Blake Shelton has roped Gwen Stefani into another duet!

The country singer, 44, will drop "Happy Anywhere," a new single on which he collaborates with his girlfriend, 50, later this week. The couple will perform the new tune together on the Today show during its broadcast on Friday.

Shelton sings about being content no matter where he is as long as he has Stefani by his side on the track, which follows their duet from earlier this year, "Nobody But You." The star said the song is even more meaningful amid the ongoing pandemic.

"Even though Gwen and I just had a single out, we decided that, under the circumstances, this year … man, there's never been a better time for 'Happy Anywhere,'" Shelton said in a press release.

"We've all been in quarantine and lockdown, and hopefully we've been doing that with somebody that we really love and enjoy being around,” he added. "That's what happened with Gwen and me this summer — and this entire year."
