King is the second studio album by American alternative rock band Belly, released on February 13, 1995. Although the members had tightened their focus and polished their hook-laden songs, King and its singles did not meet label expectations in the grunge-friendly atmosphere of 1995, and the band broke up shortly after it was released

By developing a flair for tight, melodic hooks on Star, Tanya Donelly unexpectedly achieved the crossover success with Belly that eluded her with the Throwing Muses and the Breeders. Evidently inspired by such success and eager to prove that Belly was a full-fledged band, not just a solo project, Donelly and company made a bid for stardom with their second album, King.
Compromise may have shrunk the band’s fanbase at the time, but it left behind a thought-provoking, near-perfect pop album. I was, fittingly, drunk the first time I heard Belly’s King. You want to know why I can’t sleep/Unless I got a bellyful of wine, Tanya Donelly sang on Untitled & Unsung. I’m drunk and the world is wild, she explained as the track slowly faded away. At the peak of the alt-rock boom, the little band (headed by former Throwing Muses and Breeders member Donelly) wormed its way into public consciousness with the hit Feed the Tree, a track from their gold-selling debut Star.
