Multi-Platinum selling Warner Bros. recording artist Blake Shelton has just released his current single, “Home,” to country radio. Written and originally recorded by Michael Buble, “Home” is the perfect match for Shelton. He wraps his rich voice around the lyrics and music presenting a passionate performance that brings out love and longing in the song.
Shelton was aware of “Home” when it was first released but it was after his current album, PURE BS, was released in 2007 that he was reintroduced to “Home” and fell in love with it all over again. He added it to his live show and played it for some fans and record executives during CMA week this past November. By the reaction he was receiving he felt like he had something special. “I didn’t want to wait til the next album to put this out – it just feels right for now,” says Shelton. And his record company, Warner Bros. Records agrees.
“Home” will be available digitally at Amazon.com on February 1 as a digital single and also included on PURE BS. On February 5 it will be available digitally at all other digital retailers including iTunes and Rhapsody. The ringtone will be available via all carriers in early February.
On March 4 Blake Shelton: Collector’s Edition will be available in Wal-Mart only. The disc will not only include “Home” but also Shelton’s mega-hits “Austin,” “Ol’ Red,” “Nobody But Me,” and “Some Beach.”
PURE BS Deluxe Edition, including “Home” and other unreleased material, will be available in stores this summer.
