Early last month we got an update from No Doubt frontwoman Gwen Stefani on the band’s progress as they write and record their new album and, at the time, she let us know that work on the album has been “desperate” but productive. Today, an official statement on the official No Doubt website announces that the planned album has been pushed back to 2012. Click below to read the explanation why.
We’ve been incommunicado for the past few weeks so we wanted to reach out and say hi. Work on the new No Doubt album is well underway and we can’t wait to share it with you. The past twelve months have been eventful; we performed for Paul McCartney and President Obama at the Kennedy Center Honors, three beautiful new No Doubt babies were born, and we’ve recorded in studios all over Los Angeles. Ideally our new record would be coming out this year but it’s just not ready yet. We don’t want to rush this album just to get it out. This collection of songs means everything to us and our only priority right now is to make sure that it’s the best album we can possibly make. There is still more work for us to do…
We love our fans and are doing this for your ears and want you to know how much we appreciate your patience and support. We’ll keep you updated here at nodoubt.com and on our Twitter and Facebook accounts.
Gwen, Tony, Adrian and Tom
PS. There have been some stories circulating about us collaborating with outside producers and artists. Please don’t believe anything you hear unless it comes from us.
Blah. But … it’s cool. As much as I would LOVE to get the new No Doubt album sooner rather than later, I’d much prefer the disc to be as perfect as possible rather than rushed. I guess we’ll just have to sit tight and wait a wee bit longer for the goods. Sigh.
