That was quick! Tom Tweeted over this last weekend that “journalists” were in the studio with them for a interview and taking photos, and it turns out it was for an upcoming feature in Entertainment Weekly magazine! The magazine hits newsstands THIS FRIDAY (too bad I cancelled my subscription awhile ago!) so we will have it soon! We are loving (and so curious!) about this “big news” secret that the magazine says will be included (release date? First single?) but we are PUMPED! We are also craving some new photos! We will have it up soon and if you see it first, make sure to let us know!
EW — It has been nearly 10 years since No Doubt dropped their last studio album, Rock Steady; five years since singer Gwen Stefani dropped her last solo album The Sweet Escape; and two years since the group reunited for a big summer tour.
But Job-like No Doubt fans are about to be rewarded: Stefani, guitarist Tom Dumont, bassist Tony Kanal and drummer Adrian Young sat down with Entertainment Weekly in Santa Monica this past weekend to chat about where theyâ€™ve beenâ€”and where theyâ€™re going.
And while weâ€™re keeping the big news a secret for now (you can read the whole interview in this weekâ€™s coming issue, which is on newsstands this Friday), Stefani did tell us that the days of her being a solo artist are probably over.
â€œThat was a moment in time,â€ Stefani said firmly when asked about the future of her solo career. â€œIt went on a little longer than we all thought it would, because it was inspired and you have to go with wherever youâ€™re at in that time in your life â€¦ [But] everything works out how it should.â€
For the rest of the No Doubtâ€™s revelationsâ€”including how life has changed since they now have nine(!) kids onboard between them, and what they think of the current state of the music industryâ€”check out this weekâ€™s issue.
And in the meantime, let us know in the comments section below if youâ€™ll miss the solo version of Stefani, and hollaback if you still spell out â€œB-A-N-A-N-A-Sâ€ every time youâ€™re in the produce aisle. (Or maybe thatâ€™s just us?)
