No “Misery” here! Gwen Stefani and her boyfriend, Blake Shelton, have been using their past heartbreak and newfound love to put out some telling new tunes. Stefani’s latest single, “Misery,” was released on Thursday evening, ahead of her upcoming album, This Is What the Truth Feels Like, which drops on March 18.
“You’re like drugs to me/I’m so into you totally,” Stefani sings in the new song. “So put me out of my misery/Hurry up, come see me/ Enough, enough of this suffering.”
“It doesn’t take a rocket scientist if you follow my career a little bit or my life, you know what’s happened with me in the last 8 or 9 months,” Shelton previously told ET . “It’s all on there. It’s all on the record… I can put my life experiences whether it’s my divorce or my new girlfriend… I have an outlet for them.”
Less than 24 hours after the release of “Misery,” the song was featured on iTunes “Hot Tracks” list, and Shelton is currently at No. 4 on the iTunes chart for “Came Here to Forget.”
