Blake Shelton Drops Breakup Drinking Song 'Came Here To Forget'
Blake Shelton just dropped his first tune since his divorce from Miranda Lambert last summer, and for those that like to read into lyrics, well, there's plenty to pore over here.
In "Came Here to Forget," Shelton sings, "Girl getting over him and I'm getting over her / The eyes have it made, ain't gotta say a word / Misery loves company, that's why it's you and me/ Buying each other drinks/ back in the bar thick as thieves."
Rumored girlfriend Gwen Stefani likes what she's hearing:
With references to checking your phone for an ex text, drinking (natch), and "keeping it lit," the tune will certainly ring true to anyone who's gone through painful heartbreak. Listen below.
Shelton's last LP was 2014's Bringing Back the Sunshine, which featured the hits "Neon Light", "Lonely Tonight," "Sangria." and "Gonna." A release date for a forthcoming album has not yet been announced.
