New York native Emily King is set to release her latest studio album Special Occasion on May 5 via ATO Records. The new body of work is King’s first album in 4 years, following her multi-Grammy-nominated Scenery. Across eleven dynamic tracks, including “This Year,” “False Start,” and “Bad Memory” (featuring special guest Lukas Nelson), King shares a real-time exploration of the endless dimensions of heartbreak. Using music as a means of meditation, King works through the most overwhelming emotions with ineffable grace and resilience.
Coinciding with Special Occasion’s release, Emily will embark on a month-long North American headlining tour. Kicking off on May 5 in South Orange, NJ, the tour takes Emily to some of the most esteemed venues of her career.
