Blake Shelton’s feeling about his divorce from Miranda Lambert and romance with Gwen Stefani will reflect in his upcoming album, “The Voice” coach said during his recent interview with Entertainment Tonight reported. Shelton’s interview comes just days after he and Stefani made their red carpet debut together at the Vanity Fair Oscars party Sunday.
“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 told ET Online’s Nancy O'Dell. “It is all on the record.”
“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 reportedly said. “I have music. I can write songs, I can sing about it.”
Last month, Stefani had confirmed that her latest single, “Make Me Like You,” is about her boyfriend Shelton. In his latest interview, Shelton revealed that a new single will be coming out “really soon,” but did not mention any specific date.
While teasing the release date for the new single, Shelton reportedly said: “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 only thing so far confirmed about Shelton's upcoming album is that it will feature an appearance from Country Music Hall of Famers, the Oak Ridge Boys.
“In my mind, when I had the Oak Ridge Boys come and sing on my album -- which, I could not be more honored and happy, everything that you can be, it's the Oak Ridge Boys -- so I am thinking, ‘Man, this is going to be a perfect secret,’” Shelton said, according to ET Online. “‘Nobody is ever going to know until this album comes out.’ And they came and sang and five minutes later, I looked on Twitter like, ‘Oh, they are telling everybody on Twitter right now!’”
“What are you going to say, man? It's the Oak Ridge Boys! If they were that excited to be on my record, then I am glad they are out there talking about it,” he reportedly. “It's their world, let them do what they're doing.”
Not only did Shelton talk about his upcoming album, he also spoke about his gift to Stefani.
The “Sangria” singer told ET Online that he had gifted a horse to Stefani. Last month, Stefani had gushed over her “best gift ever,” a horse named Halo, but did not mention who was it gifted by, despite reports speculating the person to be Shelton.
Shelton and Stefani announced their relationship in November last year. Dating rumors had surfaced since the two stars came close to each other during “The Voice” Season 9. Reports had claimed that Shelton and Stefani were trying to help each other cope with their respective divorces.
