Hear Gwen Stefani, Blake Shelton Duet on ‘You Make It Feel Like Christmas’
Fans can now hear the full version of Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton's new holiday-time duet, "You Make It Feel Like Christmas." After teasing the song on Thursday (Sept. 21), Stefani released the tune late that night; readers can press play above to hear it.
Although "You Make It Feel Like Christmas" will appear on Stefani's Christmas album of the same, the first voice listeners hear on the song is Shelton's. The couple trades lines during the song's verses, then harmonizes on the chorus.
"Sweet gingerbread made with molasses / My heart skipped, and I reacted / Can't believe that this has happened / Like a present sent from God," Shelton and Stefani sing in "You Make It Feel Like Christmas." “Sleigh bells singing hallelujah / Stars are shining on us, too / I wanna thank you baby / You make it feel like Christmas.”
Entertainment Tonight first reported the rumor of Stefani and Shelton’s Christmas collaboration in August. A leaked track listing showed Stefani, Shelton, Justin Tranter and busbee as the writers on “You Make It Feel Like Christmas.”
In terms of his own career, Shelton recently released a brand-new single, “I’ll Name the Dogs,” his first new music since his 2016 album If I’m Honest. That record includes another duet between Shelton and Stefani, “Go Ahead and Break My Heart;” the two wrote the song together shortly after they began dating in late 2015, following Shelton’s divorce from Miranda Lambert.
"I'll Name the Dogs" will appear on Shelton's next studio album, Texoma Shore. The country star announced the project, which is due out on Nov. 3, on Thursday as well.
