Emily King Premieres New Single “First Time”
Grammy-nominated Emily King returns with her first new music of 2021 today, the emotional new single “First Time.” “It’s remembering what it feels like to have been loved,” King says of the song. “To go back to that place in your mind at the time when you feel most alone.” “First Time,” which is the first of what will be more new song releases this year, premiered today on KCRW, who said, “The track supersedes time and genre, with King’s voice and lyrics cutting to the chase of human experience — a welcome reminder that behind our weary and weathered exteriors, tenderness is just a memory (or song) away.” King wrote “First Time” and co-produced it with Ben Kane, the Grammy-winning producer/engineer who previously worked on her Grammy-nominated 2019 LP Scenery and is known for his work with D’Angelo, PJ Morton, and Anderson.
