No Doubt Shares New Photos From The Recording Studio


Last August, Gwen Stefani — frontwoman of the band No Doubt — gave us a bit of an update on the recording of the new No Doubt album. In September, the band announced that their new disc would not be ready for release until sometime in 2012. This week, Gwen and the boys posted new photos from inside the recording studio … alerting us to the fact that they are still working hard on their new album which, hopefully, will be out sooner rather than later this year. Click below to check out the fun new No Doubt photos.

Gwen Stefani has returned to studio with her No Doubt bandmates to make new music for an upcoming project. A picture featuring the foursome hanging out in the studio has been shared on Twitter along with updates from Tony Kanal and Tom Dumont. Tony wrote, “Gwen back in the studio with us. Nothing like having the four of us in the same room making music. Let’s do this!” Tom then added, “Sometimes making music is easy and fun and everything just works. Gotta celebrate the good days!” It’s been over 10 years since No Doubt released their critically acclaimed album “Rock Steady”. They hinted a reunion in November 2008, and later followed it up with a tour featuring Paramore in 2009. Talks and rumors about their new album intensified in the months leading to 2011. Last summer, they hit the studio with Major Lazer. “We’re working on 3 different songs tonight in 3 different rooms in the same studio complex, all at once. Like magic, somehow it works. @majorlazer in one of those rooms. Cutting drums with Adrian [Young] at the moment,” Tom informed his Twitter followers back then.

OY! It seems like we’ve been hearing about this new No Doubt album forEVER! I know that they want to make sure they make the best album possible but … dang, these delays are driving me nuts! Still, I am confident that we will get the new No Doubt album this year … and that it will be well worth the wait. It’s so fun seeing photos of the gang altogether in the studio again. I just hope they are putting the final touches on the album … and will be announcing the release date SOON!

  • I know! I went to their concert (2009? Right?!) and was so excited just to get to finally see one of my favorite bands. Cannot wait for this new album.. can’t come soon enough.

      I was able to check a box off of my list after seeing that concert. I felt 15 again. Gwen Stefani is endowed with the most enviable set of abdominal muscles.

      I would love to hear them go back to their roots and do a straight up ska album.

      Also, can we just take a moment to talk about how Gwen is 40 and looks just as hot if not hotter than she looked when she was in her twenties!

    • Jas

      They have definitely been trying to meld into the background of what’s considered listenable, these last albums- Return of Saturn still holding some semblance of the old days. I would love more ska- definitely not retrograde! She is hotter now. I think she looks more comfortable with who she is. It helps that she’s an established artist now and not some thin-skinned kid out of Orange County.

    Does it make anyone else a little nervous that it’s taking so long? I hope they still have it!
