Fans of The Voice coach Blake Shelton are loving his new look, which he debuted in a new music video ahead of The Voice season 22 premiere.
The star originally debuted the look on August 15, 2022 when he released the cover art for his single “No Body.” Then it was featured prominently in his new music video for the song.
The song is an ode to the 1990s and the country music of the time when 46-year-old Shelton originally moved to Nashville to pursue his country music career.
“I remember saying to Scott Hendricks, ‘Wow man, that would have had a line dance on it if it had come out in the ’90s.'” he told Peoplee before publication. “: That was the last time we ever looked back.”
The star once again debuted her old mullet for the video, but it won’t last long.
Shelton says wearing the mullet is ‘completely natural’
Shelton chose to wear a mullet wig for the music video.
“[Wearing the mullet] felt completely natural to me,” Shelton told People. “Especially doing the video in that particular bar. The air conditioning wasn’t on. It was hot in there.”
He added: “Hair was stuck to my neck and the side of my face. And I remember thinking, ‘Oh yeah, that’s why I ended up cutting off the mullet.’ Not because it wasn’t cool or trendy anymore, but because it was physically irritating.”
The star said he doesn’t care about trends and that the mullet won’t be making a comeback any time soon.
“I guess I can’t follow [trends]’ Shelton told People. “I should. I’m not against them. I’m just always a little late.”
Fans are obsessed with Shelton’s look
Shelton posted about the relapse on Instagram.
“I get excited and feel like a kid every time we release new music,” Shelton wrote of the video on Instagram. “This song in particular takes me back to the ’90s when I was in high school and moving to Nashville for the first time because it feels like what the music sounded like back then. I’m excited to share my new single #NoBody with you all. Stream and watch the official video now!! I hope you all enjoy it!”
Fans took advantage of the comments on Instagram to tell Shelton how much they love his new old look.
“Love it and the mullet! so cool,” one person wrote. “New sound is great.”
Another person commented“I like that you look like the real Blake Shelton again. Great video and song.”
“OMG is also bringing back the old style. This song and video are 🔥. So okay, yes, it was worth the wait. 💙🔥🔥🔥”, is another comment.
Others simply commented on the post to point out that Shelton has a mullet in the artwork and video.
“Mullet will always be your signature baby 😍…🔥🔥#staytruetoyouself”, one person wrote.
“No no no no!” is another comment.
The song might be confusing, Shelton told People, but it’s important to him and he loves watching people trying to figure out what it’s about.
“Since I recorded it and just play it for Gwen or my family or friends or whatever, you play this stuff because you want to see something for people to read,” he told the outlet. “And everyone would say, ‘I don’t really understand what that means. “No one but you.” Why are you saying that?”
He revealed it’s a play on words.
“It’s not a corpse,” he said. “No body, like the shape of your body. No body but yours.”
The Voice is scheduled to return to NBC on September 19, 2022. The season will star trainers Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, Camila Cabello and John Legend.
