Gwen Stefani’s admitted that her new album, This Is What the Truth Feels Like, addresses her divorce from Gavin Rossdale and healing after heartbreak. However, it seems like Stefani’s new boyfriend, Blake Shelton, is taking a different approach to writing his forthcoming album and talking about his divorce from Miranda Lambert.
“It’s not like there’s all these juicy details [in the record], but [country music] lends itself to emotions and things that you go through when you go through a divorce and, more so, the getting over that and moving on and finding someone else,” Shelton said during an exclusive interview airing Friday on CMT After MidNite.
Hmm… it sounds like Shelton’s new music will be more about finding and moving on to Stefani than his fallout with Lambert.
The Voice coach also said that he’s “super, super proud of” his new music.
“The last year and a half of my life has literally blown up in my face,” Blake said. “That’s OK because I’m a country singer, and I at least get to take all that and put it into music… [I] couldn’t be happier with the way ‘Came Here to Forget’ has [taken] off.”
“Came Here to Forget” is the debut single off Shelton’s forthcoming album, If I’m Honest, which drops May 20. Some of the track’s lyrics include, “Girl getting over him and I’m getting over her/The eyes have it made, ain’t gotta say a word/Misery loves company, that’s why it’s you and me.”
If that song isn’t about Shelton and Stefani’s romance, we don’t know what is!
Stefani’s This Is What the Truth Feels Like, featuring singles “Used to Love You” and “Make Me Like You,” drops Friday, March 18.
