The long-awaited record, which will be their first release since 2001’s Rock Steady (11 years?!), will be coming out September 25th. The group made the announcement via their website, writing the warning, “Ear candy coming your way!”
According to Rolling Stone, No Doubt began working on the recordings back in 2008, when singer Gwen Stefani was pregnant with her second son Zuma. In 2009, the band set out on tour, while continuing to work on their new album.
Stefani told Rolling Stone last June, “A lot of stuff happened during that time period. Marriages, babies and, for me, two records and two clothing lines. So if you really worked out the math, you’d be like, ‘Wow, you guys are going fast.’”
There are so many details that are still unknown about the album at this time, but as we learn about them, we’ll keep y’all updated. I’m super pumped and can’t wait for September to get here!
