Shelton’s Fans Have A Lot To Be Excited About Blake Reveals
Title and Artwork of Upcoming 11th Studio Album ‘Texoma Shore’
Earlier this morning, girlfriend Gwen Stefani revealed the title and artwork of her upcoming Christmas album along with a sample of the title track, “You Make It Feel Like Christmas,” which features vocals from Blake. About 2 hours later, Blake posted the cover art and title of his upcoming 11th studio album, Texoma Shore.
“Lake Texoma has always been a place of great memories, new and old,” said Blake in a statement. “I literally recorded this album on its shore so it’s full circle for me to take the love of this place and my love of country music.
“When you listen to the record, it will go from something traditional to something that will make your head spin back to something even more traditional. That’s just what you can expect from one of my albums. At this point in my career, it’s always good for me to try something different, with different sounds, and I think you’ll hear hints of that on this record. I’ve explored about every part of country music you can explore and it seems like I always keep coming back to my roots, which is traditional country music. I love great songs and there are so many talented writers in Nashville, but I do have a song on the album that I wrote and I’m very proud of it.”
Fans following Blake on Twitter were not completely surprised by the news. On Sept. 20, Blake teased that he had something to share and posted four hints about the forthcoming announcement.
The new album, Texoma Shore, will be released on Nov. 3 and will be available for pre-order on Friday (Sept. 22).
