Blake Shelton is bringing back his iconic mullet!
The country superstar unveiled his new single, “No Body,” along with a throwback-style single art on Monday, sending fans into a frenzy by sporting a mullet.
“Had to bring back the mullet just for y’all.. New song out this Friday,” Shelton wrote.
Fans flocked to the comments section to share their excitement over the return of the mullet.
“Yes!!! What goes around comes around again, no matter what age!!! I love it,” wrote one Instagram user, while another shared, “OMG I CANT WAIT.”
Others used the hashtag “#LongHairDontCare” and someone else declared, “Should’ve been sexiest man alive cover!”
This marks Shelton’s first new release since 2021’s Body Language and Body Language Deluxe.
“I get excited and feel like a kid every time we release new music,” Shelton shared. “But this song in particular takes me back to the ‘90s when I was in high school and first moved to Nashville, because it feels like what the music sounded like at that time.”
Co-written by Rodney Clawson, Chris Tompkins and Josh Kear, “No Body” will find Shelton telling the story of a guy who only wants to be with the person he fell in love with and “No Body” else.
“The hook confused me the first time I heard it – I’m hoping it’s the same way for everyone else so they have to listen to it a bunch of times to figure it out!” laughed Shelton.
The video for the tune will also be released on Friday (Aug. 19) and will feature Shelton wearing a cowboy hat on top of his infamous mullet. Filmed at a country bar in Los Angeles, the clip will take fans back to the ‘90s era when country establishments were filled with patrons line dancing.
On September 10, Blake Shelton, who will celebrate his 12th year as a Grand Ole Opry member, will return to the Grand Ole Opry for not one, but two shows. The Grand Ole Opry member will appear alongside Callista Clark, Kolby Cooper, Todd Tilghman and more.
Shelton and his The Voice cohorts, wife Gwen Stefani, plus John Legend and Camila Cabello, will appear on the much-anticipated The Voice premiere on Monday, September 19.
NBC’s The Voice will air every Tuesday at 8 P.M. ET on NBC beginning September 19.
