Today, 3x Grammy nominated singer-songwriter Emily King releases a reimagined version of her single “Bad Memory,” with 9x Grammy-winner Norah Jones. King recently joined Jones on her podcast, “Norah Jones is Playing Along,” where the long-time friends connected on their New York City upbringings and jazz roots, and recorded the spellbinding performance. You can watch the video HERE and listen to the full episode HERE.
“Bad Memory,” originally performed with Grammy Award-winning superstar Lukas Nelson, is one of eleven tracks on King’s Special Occasion. The album debuted in May to massive acclaim, including praises from HUNGER, The Line of Best Fit, Wonderland, NOTION, Echoes, Record Collector, NPR’s All Songs Considered, KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic, OkayPlayer, and more, and King recently wrapped her headlining tour where she played to sold out crowds across the US.
King recently discussed the album and her inspirations on NPR’s It’s Been A Minute as well as WNYC’s Soundcheck, which also included captivating performances of “Special Occasion,” “Medal,” and the emotional “False Start.” Last month, she performed the title track on Live with Kelly and Mark – you can watch the performance HERE– and she’s set to perform the hit single, “This Year,” on the show later this summer. She also sat down with Anthony Mason for an incredibly moving conversation about the album on CBS Mornings – you can watch the emotional interview HERE.
