Just a four months after the release of his latest album, Body Language, Blake Shelton is serving up even more new music with the release of a new single and an expanded version of the album.
Shelton is set to release “Come Back As A Country Boy” as his next single and it arrives this Friday, October 1. The song was written by Michael Hardy, Josh Thompson and Jordan Schmidt and will serve as the first of several new tracks to be released from the deluxe edition of Body Language.
“I think this song is an anthem for everyday hardworking country people out there,” Shelton shared in a statement. “We have so much pride in who we are and what we do that, if we ever died and got the chance to live life over again, we probably wouldn’t do it if we couldn’t be country.”
Shelton teased his new music on Twitter with a video showcasing a bonfire near the edge of a lake.
“Oh the sweet sounds of new music coming,” he wrote.
