Blake Shelton’s ‘Turnin’ Me On’ Is All About Gwen Stefani [LISTEN]

Blake Shelton co-wrote one song on his upcoming new album, Texoma Shore, and in advance of the album’s release, he’s shared that track. Readers can press play above to hear “Turnin’ Me On.”

“Turnin’ Me On” features a subtle reference to Shelton’s girlfriend, Gwen Stefani. The song was written by Shelton, Jessi Alexander and Josh Osborne, and includes the lyric “She’s Revlon red in the blackest night,” a reference to Stefani’s work with the Revlon cosmetics brand (and her penchant for red lip color).

In a press release, Shelton explains that he began writing “Turnin’ Me On” earlier this year, during some downtime on his tour bus. He brought Alexander and Osborne in to help him finesse the idea.

“I was [on my bus] alone, and I had my guitar, started playing a little melody that I was hearing in my head, and next thing you know, I started writing a song. I wrote a verse, then I wrote a chorus, then I realized it was going somewhere, and I felt good about it,” Shelton says. “I’m super proud of it — and it’s not hard to figure out who this song is about.”

Texoma Shore is due out on Friday (Nov. 3).

“When you listen to the record, it will go from something traditional to something that will make your head spin, back to something even more traditional,” says Shelton in a press release. “That’s just what you can expect from one of my albums.”

Texoma Shore follows Shelton’s 2016 album If I’m Honest.

“At this point in my career, it’s always good for me to try something different, with different sounds, and I think you’ll hear hints of that on this record,” Shelton continues. “I’ve explored about every part of country music you can explore, and it seems like I always keep coming back to my roots, which is traditional country music.”
