Blake Shelton & Gwen Stefani Shared the Cutest Couple Pic to Announce Their New Song
The lovebirds are joining forces yet again for a lovely duet.
On February 5, Stefani officially announced the name of her upcoming single with her husband, Shelton: ''Purple Irises.'' She revealed the news to fans by sharing a scenic photo of herself lounging in a retro style living room wearing a denim jumpsuit, while Shelton strums a gitar and smiles like the proud cowboy he is. The single is dropping February 9, 2024.

Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani's new song, "'Purple Irises": what to know
Stefani dropped hints to fans about the upcoming tune on January 29 when she shared an artsy polaroid of herself and Shelton placed in front of some — you guessed it — purple irises to Instagram. She then posted the same bouquet of flowers the next day placed next to a handwritten love note that Shelton had given her. Symbolism much?
The title ''Purple Irises'' is totally fitting to the theme of their love life, as the two have a garden together that they love tending to.

Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton's songwriting adventures
This song certainly won't be the first collab between Stefani and Shelton.They've recorded and performed a number of gorgeous duets together: ''Go Ahead and Break My Heart'' was released off Shelton's 2016 album If I'm Honest; ''You Make it Feel Like Christmas'' is a song off of Stefani's 2017 album of the same name; and ''No Body But You'' and ''Happy Anywhere'' were both released in 2020. Most recently, Stefani and Shelton paid tribute to The Judds with a heartfelt cover of the country tune ''Love Is Alive.'' Listen to it here.
Stefani and Shelton are two creative peas in a pod. In an October 2023 interview with Variety, Stefani gave some insight into the songwriting process between herself and and her husband. In fact, she revealed that she and Shelton wrote ''Go Ahead and Break My Heart'' together through text messages a month into their relationship.
“We wrote a song together probably the first month we started talking or hanging out,” she told the outlet. “It was when we were like, ‘This is not gonna happen. What are we doing? We’re insane. We’re both broken. We’ve got to figure our lives out.’ He wrote this verse and sent it to me: ‘Help me finish this song.’ I wrote a verse and sent it back to him. We were just basically texting at that point. We wrote this song, and I went in and sang on it.”
