But with this new project, Stefani is returning to her first love – music. She has long lyrically pinner her heart on the airwaves, and No Doubt fans will have a field day interpreting the hidden meanings of the group’s new album, including the single “Settle Down”. “It’s actually about when you’re in trouble and you’re sort of trying to hide it inside, but you’re not [fine],” says Stefani. It’s hard not to wonder about what darkness she’s referring to. “It gets harder when you’re happy in love, but it doesn’t mean the entire time you’re married you’re happy and in love. I just really tried to pick up on what was happening right there and when I was writing those songs,” says Stefani, who turns 43 in October.
But other details about the hotly anticipated album, No Doubt’s first original offering since 2001’s Rock Steady, are scant beyond the album’s slated September release.
Despite haveing her finger of creative pies, Stefani is adamant that recording and writing are still her greatest joy. “Out of all the artistic things I do, music is the most rewarding because it’s so hard to write songs,” she admits. “It’s so hard to believe it’s going to happen and then, once it does, it’s just addictive.”
