Elle King Releases New Album “Come Get Your Wife”: Streaming
American singer-songwriter Elle King released her third studio album “Come Get Your Wife” on January 27, 2023.
The album comprises 13-track, produced by Ross Copperman and Elle King, featuring guest appearances from Miranda Lambert, and Dierks Bentley.
On the album, Elle King focuses on country music. Elle King said, “Each track comes from influences of all genres, and I now know country music is where I belong. I have put all of my energy and love into this album.”
She continued, “There’s something about how you put the pieces together. This whole album is a crazy quilt of all sorts of moments and things that might not seem to go together, but because they’re me, they do. It’s very Southern Ohio, very who we are – and very much a lot of people who are just like me, because I know they’re out there.”
She told Apple Music about country music, “Sometimes, you don’t always know what you want or need that will better your life. I didn’t know that country was going to be my everything and that I was going to find this amazing joy and new, wonderful chapter, all through country.”
- Also she told American Songwriter, “Country fans are very different than the other fans that I had experienced. They all reminded me of my brother, my sister, my family, my cousins, my nephews, my nieces. I felt this connection that felt like home.”
She shared on social media about the album title, “Remember that one time I was beating some asshole at a game and he yelled, “Come get your wife!” to my partner!?!? And I’m not even married! Lol. Thanks for the album title, babe 😉”
Elle King explained of some tracks for the album.
“I miss my grandmother a lot. She really was, I don’t know, just the biggest part of our family. It’s hard to say that my family’s not great without her; that’s not true. We just miss her. And so, I think of her, and it’s like a love letter to her and my family, and I feel her when I’m down there. That was just a really beautiful song, and it was also more of me opening myself up ’cause I never really talked about Ohio or my childhood. I was always really protective over it. And now I feel so much more comfortable to share. And if anybody is wondering why I’m in country now, or what country is to me, they can listen to the first song on the record and hear about my family and where I come from. And I thought it was just a good introduction to the story I was telling on the record.”
“‘Try Jesus’ is the perfect example of where, if you just take it at face value, it’s funny. Because ultimately, I think that we are magnets, and every relationship is a mirror. And so, I look back at my relationships, whether they were toxic for me or are toxic for them—what was it in my life that made me vulnerable or open or think that that’s what I needed to be happy or feel loved?”
“I think I knew I was having a boy. Everybody was like, ‘It’s a girl, it’s a girl, it’s a girl.’ And then we just knew that if it was a boy, his name was going to be Lucky. And I don’t know, it just clicked. And it makes sense because we got lucky when he came into our lives and when we had him. This whole last year, I felt a lot of gratitude, and I felt people really rally around me and the baby and our family. Touring people, who tour with kids, they reached out and were just so loving. And I just felt like it was such a year of gratitude. So, it was nice to sum that up in a song. And Lucky knows that that song’s about him.”
“Ella Langley, she’s this 22-year-old girl, and she has more confidence in one strand of hair than I could not even dream of having, even by the time I’m 80. And she is such a joy. And she helped me write most of the record. Her, Bobby Hamrick, and Matt McKinney, they wrote ‘Out Yonder’ and that was one of the first songs that I put out after ‘Drunk.’ I felt like that song was written for me, about me. And we all got together, and we wrote a majority of the record. On day two, I got on the bus because they came out on the road with me, and she had to explain it to me multiple times. And the same day, we wrote ‘Lucky’ right after that.”
“I got the call asking if I would do it the day we announced the record. So, it kind of seems fitting and perfect now that I’m looking back. I was listening, laying on the rug in our new, cute little house where we listen to records, and I just put headphones on, and I listen to that song, and it’s just so beautiful. And I had never really accepted or even been open to outside writers because I’ve always felt like I had to control everything. But now I understand that I love doing covers. And so, it’s interesting that I could receive a song and be given the gift of an experience of making it my own. And that’s what Tyler Childers did with me. He was like, ‘Have it. You’re the only one that I will let have it.’ And it was beautiful.”
“Drunk (And I Don't Wanna Go Home)” with Miranda Lambert
“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. Nobody revs me up, kicks my ass on stage, or treats me more like family than Miranda Lambert.”
“I am so excited to share all of the creative twists and turns the last couple of years have brought me! Starting with one of my absolute favorites, 'Out Yonder!' This little ball of fire has been just burnin' me up! I hope you all stomp and kick and dance to it like I have been.”
“Worth A Shot” featuring Dierks Bentley
“Dierks took a chance and brought me into the country world. I couldn't make my own country record, which is my favorite album I've ever made, without including the person who gave me a seat at the table. To be honest, Dierks and I just have fun no matter what we do, especially singing and performing great songs. This song is all about trying to get back to the beginning of something, and so it's only right that we go back to where it all started for me.”
