Don’t speak, just listen! Gwen Stefani released her new song “Misery” on Thursday, March 10 — and it’s as catchy as ever.
“I got so used to being ’round you boy / I’m trying not to care, but where’d you go? / I’m doing my best to be sensible / I’m trying not to care,” she sings. “You’re like drugs, you’re like drugs to me / I’m so into you totally.”
“Misery” is featured on Stefani’s upcoming third solo album, This Is What the Truth Feels Like, which is set to drop on March 18. The tracks are about both her split from ex-husband Gavin Rossdale and new boyfriend Blake Shelton — but “Misery” is presumably about the country superstar.
Us Weekly exclusively confirmed in November 2015 that the Voice judges were an item. The relationship followed Stefani’s messy August divorce with the Bush frontman, which was announced two weeks after Shelton’s split from Miranda Lambert. (Us broke the news that Rossdale had been cheating with their nanny Mindy Mann. Mann is now pregnant and expecting her first child with boyfriend Spencer Gutcheon.)
The No Doubt frontwoman opened up about her new music in a fascinating interview with the New York Times on Thursday.
“It’s almost like one of those movies where they discover they have magic,” Stefani said. “When I was able to first write a song, that’s when I found my whole self.”
Songwriter Justin Tranter also detailed Stefani’s process. “We had anger, we had sadness,” Tranter told the paper. “We had flirtation, we had sexy, and now we’re madly in love.”
