Elle King Talks “Fistfights,” “Throwing Elbows” And ‘Come Get Your Wife”
Come Get Your Wife is Elle King’s first full-length country album. The story behind the title is just as colorful as you might expect from the “Ex’s and Oh’s” singer. “In the past ten years of my life, the only fistfights I’ve ever gotten into were at concerts,” says King. “And it was usually sticking up for somebody else. But that’s kind of what happened. You know, people giving elbows.” “In the sense of the title of my album, the elbows I was throwing were just inappropriate jokes,” King admits. “And, you know, somebody shouted over me to my partner, ‘Come get your wife!’ And I was like, ‘Oh, that’s a good album title,’” she laughs. You can check out “Come Get Your Wife,” when it’s released on Friday, January 27th. King will also celebrate the release with an appearance on Good Morning America this Friday (January 27).
