Dax feat. Elle King – Dear Alcohol (Remix)

By popular demand, Dax has finally released the highly-anticipated music video for his country music crossover remix, “Dear Alcohol,” featuring Grammy-nominated recording artist Elle King. Directed by Logan Meis, the video is an up-close look at the road to sobriety, a transformative experience that’s freeing for both artist and audience.

“It was amazing to join forces with Elle King on this remix and tackle a problem millions are fighting in silence,” shares Dax. “The impact is touching lives and this visual adds depth to already powerful lyrics.”

As an independent artist, Dax has amassed over half a billion streams to date for the undeniably groundbreaking success of his catalog, which subsequently resulted in his partnership with RECORDS, a division of Sony Music Entertainment. “Dear Alcohol” featuring Elle King is a crooning, emotive track from the buzzing Canadian rapper that showcases his melodic delivery and introspective lyricism.

The shared vulnerability between Dax and Elle amounts to a record that sounds like none other: “As musicians, it’s our job to talk about all sides of life and I commend Dax for addressing this issue,” shares King. “I was honored to join him on this song to help shine a light for so many who are struggling.”

When Dax’s open-verse challenge for his viral song took social media by storm, Elle delivered a verse that revealed her inner world more fully and fearlessly than ever before. King also made history with the No.1 double-Platinum country hit “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home).”

Over the years, Dax has released a pocket of steadily improving, increasingly popular singles. Everything that he does branches beyond the boundaries of playing it safe. However, a closer examination reveals that his immersive storytelling inspires larger conversations about love, personal growth, and everyday struggles.

My life been getting sorta crazy and I don’t wanna think
I look myself right in the mirror and I don’t even blink

Lyrics:

Chorus: Dax
I got wasted ’cause I didn’t wanna deal with myself tonight
My thoughts get drowned until I feel alright
I keep drinkin’ ’til I’m someone I don’t recognize
I got wasted
I got wasted ’cause I didn’t wanna deal with myself tonight
My thoughts get drowned until I feel alright
I keep drinkin’ ’til I’m someone I don’t recognize
I got wasted

Verse 1: Dax
Repeat the cycle every day, I gotta start with a drink
My life been getting sorta crazy and I don’t wanna think
I look myself right in the mirror and I don’t even blink
Then I get angry, take the rest and pour it right in the sink
I know where this road goеs
Alcohol ain’t my friend, but I keep drinkin’ ’cause thesе demons roam
And follow me ’round everywhere I go
It clouds my mind and soul, it turns my heart cold
But I keep drinkin’ ’cause it makes me feel like I’m not alone
I’m havin’ problems, my pride won’t let me reach out
Lookin’ at this bottle, havin’ nothin’ but doubt
Don’t wanna drink, but it keeps comin’ around and around and around

Chorus: Dax
I got wasted ’cause I didn’t wanna deal with myself tonight
My thoughts get drowned until I feel alright
I keep drinkin’ ’til I’m someone I don’t recognize
I got wasted
I got wasted ’cause I didn’t wanna deal with myself tonight
My thoughts get drowned until I feel alright
I keep drinkin’ ’til I’m someone I don’t recognize
I got wasted

Verse 2: Elle King
Another mornin’ when my memory’s wavy
Don’t hate me, I got you faded again
I try to fight it, but the loneliness breaks me
Can you blame me? The bottle’s been my friend
It’s gotta be sadistic, or maybe masochistic
Every night I just stay twisted ’cause the only ones that listen
Is that sativa and the Patrón and Casamigos
I didn’t mean to, but I need to

Chorus: Elle King
I got wasted ’cause I didn’t wanna deal with myself tonight
My thoughts get drowned until I feel alright
I keep drinkin’ ’til I’m someone I don’t recognize
I got wasted
I got wasted ’cause I didn’t wanna deal with myself tonight
My thoughts get drowned until I feel alright
I keep drinkin’ ’til I’m someone I don’t recognize
I got wasted

Outro: Elle King
I got wasted
