Speaking about the album, Elle King explains: "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's debut album Love Stuff, a sultry, badass mix of rock and roll, blues, and country, with a twinge of pop " featured the breakthrough single 'Ex's & Oh's' which earned her two Grammy nominations and was certified 3 x platinum in Australia and placed #5 on the ARIA Album chart. The track - about leaving behind a string of broken-hearted exes - hit No. 1 on Billboard's "Hot Rock Songs Chart," and topped the AAA, Hot AC, and Alternative Radio charts, leading Elle to become the second female artist in 18 years to reach No. 1 at the latter format. She also featured on Dierks Bentley's Grammy-nominated No. 1 Country Airplay hit 'Different For Girls' , which she also performed with Bentley at the CMA Awards where she took home the "Musical Event of the Year" award.
