Ever since fans first learned about Blake Shelton‘s plans to release a new album, many have wondered what his new songs will be about. After all, a lot has changed in Shelton’s life since he released his last album in 2014. He went through an extremely publicized divorce with fellow country star Miranda Lambert and started dating his fellow Voice coach, Gwen Stefani.
For some time now, fans have been curious to know if Shelton will address his divorce and new relationship on his upcoming album. In a recent interview with ET, Shelton finally revealed that yes, he’s putting all of his cards on the table where his new album is concerned.
“It is all on the the record,” he said.
Shelton also revealed that he will be releasing a new single sometime soon, maybe even earlier than fans expect.
“I don’t know the exact date,” he said, before he clarified himself. “I do, but I am supposed to say I don’t know the exact date…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!‘”
Shelton said that his life experiences make the perfect material for songs, and he’s glad he has music to help him discuss those experiences.
“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,” he said. “I have music. I can write songs, I can sing about it.“
