ELLE KING BRIDGES THE GAP BETWEEN EDGE AND TWANG IN NEW
TRACK, “OUT YONDER”
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Today, global entertainer Elle King debuted her banjo-laced new track that saunters with sass, “Out Yonder.” Listen here.
The new tune packs a punch, preaching one message: to leave the drama out yonder. “Out Yonder” features cleverly amusing lyrics that are characteristic of Elle’s catalog, tempered with just the right amount of honky-tonk attitude.
“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!’” Elle said. “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.”
“Out Yonder” arrives on the heels of her Video of the Year win at the 57th ACM Awards for “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)” with Miranda Lambert, which marks the pairs second joint win, previously taking home Music Event of the Year in 2020 for “Fooled Around and Fell In Love.” The Top 5 smash hit is now Platinum certified and has amassed over 215 million on-demand streams. With the new track, Elle foreshadows a larger project in the works.
Fans can catch Elle performing “Out Yonder” on her headline Drunk and I Don’t Wanna Go Home Tour, as she hits nine major cities through the end of the month including San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas. She’s also gearing up for her opening stint on Chris Stapleton’s All American Roadshow tour, with dates in Canada kicking off next month. For tickets and additional details, visit ElleKing.com.

“Elle King is a little bit country, a little bit rock n’ roll, but ultimately, she’s punk as fuck.”– Rolling Stone
“…King churned the clotted cream of punkish country, raw R&B, crotchety rock and deep blues into rich, buttery musical drama…(she) belted, crooned, purred, sauntered and swaggered her way through a tautly rocking set…one thing became very clear: nearly every song was equally contagious, catty-cool, and hit-worthy.”– Variety
