Song writer/singer Blake Shelton has praised his yet-to-be released song Go Ahead And Break My Heart with partner Gwen Stefani. The song will feature on Shelton's upcoming album titled If I'm Honest, which will release on 20 May.

"We finally got a mock-up of the album, what the artwork was going to look like. And we flip it over and it has all the songs. I said, 'You know what? Take a picture of that and tweet it'," Shelton told ETOnline. "It'll be our way to announce that yes, we have a duet together."

The Hollaback singer revealed the cover of the album with all the tracks on Twitter on 19 April. "Look what I found lying round the house! #ispymyname #goaheadandbreakmyheart @blakeshelton #eeeekkkk! #crazy!" Stefani wrote.

In a separate interview Shelton told People Magazine, "We were at a point where it's like, 'Do we want to go there? What will people think?' And then we finally just got to the point where it's like, 'You know what? I don't give a s**t. I love this song! This song's important to us and the fact that we wrote it together is so important to both of us."

Speaking about the song the 39-year-old said: "[The song] is very personal for us both because, you know, we obviously have this bond that is remarkable together." The country singer added, "But the fact that we wrote a song together... I know that I don't co-write that much because I'm very insecure about it I guess and [Gwen's] kind of got her circle of people that she writes with. But for us to reach out to each other as writers, it may never happen again, who knows."

Stefani and Shelton got engaged in March this year. The Used To Love You singer separated from her husband Gavin Rossdale in August 2015, after 13 years of marriage, while Shelton and ex-wife Miranda Lambert split after four years of marriage.
