After months of being told his new album would be his most personal yet, fans are finally getting their first taste of what Blake Shelton has been teasing with the release of his new single Came Here To Forget.
If you’ve been curious about how seemingly opposites Blake and girlfriend Gwen Stefani first came together, this song may give you a peek into how it happened. With the song telling the story of a man and woman in a bar giving each other support during an extra tough time and with lyrics such as “make the best of the worst of it,” and “gettin’ even with her and with him,” the song seems to be a confession of sorts.
Blake confirmed as much previously, saying, “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. That’s why I’m so excited about this particular song.”
Came Here To Forget is the first single off Blake’s upcoming 12th studio album. Take a listen and let us know what you think.
Oh, and on a side note, is it just me or is the picture they used for the single like the sexiest Blake picture ever? Just sayin’.
