” and their lead-off single “Mister Chameleon,” for which we premiered a live visual just a few months back.
With all of the ethereal, reverie-soaked frequencies, it isn’t difficult to see how legends like Prince are taking notice and offering up their co-sign, actually inviting the ladies to open up for him. No doubt a bucket-list moment for the early year-end superlative contenders. Still no date or word on the new album, but you can listen to KING chop it up on NPR below to find out how queens can be such gracious kings. Cop their new single “Mister Chameleon” via iTunes today and stay tuned for the latest. It’s new album o’ clock.
