No “Misery” here! Gwen Stefani and her boyfriend, Blake Shelton, have been using their past heartbreak and newfound love to put out some telling new tunes.
Stefani’s latest single, “Misery,” was released on Thursday evening, ahead of her upcoming album, “This Is What the Truth Feels Like,” which drops on March 18.
“You’re like drugs to me/I’m so into you totally,” Stefani sings in the new song. “So put me out of my misery/Hurry up, come see me/ Enough, enough of this suffering.”
The lyrics are likely about Stefani and Shelton’s blossoming new romance, which started this past fall after both had split from their respective spouses, Gavin Rossdale and Miranda Lambert.
The country crooner was excited to see his girlfriend release another heartfelt anthem, retweeting a fan’s comments about the song and writing, “So awesome.”
“Misery” isn’t the first song Stefani has probably penned about her new relationship. She previously released “Make Me Love You,” recording the music video live during the GRAMMY Awards last month.
As for Shelton, earlier this week he debuted his new single “Came Here to Forget” with some pointed lyrics about his divorce from Lambert and new love with Stefani.
“It doesn’t take a rocket scientist if you follow my career a little bit or my life, you know what’s happened with me in the last 8 or 9 months,” Shelton previously told ET . “It’s all on there. It’s all on the record… I can put my life experiences whether it’s my divorce or my new girlfriend… I have an outlet for them.”
Less than 24 hours after the release of “Misery,” the song was featured on iTunes “Hot Tracks” list, and Shelton is currently at No. 4 on the iTunes chart for “Came Here to Forget.”
