Blake Shelton says their new song, ‘Happy Anywhere’, reflects how he’s been feeling with his rocker girlfriend, Gwen Stefani, amid the pandemic.
The cute couple has teamed up for their fourth duet together, ‘Happy Anywhere’, which is to be released on Friday, July 24.
“An Okie boy and a California girl look on paper like an unlikely match, but what matters is she’s a great human being,” Blake says. “She is the most understanding, kind-hearted person I’ve ever met and I learn something from her every day.”
Over the past few months, the couple has been holed up in Blake’s cherished Tishomingo ranch, and they’ve been taking advantage of a little more free time in their schedules.
“The simple pleasure of being together in one place for an extended period of time has been a real gift. We cook, we clean, we ride four-wheelers and we just enjoy being with each other and with family,” he said.
Their down-home music video for “Happy Anywhere” was shot in Oklahoma, and Blake says it’s a peek at their everyday life together.
“There was a camera shooting the things we do every day,” he says. “We make biscuits, fish, sing together, spend time with family… just a day in life!”
Blake and Gwen’s sweet new song marks their fourth time collaborating together, and Blake says having his girlfriend on the song was a no-brainer.
“Nobody But You was a big song for us, but we actually recorded ‘Happy Anywhere’ before that. We were waiting for the right time to release it, and I knew that time was now,” Blake says.
“We’re all still socially distancing, so there’s no better time to be happy anywhere with the person or people you love. It doesn’t matter where in the world you are, as long as you’re with them, you’re happy.”
Soon, the stars will be heading back to Los Angeles to work on the upcoming season of The Voice, premiering this fall on NBC.
“There’s nothing like the in-person camaraderie with the other coaches, and it’s more fun to give them crap in that live setting,” says Blake, who will be facing off against Gwen, John Legend and Kelly Clarkson. “You make a lot of friends on set, and I’m looking forward to getting back to that big extended family.”
