Things get a little wild in the just-released music video for Elle King and Miranda Lambert’s new duet, “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home).”
The retro clip brings the high octane collaboration to life and showcases the pair at a 1980s-style wedding, with King as the bride and Lambert as her maid of honor (King’s real-life fiancé plays the groom).
All bets are off after Lambert’s character spikes the punch, resulting in a wedding party like no other.
Watch it all go down in the clip below.
“Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)” was co-written by Elle King with Martin Johnson, who also produced the track.
“The true story of this song sums up our wild friendship. 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,” King shared in a statement. “Nobody revs me up, kicks my ass on stage, or treats me more like family than Miranda Lambert.”
King went on to explain how she couldn’t imagine singing this song with anyone else.
“Our rowdy reputations proceed us, so who else could sing this song together besides us,” she said. “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.”
“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,” Lambert added. “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.”
Elle King previously collaborated with Dierks Bentley on the track “Different For Girls.” She also toured with Lambert on the Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars Tour and appeared alongside Lambert, Maren Morris, Ashley McBryde, Tenille Townes and Caylee Hammack on the ACM and CMA-nominated “Fooled Around and Fell In Love.”
