The new song, written by Ross Copperman, Josh Osborne and Matt Jenkins, focuses on how no matter where you are or what the circumstances might be, happiness is possible with the right person by your side.
"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 statement. "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. That’s what happened with Gwen and me this summer – and this entire year."
Earlier this year, Shelton and Stefani scored a multi-week No. 1 hit with their duet "Nobody But You" from Shelton's Fully Loaded: God's Country album. Additionally, the pair has previously released "Go Ahead and Break My Heart" and "You Make It Feel Like Christmas" together.
The superstar couple is set to perform "Happy Anywhere" on Friday during an appearance on Today's Summer 2020 Citi Music Series. Fan will also most likely hear the song on Saturday (July 25) during Shelton's drive-in concert special with Encore's Drive-In Nights concert series. The show, which is recorded in advance, will feature Stefani and Trace Adkins as special guests.
"This is such a great way to enjoy music with your family and friends and stay safe," Shelton said. "I’m excited we’re getting the chance to perform a concert for fans, and we’re going to go back and play old hits like 'Austin,' newer songs like 'God’s Country' and we might even introduce something brand new! So fill up those popcorn tubs and get ready for some country music."
