Princess Chelsea is the whimsical indie pop/electronic solo project of Auckland, New Zealand-based musician and producer Chelsea Nikkel. A classically trained pianist, Nikkel lent her talents to self-professed “circus punk” act Teen Wolf in the mid-2000s, and later in the touring lineup of indie pop outfit the Brunettes. Her full-length debut as Princess Chelsea, Lil’ Golden Book, is a collection of songs about her youth presented with innocent melodies and Baroque arrangements to create a musical fairy tale.
Lil' Golden book was initially released on New Zealand label, Lil' Chief Records digitally and on CD and LP formats on 3 May 2011. The first vinyl pressing of Lil' Golden Book was pressed on gold coloured vinyl and limited to 300 copies, and the second pressing was pressed on pink coloured vinyl.
A 2012 European tour edition of The Cigarette Duet was pressed on blue 7 inch vinyl in May 2012.
