Blake Shelton is going retro for his latest release.
The country star, 46, announced on Monday that he’s releasing a new, ’90s-inspired single, along with a music video for the track on Friday, August 19. Titled “No Body”, the tune channels Shelton’s feelings as a teenager in the 1990s.
“I get excited and feel like a kid every time we release new music,” the singer said in a release. “But this song in particular takes me back to the ‘90s when I was in high school and first moved to Nashville, because it feels like what the music sounded like at that time.”

“No Body” — a song about a guy who doesn’t want to be with “No Body” but the person he’s with — wasn’t immediately embraced by Shelton, who says, “The hook confused me the first time I heard it – I’m hoping it’s the same way for everyone else so they have to listen to it a bunch of times to figure it out!” the “Voice” host recalled with a laugh.
To match the song’s retro sound, Shelton’s music video was shot at a country bar in Los Angeles that channels ’90s country saloons where line dancing was a regular occurrence. Shelton himself fully committed to the ’90s aesthetic by sporting his once-signature and now-infamous mullet.
