Just a rehash of Adrian’s interview with MTV News this weekend, but it focuses on the reggae element of the new album, so yay!
No Doubt are making a reggae album.
The band, who recently revealed they are planning to tour again following a hiatus while singer Gwen Stefani launched a solo career, say they are all fans of the genre and expect it to influence their new recordings.
Drummer Adrian Young revealed: “It seems like we’ve always come from an eclectic background musically.
“But we seem to always gravitate towards reggae. I can’t say that’s what our record is going to be like, because it’s too early to tell, but what makes us feel really good is reggae music. I can play reggae music to my grave.”
However, fans may have a long wait for the album, after Adrian said they have no plans to release any new material next year.
He added to MTV News: “We’ve been working on a new record off and on now for a bit of time, and we’re going to continue to work on a new record next year.
“We’re going to start touring in the spring of 09 through the summer, and we’re going to continue to work on music while we’re travelling.
“We’ll have a mobile studio on the bus and eventually get to a new No Doubt record.”
The band last released new material in 2001.
