KING premiere Native Land with The FADER and Perform on Conan with Corinne Bailey Rae

Los Angeles Grammy-winning trio KING partners with The FADER for an exclusive premiere of their brand new music video “Native Land.” Painting a wondrous and dreamy landscape, the ladies of KING pay homage to the before-and-after world with a guided journey through the circle of life. In turn, these discoveries brings a deeper sense of self that evolves into a newfound strength to pave a way for a more progressive future.

“For ‘Native Land,’ we collaborated with Filip Anthonissen to imagine a visual journey through the landscapes of birth, life, and death, paying homage throughout to every person’s unique ancestral story,” explains Paris Strother. “We love the surreal quality of this video – it’s been incredible to work with a series of artists who contribute so much to the narrative and bring the songs to life.”


“Native Land” is the third installment in KING’s animated video series of their critically acclaimed debut album, We Are KING, which has earned coveted top spots on “Best Of 2016 So Far” lists by TIME Magazine, Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, Complex, NPR, The Guardian, Stereogum, Noisey, Newsday and The QuietusEssence premiered their Muhammad Ali tribute “The Greatest” and praised the ladies for their “eclectic beats and lush harmonies.” Furthermore, Billboard premiered their “Carry On” music video and are “presently relishing in the love-themed set which bowed at No. 1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Albums chart and in the top 10 on Independent Albums.”




Along with the incredible reception to their debut album, 2016 has been quite the banner year for KING as they have been sharing their new music with fans across the globe with a sold-out world tour. Due to extraordinary popular demand, the ladies of KING are thrilled to be back on the road this Fall for an extended North American leg of their We Are KING Worldwide Tour.  Kicking off September 28th in San Diego, KING will also make stops in Los Angeles, New York, Seattle, Boston, and Atlanta among many other major cities. In addition to exclusive new arrangements of the album tracks, fans will also be privied to the outstanding talents of their special guests: Los Angeles singer-songwriter Joey Dosik and Brooklyn singer-songwriter Nick Hakim.  Full list of tour dates included below.


Also be sure to check out KING’s late-night television debut on Conan alongside Corinne Bailey Rae. The ladies performed the sensual fan favorite “Green Aphrodisiac“, which is one of the five KING collaborations on Corinne Bailey Rae’s latest studio album The Heart Speaks In Whispers. KING’s other contributions in which they co-wrote and performed on include “Been To The Moon“, “Tell Me”, “Horse Print Dress” and “Taken by Dreams.” Complex Magazine raved that their collaboration on “Green Aphrodisiac” has a  “soulful sound that perfectly matches [Corinne’s] lyricism.” And SoulBounce noted that the late-night performance on Conan was “probably one of [Corrine’s] most special performances to date because she was backed by the mellifluous harmonies of KING.”
