For this week’s Flashback Friday, we’re looking back at No Doubt’s stop on Australia’s House of Hits from early 2000. The band stopped by and treated fans to two performances including “Ex-Girlfriend”, “Simple Kind of Life” and an in-studio interview. The band shared that it was their second time to Australia and were promoting their new album Return of Saturn. No Doubt was excited to be out talking about the album after spending two years in the studio.
Gwen says that the band put pressure on each other while writing the album to bring the best out of themselves. “We felt like we’ve been a band for so many years and we were in a really good position to try and improve. We had a really good opportunity. We just wanted to take our time and when we thought it was great and the best thing we’ve ever done, we would put it out. And here we are, we’re ready to go.”
