Emily King’s New Album Scenery is Now Streaming on NPR First Listen

“Scenery is a precise-yet-fluid blend of ’80s pop and rock, contemporary R&B”

Emily King’s forthcoming album Scenery, out Feb 1 on ATO Records, is now streaming in full on NPR’s First Listen. Hear it now HERE.

Taken from her highly anticipated new album, Scenery (Feb 1, ATO Records), Emily says of the track, “I got tired of waiting around for someone else to please me. It became a song about self reliance. Realizing I didn’t need anyone else to make me feel good in any way, I only needed to trust myself.”

Scenery, produced by long time musical cohort Jeremy Most and mixed Tom Elmhirst (Adele, Amy Winehouse, David Bowie) was recorded in upstate New York, nestled in the Catskill Mountains, where Emily now makes her home after a lifetime of Lower East Side living. “Can’t Hold Me” is the latest single off of Scenery — coming after “Remind Me” and “Look at Me Now.”

Scenery follows the critically acclaimed album The Switch (2015) which included the hit “Distance” (more than 13 million streams). Following the album’s release, King performed on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, Conan, Prairie Home Companion, and toured with Alabama Shakes. This is her first release with ATO Records.

A proud New Yorker, Emily spent her first three decades living on the same Downtown block. She loved her home, her family, her friends, and her life there. But last year, when she finally resolved to challenge herself by moving out of her comfort zone, positive changes started taking shape immediately. In Upstate New York, the fresh air and fresh mentality gave her the proper space and perspective to create what would become the album of her career. Its name: Scenery.

“One of the best songwriters around at the moment.” – BBC’s Radio 1
