Shelton plans new sounds

Thursday, January 7, 2016 – Blake Shelton hopes to have a new single out this month with a new full-length dropping in May.

Shelton told Lon Shelton in a Country Countdown USA interview that 2015 was the "greatest year of my life." The year also saw him divorce Miranda Lambert.

"I hope to have a new single out in January. I want to get it out there. It's driving me nuts to not be already into that project because it's all I'm thinking about."

"I hope the album can come out in May, and people can be knowing, if they're interested, what I've been going through, the good and bad."

"All the awful things that happened in my personal life (in 2015), but the way the year has ended is also the greatest year in my life," he told Helton.

"I better not talk about that just yet, but sometimes you don't know who's in your life that can save you," he said, an apparent reference to girlfriend Gwen Stefani without naming her. " I found some people in my life that have changed my life forever. Some has been bad, and some that's been pretty good. 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."

Shelton's current single, "Gonna," came out in August 2015.

In an effort to release music more often, he packages five new songs with seven of previously released material that has received considerable airplay and time on the charts. if you're looking for the fresh stuff, this is essentially an EP spearheaded by the Platinum lead single "God's Country. ...
CD review - Texoma Shore Blake Shelton's 11th studio album finds The Voice advisor in a contented, one might even say homey, frame of mind. The opening track and first single "I'll Name the Dogs" sets the tone. It's a rollicking ode to domesticity that manages to make household chore distribution ("You find the spot and I'll find the money / You be the pretty and I'll be the funny") both romantic and amusing. The beat switches to hip-hop on "Money," but the sentiment ...
CD review - Live EP This six-song "Blake Shelton Live EP" seems a little odd. It's not as though Shelton had an especially noteworthy tour to document. Besides, at only six songs long, it's a relatively short document, anyhow. While it may be little more than a post-it note of a project, though, it also packs a powerful punch. You recognize right away the large amount of enthusiasm the act of singing to an audience brings out of Shelton. When compared to the recorded versions of these hits, ...
