WATCH HER DEBUT PERFORMANCE OF “SHAME” ON LATE SHOW WITH STEPHEN COLBERT WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 15TH

(New York – August 10, 2018) Three-time Grammy-nominated and Platinum-selling artist Elle King today releases “Shame,” her brand new single with an accompanying video.  CLICK HERE to watch/listen. “Shame” is the first track from her forthcoming second studio album to be released via RCA Records.  Elle co-wrote “Shame” with Tim Pagnotta who produced the single.  More details about the album and what was an emotionally challenging, but artistically productive period of her life, will be revealed in the coming weeks.

In the video for “Shame,” directed by Dano Cerny, Elle plays the role of a charismatic cult leader in the land of Los Angeles where she reigns supreme.  “Shame” is a fun, devilish track that embraces bad influences: “I can make you better babe, Come pray with me, Get saved with me….I’m a fire, just a spark under your halo.”

Speaking about the album, Elle says:

“I’ve been on a long, wild, intense and ultimately healing trip the past two years writing and recording this album.  ‘Shame’ is a cool lead track because I get to be a little naughty and because it’s super fun to play with The Brethren.   There are some new sounds both on the album and in how we are working the songs up for our shows…horns!  Who doesn’t love horns?!   I’m really just excited for people to hear the whole album though because my whole heart is on there.”

Elle’s debut album Love Stuff, a sultry, badass mix of rock and roll, blues, and country, with a twinge of pop — featured the breakthrough single “Ex’s & Oh’s,” which earned her two Grammy nominations and was certified double platinum. The track, about leaving behind a string of brokenhearted exes, hit No. 1 on Billboard’s “Hot Rock Songs Chart,” and topped the AAA, Hot AC, and Alternative Radio charts, leading King to become the second female artist in 18 years to reach No. 1 at the latter format.  She was also featured on Dierks Bentley’s Grammy-nominated No. 1 Country Airplay hit “Different For Girls” (she performed it with Bentley at the CMA Awards and took home an award for “Musical Event of the Year”).
