With the release of Diplo’s deluxe version of his album Snake Oil on Friday, December 18th, came his new song with ERNEST, “Bottle’s Bout Dead”.
While the original album, released in May, was Diplo’s debut country album, it was largely a crossover project. Diplo worked with artists from various musical genres and backgrounds including Thomas Rhett, Young Thug, Morgan Wallen, Cam, Blanco Brown, Zac Brown, Danielle Bradberry, Noah Cyrus, Julia Michaels, and Jonas Brothers. In addition to the already star-studded tracklist, the deluxe version now includes songs with ERNEST (“Bottle’s Bout Dead”) and Leon Bridges (“Horizon”).
“Bottle’s Bout Dead” is a metaphor for a relationship that is knowingly nearing its end. Comparing the relationship to a drink at the end of the night, it is as if you know the night is basically over, you just want to finish the last few sips before you call it quits.
“‘Cause this bottles ‘bout dead, just a couple more drops / that open sign’s on, but it’s ‘bout to turn off / this watered-down dream in the bottom of a glass / is all the proof we need, some things don’t last ”
Among a collection of songs that bounce back and forth from traditional country, this song is one of the more direct country songs on the album. Its unique and eclectic arrangement is perfect for a country fan that wants a more modern sound or for music fans in general that want a taste of country music’s incredible songwriting and vocals.
The album’s deluxe release with two additional songs should be able to hold fans over for a little longer as they await the release of Diplo’s ‘Chapter 2’ Album.
