LISTEN TO NEW TRACK “GOOD THING GONE”

LEAD SINGLE + VIDEO FOR “SHAME” OUT NOW

Praise for lead single “Shame”:

“The song, a shuttering, shimmying blast of pop… a brazen invitation to give in to temptation…she sings in a near growl.”Rolling Stone

“… mix(es) a bluesy tendency with her soulful tones, full of attitude and a catchy pop sensibility underlying its hard edges… give(s) her voice an extra raspy quality, making her sound distinctively her own.” - Time Magazine

“… the soulful Elle King captured hearts across the world with her sassy, lovelorn... ‘Ex’s & Oh’s’… ‘Shame’ (is) a brassy tune about bad-girl antics… unstoppable series of hooks, as if daring us to feel shame for loving a song this wickedly good.” – Paper

“If you thought the Black Keys had cornered the market on blues-based stompers, she's here to change your mind.” Refinery 29
