This past Wednesday, April 8, 2020, 21-year-old alt-pop artist King Princess (born Mikaela Mullaney Straus) graced the NPR Tiny Desk. This Tiny Desk performance was a little bit different though because King Princess actually played for NPR in her own space.
To stay in accordance with the CDC’s social distancing guidelines, NPR has moved its Tiny Desk concerts to the quarantine locations of the artists being featured until further notice.
For her, the performance took place in what she calls, “the quarantine shed” which is in Hawaii and houses all her essentials: guitars, a keyboard and amp. For her look, she went with what we’re all wearing, comfy sweats.
She performed three fan favorites all from her latest album, Cheap Queen:
- “Isabel’s Moment”

In February, she released the deluxe version of her full-length album Cheap Queen which included hits like “Back of a Cab”, “Ohio”, “Ain’t Together” among others.
King Princess was set to start a European tour which has been postponed due to the current situation around the globe.
