Blake Shelton Announces Next Album About Divorce, Gwen Stefani Romance
Blake Shelton's girlfriend, Gwen Stefani, recently dedicated her latest single, "Make Me Like You," to the country music singer, which talks about their budding romance and now, it appears that the singer will do the same for his upcoming album. Shelton's last album, Bringing Back the Sunshine, was released in 2014 and after his quiet divorce with Miranda Lambert in July of 2015, it may be time for him to release another album, especially since he looks happy and in love with Stefani.
"I mean, it doesn't take, you know, a rocket scientist. If you have followed my career even a little bit in my life, you know what has happened with me in the last, gosh, eight or nine months," Shelton said in an interview with Nancy O'Dell of ETOnline. "It is all on the record."
The "God Gave Me You" singer started dating Stefani after their previous marriages ended with their respective ex-partners, Lambert and Gavin Rossdale. Since then, they were spotted packing on PDAs on various occasions.
"I can put my life experience, whether it's a divorce or my new girlfriend, whatever those experiences are, whatever things that are happening in my life, I have an outlet for them," Shelton said. "I have music. I can write songs, I can sing about it."
The Voice coach revealed that he is releasing a new single "really soon," but the exact date hasn't been announced yet. Although he did not confirm if it will be about Stefani or Lambert, he did reveal that fans will find out very soon.
"New single coming out -- I don't know the exact date. I do, but I am supposed to say I don't know the exact date," said Shelton, according to Inquisitr. "When it comes out, you are going to be like, 'I can't believe he didn't tell me it was going to be that soon!'"
The said album will feature the Oak Ridge Boys. The musician said that he was "honored and happy" to have the group sing on his album and was even excited to surprise his fans about it, but later on discovered that the group has already shared the news on Twitter.
He also added that he is glad that the band is excited to be part of his record as they have talked about it on social media, saying, "If they were that excited to be on my record, then I am glad they are out there talking about it."
