Blake Shelton teams up with classic-country stalwart John Anderson for a sentimental new duet, taking an off ramp from the modern world on “Tuesday I’ll Be Gone.”

Recorded as part of Anderson’s upcoming Years album (out April 10 and produced by Black Keys front man Dan Auerbach), the easy-rolling track is full of nostalgia and built on the freewheeling wanderlust of a true rolling stone. A laid-back melody seems to beckon listeners to the open highway, as the two stars trade road-weary verses and finally come together for a sweeping, full-speed-ahead chorus. Meanwhile, a sepia-toned video shows Shelton and the “Seminole Wind” hit maker laying the track down in the studio.

“Tuesday I’ll be gone / It’s time for moving on / My road to happiness / It might be long / But Tuesday I’ll be gone,” Shelton and Anderson harmonize in the track’s hook.

The country pair toured together last year on Shelton’s Friends & Heroes Tour, and are doing so again in 2020. Shelton is featured on multiple collaborations at the moment, including his “Nobody But You” duet with girlfriend Gwen Stefani and the dance crossover “Get Ready” with hip hop star Pitbull.
