Princess Goes Announce New Album, ‘Come of Age’

Following a mysterious social media campaign, Princess Goes (shortened now from Princess Goes to the Butterfly Museum) has announced a brand new album, to be released September 15th, 2023. The album is titled Come of Age, and the first single, “Shimmer” is out now.

Princess Goes is comprised of lead singer Michael C. Hall (Dexter, Six-Feet-Under, Lazarus), drummer Peter Yanowitz (The Wallflowers, Morningwood), and keyboardist Matt Katz-Bohen (Blondie). The trio met while performing together on Broadway in Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

The avant-indie rock band has an electronic sound and has described their own music as “kaleidoscopic sound weather.” However, they’ve stated they don’t like to place their work into any one particular genre.

In regard to the new single, the band stated, “If ‘Shimmer’ sounds like it was written in a fever dream it’s because it basically was. The chord progression originated from a simple bass line and floor tom beat and it evolved from there, building on its own momentum, like an argument that is heating up.”

The band said that in the song, “the lyrics slip out like a secret, like something from the subconscious, with absolutely no regard (or use) for verses or choruses, instead they seem to be mostly concerned with conveying this very human need to be heard.”

Princess Goes also announced an NYC album release show which will take place at Elsewhere on September 20, 2023. Tickets go on sale this Friday, July 14th. Then, the band will go on tour in the EU and UK this fall.
