Blake Shelton’s Next Album Will Detail His Divorce
Blake Shelton is holding nothing back on his next album.
“I’ve written more than I’ve written in 15 years, for obvious reasons — all the awful things that have happened in my personal life — but the way the year ended is also the greatest of my life,” Shelton tells Country Countdown USA.
This year will mark the release of Shelton's tenth studio album. While there's no title or release date scheduled yet, he says he hopes a new single will be released later this month with the entire album available in May.
“I want to get it out there,” he says. “It’s driving me nuts to not be already into that project because it’s all I’m thinking about.”
While 2015 was no doubt a difficult year for the singer, who divorced Miranda Lambert after four years of marriage in July, he says that he has since found people who have come to change his life for the better.
“Sometimes you don’t know who’s in your life that can save you,” Shelton continues. “I found some people in my life that have changed my life forever.”
He adds: “I’m doing what I’m supposed to do, and that’s put all I’ve gone through and put it into music, and I never felt more connected to a record before. When people hear this record, they may not know what happened to me, but they’re gonna know how I felt about it. And that’s exciting for me, to just lay it out there for people."
