Blake Anxious to “Lay It Out There”

Blake #1RTThere has been a media frenzy around Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert since the two announced their divorce last spring.  For the most part, neither of them have said much about the split.  But he told Country Countdown USA’s Lon Helton that he’s anxious to talk about everything that happened, and he says his next album will answer a lot of questions:

“The thing I’m focused on, that I’ve been thinking about since the beginning of the year is this next studio album.  That’s all I care about, and we already cut a lot of stuff.  If I got hit by a truck, the label would have enough for a new album.”

Have you written much for this? “I have, I’ve written more than I’ve written in 15 years, for obvious reasons, all the awful things that have happened in my personal life, but the way the year ended is also the greatest of my life.”

What made it great? “I better not talk about that just yet, but sometimes you don’t know who’s in your life that can save you.  I found some people in my life that have changed my life forever.  Some has been bad and some that’s been pretty good.  I’m doing what I’m supposed to do, and that’s put all I’ve gone through and put it into music, and I never felt more connected to a record before.  When people hear this record, they may not know what happened to me, but they’re gonna know how I felt about it.  And that’s exciting for me, to just lay it out there for people.”

When can we expect the new music? “I hope to have a new single out in January.  I want to get it out there.  It’s driving me nuts to not be already into that project because it’s all I’m thinking about.”

And when will the album out? “I hope the album can come out in May, and people can be knowing, if they’re interested, what I’ve been going through, the good and bad.”
