Get it HERE via Republic Records.
Of the new tune, he commented, “‘The King’ is a song I wrote about this massive crush I had on someone who just wouldn’t admit they liked me back. In my case, this person would always call me up late at night, talk about me constantly to their friends, and even show up at my house unannounced. So, I wrote this song as a last straw; as a ‘Hey, you’re not fooling anyone, we’re perfect for each other, and you should choose me.’”
