It sounds like Blake Shelton is singing about his current romance with Gwen Stefani and his break-up with Miranda Lambert in his new single.
Shelton dropped his brand new track, “Came Here To Forget,” which you can hear below, on March 7, where Blake appears to be detailing the start of his new love with Gwen Stefani in some very candid lyrics.
According to Taste of Country, Shelton sings about the start of a new romance for two individuals who appear to have gone through big break-ups in his personal new track, which opens with the following lyrics.
“Girl you gettin’ over him, and I’m gettin’ over her / The eyes have it made, ain’t gotta say a word / Misery loves company, that’s why it’s you and me / Buying each other drinks, back at the bar as thick as thieves / Stealing these little sips, doing the best to make the best of the worst of it.”
Though Blake is so far staying tight-lipped on the inspiration for his newest hit, written by Craig Wiseman and Deric Ruttan, the lyrics could easily relate to Shelton and Stefani’s new relationship and how the new couple moved on following their respective divorces from their former spouses, Miranda Lambert and Gavin Rossdale.
Though Shelton hasn’t explicitly clarified the song details how he and Stefani got together, Blake did claim last week that “Came Here To Forget” was “a direct look into [his] life” and even revealed that it was one of the most personal songs he’s ever released, according to Hollywood Life.
“I’ve had a lot of music over the years but I don’t think I’ve ever had a song before that’s such a direct look into my life,” Blake previously revealed of the new song, adding, “that’s why I’m so excited about this particular song.”
Blake also got candid about his new music in an interview with Entertainment Tonight last week, where he confessed that fans can expect to hear a whole lot of personal songs on his upcoming ninth studio album (Shelton’s tenth including his 2012 release, Cheers, It’s Christmas).
“I mean, it doesn’t take, you know, a rocket scientist,” Shelton admitted when asked if he’d be singing about the recent relationship changes in his life over the past few months. “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 … It is all on the record,” Shelton said.
Blake also confirmed in the candid new interview that those personal songs will in fact more than likely reference his past and present romances with both Gwen Stefani and Miranda Lambert.
“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,” Blake continued to Entertainment Tonight of his as yet untitled new album last week. “I have an outlet for them. I have music. I can write songs, I can sing about it,” Blake said.
But he’s not just singing about Gwen on his new album as, according to People, Blake Shelton’s upcoming release also features a new duet with his new lady love.
A source revealed to the site that Gwen and Blake have actually teamed-up for a duet that’s set to be featured on Shelton’s new album and added that the loved-up pair have been “very busy in the studio” together in recent weeks.
“They seem very supportive of each other’s careers,” the source added of Shelton and Stefani, confessing that the two “share a passion for music.”
The site first revealed that Gwen and Blake had teamed-up on new music when they first revealed that they were a couple back in November, when People confirmed that Stefani and Shelton had written a “country ballad” together.
“It’s amazing how good she sounds on a pretty country song … And it sure is good to hear Blake singing real country again,” a source revealed, adding Gwen and Blake’s new song is about “telling a lover to leave the relationship if that is what they truly want.”
