Stefani confirmed it via social media this week by posting a photo of the track list on the back of Shelton’s upcoming album, If I’m Honest, which is set to be released on May 20. One of the tracks features Stefani, revealing that the two have made it official — finally! — and given fans of their relationship the song that many have been hoping for.
Stefani posted the photo to her Twitter account, along with the caption “Look what I found lying round the house!” and a string of emojis and hashtags: “#ispymyname #goaheadandbreakmyheart @blakeshelton #eeeekkkk! #crazy!”
The surprising thing about their duet, however, is its super depressing title: “Go Ahead and Break My Heart.” Um, we get that they’re both recently divorced, but shouldn’t the song that celebrates their new love be a little more upbeat than that?
That is, unless they’re singing about their respective exes, but that just sounds like they’re living in the past, still dwelling on their old relationships instead of their new one. They should definitely release that track before the album drops, because we have so many questions that just can’t wait.
Shelton has already released one single from the upcoming album called “Came Here to Forget,” and it’s definitely an angsty post-divorce song. And Stefani, who’s hitting the road this summer to tour her new album with Eve, was on The Voice Tuesday night to sing her new single, titled “Misery.” Is it just us, or are these two in serious need of some happiness? Someone get Blake and Gwen some puppies, stat.
