Blake Shelton Announces New Album, ‘Texoma Shore’
Blake Shelton has announced his next album. Texoma Shore is due out on Nov. 3.
Shelton announced the news of Texoma Shore's release on Thursday (Sept. 21), via social media. In addition to the release date, his social media messages share the album's cover -- a sun-soaked photo of Shelton on the shore of what may be Lake Texoma, after which the record is named -- and note that the project will be available for pre-order on Friday (Sept. 22), but do not include any further details.
Lake Texoma is a reservoir formed by the Denison Dam, which is located on the Red River, at the border of Oklahoma and Texas (hence the portmanteau Texoma). The lake is located about an hour south of both Tishomingo, Okla., where Shelton lives, and Ada, Okla., Shelton's hometown.
In early September, Shelton released Texoma Shore's first single, "I'll Name the Dogs." The song is fans' first glimpse of new music from Shelton since his 2016 album If I’m Honest. Also on Thursday, Shelton's girlfriend, Gwen Stefani, teased the couple's Christmas song collaboration, "You Make It Feel Like Christmas," which will appear on her upcoming holiday album.
Shelton will be back in his judge's chair for the 13th season of The Voice, which begins on Monday (Sept. 25).
