Elle King & Miranda Lambert Drop Catchy New Song 'Drunk' - Read Lyrics & Watch the Video!

Elle King and Miranda Lambert have teamed up for a fun new duet called “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)” and you’ve gotta watch the video they released!

The song was co-written by Elle with Martin Johnson, who also produced the track, and the track was recorded before the pandemic started.

“So bartender, take my keys / What do you want from me? / Baby, I’m drunk and I don’t wanna go home / Not staying in to fight / I’m staying out all night / Baby, I’m drunk and I don’t wanna go home,” they sing in the chorus.

This marks Elle and Miranda‘s second collaboration. They also toured together when Elle was a special guest on Miranda‘s 2019 Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars tour.

The singers filmed the music video in January 2021 by following strict COVID protocols. The 80s-inspired wedding video stars Elle as the bride and Miranda as her Maid of Honor. Watch out for a cameo from Elle‘s real-life fiance as the groom!

“The true story of this song sums up our wild friendship,” Elle said in a statement. “Miranda is someone I have looked up to as a songwriter, musician, performer, and human being for a long time. So our tumbleweed snowball story of getting to know each other is the ultimate real deal kinda thing. Nobody revs me up, kicks my ass on stage, or treats me more like family than Miranda Lambert. Our rowdy reputations proceed us, so who else could sing this song together besides us? Crawling out of such a crazy year, still full of so many unknowns, I ultimately couldn’t think of another person I’d rather come out singin’ and swingin’ with than the most badass chick I know. Miranda.”

Miranda added, “I think this fun song was born from our becoming friends over the last couple of years. We are new friends but it really feels like we are old friends and I felt like that immediately when I met her at one of her shows. Since then, we’ve toured together and sang on stage together, hung out and partied together, recorded together, and so much more. This song just feels like the natural transition to the after party.”
