Blake Shelton’ s new single “Sangria,” officially heads to radio next week but the video for the song has just been released. The clip was shot at The Lady Smith, the bed and breakfast owned by Blake’s wife, Miranda Lambert, in their hometown of Tishomingo, OK.
“Sangria” is a passionate love song and unlike anything Blake has recorded before. He said, “’Sangria’ is one of the sexiest songs I’ve ever cut. It sounds like something that came from a different time, almost like something Chris Isaak would have had on one of his records at some point. It’s just about one of those nights where you drink too much and you’re gonna end up hookin’ up with this person, it’s just inevitable. It’s not too over the top, but it’s pure sex – that’s the only way I know to describe that song.”
“Sangria” is the third single from Blake’s latest album, Bringing Back The Sunshine.
