First Listen: Gwen Stefani Debuted A New Song Titled ‘Start A War’ In Concert Last Night

Glorious, of course
New Gwen for You

Gwen Stefani played a one-off concert here in LA last night, her first solo show in over 8 years, and for the occasion she performed a new song titled Start A War. In addition to her other new songs Spark the Fire and Baby Don’t Lie, Gwen debuted War which was co-written by Sia (which is very obvious once you give the song a listen above). As I understand it, Gwen won’t be going on tour when her new album is released this year so last night’s show might be her only concert for some time … and yes, I’m kicking myself to near death today for missing it :( At least we have this new song to tide us over for a bit until we hear more new music from Gwen. What do you think of Start A War, do you like?
