– 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.
