Back in January we learned the amazing news that No Doubt has started work on a new album of new material. Today we get a bit of an update from singer Gwen Stefani about how things are going. Recording, she says, is almost done and she even reveals the name of a few songs … including one she describes as a “prom song”. Click below to find out from Gwen herself how close we are to hearing new music from No Doubt.
Gwen Stefani has spoken about No Doubt’s songwriting process for their first album in ten years. The ‘Don’t Speak’ band will release their follow-up to 2001′s Rock Steady later this year, and are reportedly close to completing it. Songs on the album include ‘Easy’, ‘Heaven’ and ‘Dreaming the Same Dream’, which Stefani has described as “a prom song”. Speaking about whether the album will have a theme or concept, she told Q: “We wish we were good enough to craft it and have a vision, but our songwriting process is sort of desperate – we’re just praying that something comes out.” The singer added that she usually works on the album from 5pm to midnight, after caring for her children, designing for her fashion line LAMB and “working out” during the day. “That’s the horror of any creative person,” she added. “To have to be creative between certain times.” No Doubt have worked on the album with Major Lazer, who have previously produced for the likes of Beyoncé and Nicola Roberts.
Man … I am really hoping for a new album THIS year. I’m a bit worried to hear that recording isn’t done yet … but, I trust the new album will be fantastic. This update is good news … but I’m really anxious for the news that the album is DONE and ready for RELEASE. Keep up the good work Gwen and guys … we’re anxiously waiting ;)
