Brantley Gilbert and Ashley Cooke joined forces to deliver a new duet, “Over When We’re Sober,” due on Friday (June 21). iHeartRadio listeners, however, can catch the collaboration’s world premiere on all iHeartCountry stations one day early, on Thursday (June 20).

Gilbert announced “Over When We’re Sober” on his social media pages earlier this month, following a few sneak peeks and prompting his followers to guess his duet partner. The song marks Gilbert’s latest release since “Off The Rails” earlier this year. Cooke, who released her 24-track debut album shot in the dark in July 2023, hinted at collaborations on the way when she caught up with iHeartCountry at the 59th ACM Awards.

“I loved the song from the minute we wrote it,” Gilbert said in a statement of “Over When We’re Sober.” “When it came time to find a collaborator, my producer Brock Berryhill suggested Ashley. I was so impressed with her writing and her voice. She’d just released a 24-track album – you don’t see many people doing that these days – and I thought that also speaks to her work ethic. It’s a special song, and I’m so thankful that she agreed to join me on it.”

The duet is the latest track to release from Gilbert’s forthcoming, seventh studio album, which he has been working on for the past two years. Gilbert wrote “Over When We’re Sober” with Jelly Roll, Berryhill and Justin Wilson. It's one of “many” collaborations on the album, per a press release announcing the single.

“When Brantley called me about this song, I listened to the demo and it was an immediate ‘yes,’” Cooke said. “I’ve been a fan for truly so long - in fact, my Christmas present from a college boyfriend one year was a road trip to Atlanta just to see BG’s show. It’s such an honor to get to be on a song with someone I’ve admired for so long. Not to mention, one of the realest, funniest, most talented guys I’ve met on this journey so far. So thankful BG wanted me on this one!”
