No Doubt‘s long await comeback album has, at last, a name! The band revealed in a note on their website that their first record in 11 years, which is set for release this September, will be called Push and Shove. They also shared news that the album’s first single “Settle Down” will drop July 16th (finally!) with a video treatment by Sophie Muller, whose past work with the band includes classics like “Don’t Speak” and “Simple Kind of Life.”
Last month in a webisode, the No Doubt previewed a track — which we now know is the title track — called “Push and Shove.” Over a beat produced by the on-trend Diplo and Switch, Gwen Stefani sings: “You push and shove / I take the bait / It’s a risky business / Gonna play it anyway.” Which, given the time the that’s eclipsed since their last outing, could perhaps be about the pressures of returning to the studio. If so, it’s good to know that, solo albums and clothing lines and babies later, they are still willing to play together.
The full announcement, signed “Gwen, Tony, Tom & Adrian,” via the band’s official website, below:
Hope you are sitting down because we’ve got some really big news to share with you! While adding the finishing touches to our new album we realized it was time to name it…so we did, and the name is…(drum roll please)…Push and Shove !!!
We also want to let you know that the first single from Push and Shove will be “Settle Down” and we’ll be filming the video for it this week with our longtime friend and collaborator Sophie Muller. Very exciting!
We can’t wait to share it all with you. See you out there soon.
Oh and P.S…Webisode #2 is on it’s way. Stay tuned!
Gwen, Tony, Tom & Adrian
