What a gift Emily King is. As with all good R&B, her music is smooth and groovy, but it also has a tender, almost ethereal quality that is singularly hers. I defy anyone to listen to “Georgia” or “Distance” and not be transported to a place where heartbreak is just a bit more bearable. The world can always use more of that sort of quiet optimism, so how lucky we are to have a new single from King, “Look At Me Now”, in anticipation of a brand new album!
In reverse order: the album is called Scenery, and will be available from ATO Records on the first of February, 2019. You can pre-order it now here. “Look At Me Now”, meanwhile, is the second single we have off the album (last month’s “Remind Me” will be on Scenery as well). It’s a mischievously triumphant twist on the typical breakup song, and makes for another strong taste of what’s sure to be a standout record come 2019.
Emily King has a handful of shows lined up in mid-November, and you can get more info about those, as well as whatever full tours she has planned to support Scenery, via her Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and official website!
