Originally performed by Apple, “I Know” is produced by King Princess with additional production from Mike Malchicoff and features guitar work from Tommy Brenneck of Menahan Street Band.
Of the song King Princess says, “‘I Know’ is one of my favorite songs of all time. Fiona said everything I would ever want to say to someone I love. Her giving me this song to sing, and singing it with me, is the greatest of gifts.”
Apple explains, “I don’t remember how it started, or why we were put together, but I was sent a song of hers and I just love her voice, I love her swagger, I love her charisma. We met up and we became fast friends and I came to really love her heart and her mind. She wanted to do the song ‘I Know,’ but it’s not really a duet. So, I wanted her to be able to sing it like a cover, singing to her person. I’m just in the background doing the Rhodes piano and harmonies, like I’m standing with my arm around her like a really really low-key hype man. So that’s the story behind that and have a wonderful day.”
King Princess is currently on a sold out headline tour of North America with stops in New York, Boston, D.C., Atlanta, Austin, Los Angeles and many more. This year will also see her on the festival circuit with performances scheduled at Coachella, Governors Ball,Bonnaroo and Boston Calling, with more to be announced.
