Elle King’s sophomore album now has a title and a release date: Shake the Spirit will be out October 19.
She tweeted, “This record was a crazy, beautiful, enlightening, scary process and I can’t wait for you all to hear it and feel it within you.”
Elle says of the album title,, “I decided to call it Shake The Spirit because I was shaken to the core over the last year and a half. I was literally talking to ghosts. But making the album not only changed my life, it saved my life. It’s like when you see somebody who is struggling, you want to shake them. Putting this record out is like shaking myself awake.”
Elle has also released a trailer for the album, featuring a voiceover where she explains how what she’s been through — including a secret marriage and divorce — made her feel.
