Emily King will release Change of Scenery: Remix EP, a collection of fresh remixes of five tracks from her critically acclaimed album Scenery, on October 11, and today ATO releases the remix of her dynamic single “Can’t Hold Me” by the renowned producer MachinedrumBillboard premiered the track today, writing, “The intimate, sensual tension that King dances around on the original track becomes an all-out sultry affair as the new production makes space for an irresistible dance beat led by propulsive production and spacey synths.”


“When ATO approached me with the remix concept I was really excited about the prospect of having a fresh take on these records,” says King, “plus I grew up in the 90’s when remixes were almost mandatory to an artist’s catalogue. It’s been super fun hearing how these talented artists interpret the music in ways I wouldn’t have imagined.”

“‘Can’t Hold Me,’ like most of Emily’s songs, is such a powerfully visual song,” says Machinedrum. “This feeling of independence that the lyrics evoke inspired me to make a celebratory version of the song.”

Rave Reviews for Scenery:


Scenery is a precise-yet-fluid blend of ’80s pop and rock, contemporary R&B and light jazz touches that, together, reveal a starry-eyed earnestness.” – NPR


“Sleek, vibrant R&B that’s packed with 1980s soundtrack flourishes and big moments; it’s the perfect frame for her extraordinary voice.” – PITCHFORK


“Wide and expansive and embraces all manners of genre befitting a child of ’90s hip-hop and pop music who also adored traditional soul music.” – CHICAGO TRIBUNE


“A lithe vocalist who deftly employs subtlety, rewarding close listening.” – WBEZ SOUND OPINIONS


Scenery rings out with joy and hope. The production is a stunning combination of jazz-inflected R&B and ’80s pop that’s precise but not fussy, textured but never overdone.” – KPCC THE FRAME


“The vulnerability that’s implied in King’s calming vocal caress is remarkable… The skill she shows elevates her above much of the competition, imbuing her with a decided level of class and credence.” – PASTE
