A few new quotes have popped up from the new Entertainment Weekly feature out tomorrow, Friday. Gwen mentions that they only need to finish a couple more songs! We will have the full article (and scans!) up tomorrow.
NY Post — Given their 2009 reunion tour, news that Gwen Stefani, Tony Kanal, Adrian Young and Tom Dumont (the apl.de.ap of No Doubt) would be releasing a new album didn’t come as much of a surprise. But the immediacy of this No Doubt CD — it’ll drop this year! — caught me pleasantly off guard.
“We only have a few more songs to finish,” Gwen tells Entertainment Weekly. “Itâ€™s been a really long process. Fun, but itâ€™s starting to get … like, ‘Letâ€™s hurry up and finish it!'”
Writing started in 2008, when Gwen was pregnant with second son Zuma. “We definitely took a snailâ€™s pace, but only because we all have so much going on,” Gwen concedes. “My day consists of waking up with babies, and then working out, my clothing lines, and picking them up from school, and then rolling into the studio at 4:30 and you only have a few hours before you have to be up with the kids again. And I canâ€™t do it five days a week. I have to be home with them for dinner.”
The family vibe that permeated and, at times, detoured the recording process will also be a central component of the upcoming No Doubt tour. “Thereâ€™s going to be nine kids on the road with us,” Tony laughs. “Itâ€™s such a natural thing for us to be in our band; weâ€™ve been doing it our whole lives. But then all of a sudden, these other humans joined in, little tiny ones that are really demanding. Itâ€™s challenging,” Gwen admits.
While we’ll have to wait a little bit longer to hear the first original album from the band in over a decade, here are PopWrap’s four favorite No Doubt tracks off each of their CD’s to keep you rocking steady until the newest disc drops!
