Possible new song titles with Gwen listed as writer have been popping up on a few publishing sites which have fans excited for new music. She shared recently with Weekender that she’s planning on releasing something this year but wouldn’t divulge any more details.
With the latest batch of song titles found on Gema.de, fans may be getting something from Gwen that we haven’t had before — a holiday album. Titles registered on the German website include “Christmas Eve”, “My Gift Is You”, “Under the Christmas Lights” and “You Make It Feel Like Christmas”, the latter co-written with Blake Shelton.
Writing credits listed on the site are as follows:
“Christmas Eve” — Gwen Stefani, Justin Tranter, Busbee
“My Gift Is You” — Gwen Stefani, Justin Tranter, Busbee
“Under The Christmas Lights” — Gwen Stefani, Justin Tranter, Busbee
“When I Was A Little Girl” — Gwen Stefani, Justin Tranter, Busbee
“You Make It Feel Like Christmas” — Gwen Stefani, Justin Tranter, Blake Shelton, Busbee
Another new song titled “Never Kissed Anyone with Blue Eyes Before You” also surfaced on BMI last week that credits Gwen, Justin Tranter and Busbee as song writers, too.
It seems that Gwen is reuniting with close friend and writing partner Justin Tranter again, whom worked with her on This Is What the Truth Feels Like, and producer/songwriter Busbee. Busbee has written for some of pop and country’s biggest names over the last decade including Blake Shelton, Keith Urban and Lady Antebellum.
For what it’s worth, celebrity gossip website Radar Online reported in 2016 that Gwen and Blake were planning “a Christmas album” together but listed unnamed sources for the information. Busbee shared a photo on Instagram in March with Gwen in the background in what looks like a recording studio (which has since been removed). Interestingly enough, a video was also shared previously by Busbee (which a fan had found and reposted on Twitter) which features musicians recording what sounds like a holiday-tinged song which ends on what fans are believing with a hint of vocals from Gwen in the background with producer Eric Valentine.
We’re super excited and intrigued and if it’s true, we could possibly see a release in the next few months. By the titles and collaborators, we’re kind of anticipating a more low-key, folky sound which fits Gwen’s vocals quite nicely and would be a fun direction for her to go into. She could also go into a totally different and unexpected direction and a project like this would give her the opportunity to collaborate with multiple artists.
