The band keep landing on more and more anticipated albums for the coming year. The media is still going crazy over the new album just like all of us and it’s incredible! Though we really don’t agree with how some of the sites talk about No Doubt’s process, it’s still neat that everyone is still excited about it.
Billboard — No Doubt
Title: TBA | Release Date: TBA
In September, Southern California rock act No Doubt (@nodoubt) announced on its website that its long-awaited new studio album wouldn’t be ready for 2011. About two months later, singer Gwen Stefani tweeted enthusiastically about listening to “the new no doubt record.” Whenever the project arrives, it’ll be the band’s sixth studio set and first since 2001’s “Rock Steady,” which has sold 2.8 million copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Virgin Media — No Doubt
Whatâ€™s it called? As yet untitled.
What do we know? Gwen Stefaniâ€™s old band reformed in 2008 after a four-year â€˜hiatusâ€™ in which Stefani made a couple of classy, ultra-pop solo albums. Put her in a group however, and she makes electro-punk-reggae â€“ or something like that. Donâ€™t expect No Doubt to deviate from what was a hugely successful template once they knuckle down to new music.
Whenâ€™s it out? Soonish.

Due Out: This century
Fans have waited more than a decade for new No Doubt music. After all, Rock Steady, which featured a few of the bandâ€™s biggest hits (among them: â€œHey Babyâ€ and the Grammy-winning â€œUnderneath it Allâ€) came out in December 2001. Since then, Gwen Stefani has seen massive success as a solo artist and fashion designer, while the band that made her a household name has taken an extended hiatus.
The four original members, Stefani, Tom Dumont, Tony Kanal and Adrian Young returned to the recording studio in 2008 but a new album has been pushed back several times prompting many to wonder: will it finally see the light of day in 2012? No release date has been announced, but the band is keeping fans in the know by updating their official website, revealing that they would be collaborating with production duo Major Lazer and reassuring all that the new album is â€œwell underway.â€ The band also took to twitter to document the process thus far. â€œThe No Doubt studio sesh is thumping today,â€ guitarist Dumont tweeted Nov. 30. â€œSmiles all around!â€
