Blake Shelton released a brand new song, “Bible Verses” ahead of his 12th studio album, ‘Body Language’ due out May 21st. Take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the new music.
As we anticipate the release of country superstar, Blake Shelton’s 12th studio album, Body Language, the singer gives fans another taste of the upcoming record. After releasing “Minimum Wage” and his duet with Gwen Stefani, “Happy Anywhere,” Shelton debuts the another track off the project called “Bible Verses.”
In a recent press release the singer shared, “No matter where you are in your faith, there are times you feel like you don’t measure up,” adding, “[The song] is an honest take on that conflict, but without preaching too much, it’s hopeful that everything will all work out in the end.”
One of Shelton’s most vulnerable ballads to date, the singer conveys what it’s like to struggle with your flaws. Written by prolific songwriters, Joe Fox, Andrew Peebles, and Brett Sheroky, the story is one that many people can find themselves in. It is clear in the singer’s impactful delivery that he is baring his heart, playing the role of a tortured soul.
“That I can open up that good book // And Heaven don’t look // Like it’s out of reach // When it feels like those apostles // Are giving me the gospel // And not the third degree // I just want it to read // Like Bible verses // And not the Bible versus me”
In the twenty years that Shelton has been a staple in country music when he burst on to the scene with “Austin,” he has provided us with an incredible catalog of songs. From the looks of it his next studio album, Body Language seems to fit the bill!
