OMG, Blake Shelton’s new single is finally here and we can’t stop listening! ‘Came Here to Forget’ is TOTALLY about Gwen Stefani and gives us a whole new insight into the beginning of their relationship. Listen, here!
Blake Shelton, 39, delivered his newest single “Came Here to Forget” to the world today, March 7, and the uber-personal song about his girlfriend, Gwen Stefani, 46, is so epic. This is the first new music we’ve heard from the country superstar in 18 months, and we want more!
“Came Here to Forget” is probably the most emotional song we’ve ever heard from Blake, and it has us super excited for his upcoming album. The new song, written by Craig Wiseman and Deric Ruttan, is Blake’s most personal tune yet! “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 revealed in a release. “That’s why I’m so excited about this particular song.” YOU CAN BUY THE NEW JAM RIGHT HERE.
Blake lets us in on the very beginning of his torrid love affair with Gwen, saying “You’re getting over him, and I’m getting over her, ain’t gotta say a word.” This makes it obvious that they bonded while trying to heal from their respective divorces. “That’s why it’s you and me, buying each other drinks back at the bar as thick as thieves. Doing our best to make the best of the worst of it.” So interesting, this is the first he’s really talked about his divorce or the beginning of his and Gwen’s relationship. Stream Blake’s music, here.
Of course, Gwen and Blake got to know each other on set of The Voice rather than in a bar, but the song is inspired by their relationship nonetheless. We are so excited that Gwen and Blake are releasing music around the same time — Gwen’s single, “Make Me Like You”, is still fresh in our minds, and of course we love that it’s about Blake. The hottest couple in music just keeps winning all around! To hear more about Gwen and Blake, head over to iTunes and download the latest HollywoodLife podcast for free!
