The couple who sing together! Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani dropped their first duet, “Go Ahead and Break My Heart,” from Shelton’s upcoming album, If I’m Honest, on Monday, May 9.
Shelton, 39, voiced his excitement about the new tune via Twitter on Monday morning. “Is it out?!!! Yay!!!” he wrote to a fan who sent the country crooner a link to the track on iTunes.
In the song, Shelton and Stefani, 46, belt out emotional lyrics such as, “You can't tell me that we'll still be friends / And maybe someday we can try again / If you really need a brand new start / Why don't you go ahead and break my heart?”
The musical duo — who met in 2014 as coaches on the set of NBC’s The Voice — will perform the track on tonight's Monday, May 9, episode of the singing reality competition series.
"SOOO…. I'm performing next week on @NBCTheVoice,” Shelton revealed on May 3. “I'm performing with @gwenstefani. We're performing a song off my album we wrote together."
Back in March, Stefani opened up to Refinery29 about how she was able to bond with Shelton over their public breakups — from Gavin Rossdale and Miranda Lambert, respectively — and how it inspired her latest LP, This Is What the Truth Feels Like.
"I think that when you go through what I went through, or what I’m still going through, you think you’re hopeless. You don’t know what’s going to happen,” she told the website. “You panic. It was a really super-unexpected gift to find a friend, somebody who happened to be going through the exact same thing as me, literally mirroring my experience. I don’t think it’s an accident that that happened. It saved me."
