Elle King contemplates a different way of life in the tongue-and-cheek “Try Jesus”Fri, October 21, 2022 by ABC NewsSHARE NOW ABC/Connie ChornukHomeMusicCountryElle King contemplates a different way of life in the tongue-and-cheek “Try Jesus”Elle King is continuing to roll out new tracks from her forthcoming country album, Come Get Your Wife, and the singer proves she’ll try anything once — or twice — in new song “Try Jesus.”“‘Try Jesus’ came at a time I was trying to give my life over to something greater — and you can feel it,” Elle says. The song recounts a series of dud relationships, leading her to believe after all the guys she’s tried to fall in love with that perhaps she should “Try Jesus.”The music video for the song — which finds Elle shopping at the Dollar Mart Plus, with surprising results — has some aesthetics in common with the TV series The Righteous Gemstones, and for good reason: it was directed by actor Edi Patterson, who plays Judy Gemstone on the show.The quirky clip stars Elle not only as herself, but as a series of no-good guys who try — and fail — to steal her heart. Finally she finds happiness, literally, with the help of a store clerk. His name? Jesus, of course.Elle’s full-length country debut is set to drop on January 27. It’s available for preorder now.Copyright © 2022, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.
