King Princess Shares Cover of Steely Dan's 'Dirty Work'

King Princess (real name: Mikaela Straus) has shared a new cover of Steely Dan’s Can’t Buy a Thrill classic “Dirty Work.”

The cover was created with the help of producers Robert Linvill and Slimdan. King Princess' rendition of the classic 70s tune was recorded for the new season of the show Hacks. Her cover appears at the end of this season’s second episode. It retains the same soulfulness as the original Steely Dan tune, but features King Princess' softer, wispier vocals instead.

Hacks is hilarious and so is my good bud, Hannah Einbinder,” King Princess shared in a statement. “She asked me to sing ‘Dirty Work’ and it was a no brainer. Everyone should watch this show, it’s tremendously iconic.”

As for other news, Mikaela Strauss released her second King Princess studio album, Hold On Baby, in July 2022. She's set to make her acting debut in Season 2 of Nine Perfect Strangers, with her third studio album in the works.
