Watch: King Princess Performs “Let Us Die” on ‘Fallon’

American singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, Mikaela Mullaney Straus, also known as, King Princess, shared her single, “Let Us Die,” on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday.

The recording is featured on her sophomore album, Hold On Baby, and has percussion from the late Taylor Hawkins. During the high octane performance, the King Princess and her ensemble paid homage to Hawkins through the drum kit, which had “Taylor” written in white text on the kick drum. 

King Princess shared a social media about the experience of working with Hawkins on the record, stating, “Mark [Ronson] suggested that Taylor should play on ‘Let Us Die,’ and I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. Taylor wasn’t only down to play one song, but he was also the most encouraging and wonderful presence during that session. I started sobbing at one point, and Mark couldn’t stop smiling. I have never felt so lucky. Taylor made this song what it is.”
