Just days after their show-stooping ACM Awards live performance debut of “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home),” Elle King and Miranda Lambert surprised fans with the release of the “Goldhouse Remix” of the track.
Out now, the remixed version takes the high-octane collaboration to the next level with dance-ready beats. Listen to the just-released remix below.
“Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)” was co-written by Elle King with Martin Johnson, who also produced the track. The superstars dropped the original version of the song in late February.
“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 the 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.”
