When Blake Shelton told us his new single was coming "really soon,"
he meant it.
The country singer will release the first single from his next album, "Came Here to Forget," on March 8. "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," Shelton revealed in a press release. "That's why I'm so excited about this particular song."
The track -- which is an "intimate snapshot" of a couple's encounter at a bar -- is the first music Shelton has released since splitting with Miranda Lambert in July and beginning a romance with Gwen Stefani.
"It is all on the record," the 39-year-old GRAMMY nominee exclusively told ET
of recording this album. "I can put my life experience, whether it's a divorce or my new girlfriend, whatever those experiences are, whatever things that are happening in my life, I have an outlet for them. I have music."
That new girlfriend, fellow Voice coach Stefani, has already written a track about Shelton -- her single, "Make Me Like You."
"I was free before I met you / I was broken but free / All alone in the clear view, but now you are all I see," the pop star sings on the track. Watch Stefani adorably admit that Shelton inspired the track in the video below.
