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

Speaking about the album, Elle King explains: “I decided to call it ‘Shake The Spirit’ because I was shaken to the core over the last year and a half. I was literally talking to ghosts. But making the album not only changed my life, it saved my life. It’s like when you see somebody who is struggling, you want to shake them. Putting this record out is like shaking myself awake.”
