Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton Drop ‘Purple Irises’ Duet: Listen

There seems to be nothing like Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton‘s love.

On Friday, the pair released their newest musical collaboration, “Purple Irises,” which hears the two duetting about choosing each other after being heartbroken.

“Wonder why you took a risk/On a broken heart you cannot fix,” the couple duets, referencing how the couple met on the set of The Voice in 2014, shortly following both of their divorces — Shelton from Miranda Lambert and Stefani from Gavin Rossdale. “It’s not 2014 but you still look good in those jeans/Looking in the mirror do you see what I see,” sings Shelton on the track.

The song, produced by Scott Hendricks, was co-written by Stefani with Svante Halldin, Jakob Hazell, and Latina singer-songwriter Niko Rubio.

The song arrived several days before Stefani is set to perform the track for the first time at TikTok’s official tailgate concert. Last week, she shared a photo of the flowers with a note that read: “To: Pretty Girl. Love, Blake.

The couple — which got married in July 2021 — has collaborated on duets several times over the years. Stefani joined Shelton for several country singles: She sang with him on “Go Ahead and Break My Heart” in 2016, “Nobody But You” in 2019, and “Happy Anywhere” in 2020.

Shelton also joined Stefani for the Christmas song “You Make It Feel Like Christmas” in 2017. The duo also released a duet of The Judds’ “Love Is Alive” last year in tribute to Wynonna Judd.


“The Judds are one of the greatest country acts of our lifetime. Eighties country music is my favorite decade, and I’ve been singing Judd songs for as long as I can remember,” Shelton shared in a statement. “We wanted to stick pretty close to the original version and Gwen just nails the vocal.”

Later this year, Stefani is set to reunite with her No Doubt bandmates for a special performance at Coachella. “It just happened so fast, and that’s my favorite kind of thing to happen,” Stefani told People. “And I think really just watching the internet blow up [with] how excited that the fans are? It’s inspiring us.”
