King Princess produced the album alongside a ton of collaborators, together with Mark Ronson, Ethan Gruska, Aaron Dessner, Bryce Dessner, Dave Hamelin, Shawn Everett, and Tobias Jesso Jr. Additionally they collaborated with Zach Fogarty, Amy Allen, and Fousheé. Right here’s what King Princess wrote in regards to the album:
I’ve solely ever written about heartbreak. It felt simpler to speak about myself via different individuals. To jot down about conditions that precipitated me ache, and to make use of them to justify my very own anxieties and despair. It lastly reached some extent the place I needed to flip the barrel on myself. I’m foolish, I’m anxious, I’m unhappy, I’m attractive. I didn’t wish to be scared to speak about these issues anymore. The infinite dichotomy of issues that make me up. I’m not a lady, not fairly a boy, a lesbian, but additionally homosexual because the day is lengthy.
I’m not one factor. I’m unsure I like myself, however I’m figuring it out. Maintain On Child is a seek for a brand new heartbreak. It’s a love letter to my girlfriend. It’s a agency learn of myself. And it’s a reminder of the totems in my life that give me hope; my canine who’s my fiercest companion and the owl that represents my grandparents.
I would like this album to provide you all some energy in accepting ourselves; as chaotic as we might be. It’s not straightforward being alive and I really feel indebted to you all for offering me air to breathe on this insane world. That’s what King Princess has at all times been about at its core. Making a house for us to really feel secure and peculiar and messy and imperfect. You aren’t alone in your emotions. I guess you I really feel and have felt the identical. This album is for anybody who wants a sanctuary to be weak. I’m right here with you, and I really like you.
