"Drinking from the Bottle" is a song by Scottish DJ and producer Calvin Harris from his third studio album, 18 Months. The song features English rapper Tinie Tempah. The song was released as a single on 27 January 2013. It has peaked at number five on the UK Singles Chart.

Music video[edit]

A lyric video to accompany the release of "Drinking from the Bottle" was first released onto YouTube on 2 December 2012 at a total length of four minutes and one second. The official video was uploaded to Harris's YouTube's account on 21 December, after being filmed in the first week of December 2012.[1]

The video opens with actor Brad Dourif, as The Devil, speaking to his friend "Patrick" (played by Vader Vader lead singer, Pat-Ric McCaffery, who is dressed as a wizard), talking about how he had sex with Joan of Arc in 1430, just a few months before her burning at the stake. The rest of the video features Harris and Tempah in a dark room with scantily-clad women, with Harris sitting inside a car and Tempah outside it. There are also scenes of drinking, drugs, violence, arson, sex, and nudity, as well as Harris and Tempah meeting up with the devil.

Critical reception[edit]

Robert Copsey of Digital Spy gave the song three out of five stars and wrote, "With lyrics about necking booze from buckets with sparklers, name-checking Rihanna, the Kardashians and, erm, Danny DeVito as well as a ravey breakdown that you could set your watch to, they've ticked all the necessary boxes for an easy chart hit. 'I know this crazy life can be a bitter pill to swallow,' he continues, prompting our weary response: 'Go on then, one last time won't hurt us... right?'."[2]

Inspiration for the song is said to come from friend Mad Skillz Tommy Schillz, an American TV/Film producer, who is regularly seen at clubs drinking a variety of hard alcohols straight out of the bottle.
