Gwen Stefani And Blake Shelton Share New Duet ‘Purple Irises’

Gwen Stefani and her husband Blake Shelton recently shared their new duet, “Purple Irises,” via Warner Music Nashville/Interscope Records.

The introspective and nostalgic track is about how time tests and strengthens the bond between people.

“Wonder why you took a risk/On a broken heart you cannot fix,” the couple duets, referencing how they met on the set of “The Voice” in 2014.

“It’s not 2014 but you still look good in those jeans/Looking in the mirror do you see what I see,” Shelton sings on the track.

Scott Hendrics produced and recorded “Purple Irises” at Smoakstak Studios in Nashville. Stefani co-wrote the song with Svante HalldinJakob Hazell, and Niko Rubio.

“‘Purple Irises’ is a song that comes from the idea that when you plant something you are planting hope and watching love grow,” says Stefani. “Weathering all the different seasons of growth. We are in this together, we planted the seeds together and we are growing together.”

“We love this song so much,” adds Shelton. “It’s a song Gwen wrote with a couple of friends of hers, and I fell in love with it the first time I heard it. She knew there was something different about it and asked me to come in and sing with her. My longtime producer, Scott Hendricks, produced it, and Gwen’s been wanting to work with him for a long time now, and it’s turned into this really cool and different song that can live anywhere.”
