Wildcard (week 19):
King Princess – Dirty Work

Some artistsโ€™ repertoire is better left untouched. Steely Dan is one of them. Their music is perfect, so why bother trying to make it even better?

However, no rules without exceptions. Enter American singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalistย King Princess (real name: Mikaela Mullaney Straus). She just released her own, show-stopping version of The Danโ€™s Dirty Work. It stays pretty true to the original, but her voice sounds a bit more tragic than David Palmerโ€™s. All in all, it does full justice to the legacy of the song that was one of the highlights op Steely Danโ€™s 1972 album Canโ€™t Buy A Thrill. A classic long-player, which also features their hits Reelinโ€™ In The Years and Do It Again.

King Princess recorded her version for Season 3 of TV series โ€˜Hacksโ€™. Hannah Einbinder, who stars in the series, is a good friend of Strausโ€™ and asked her to record the track. It appears at the end of Episode 2, which was aired only last week. Being all about toxic relationships, Dirty Work goes well with the theme of the series.

While working on her third studio album, King Princess is also about to make her acting debut. Sheโ€™s set to play in Season 2 of โ€˜Nine Perfect Strangersโ€™, alongside Nicole Kidman, Christine Baranski, Dolly De Leon, Murray Bartlett, and Annie Murphy.

Dirty Work by King Princess is the new Carte Blanche Music Wildcard. This implies that it will be prominently displayed at the top of the blog for an entire week.
