No Doubt just added the studio update from Tom that he posted on the forum yesterday afternoon and more Twitter photos to the officaial site!
No Doubt — Hello there,
I can see how our tweets might have been less than clear about our songwriting and recording process. We worked (in a little studio) most of last year writing songs. We ‘demo’ them as we write, which is like making rough draft recordings.
At one point we did go into a ‘real’ studio last year (in May I think) to really record some of them for the final album versions.
But we didn’t finish those songs completely in that session. After that we resumed in the writing studio and wrote more tunes during the rest of last year.
Now, starting today, we’re back in a real studio really recording again. Excitedly!
There are two new ND babies coming soon, mine and Tony’s, so there will be a little delay for that. 🙂
This process does take us awhile, it always has. Plus life is a little more complicated and busy than it was before we all had kids etc.
So the goal is to write a couple songs more this year and of course finish recording all of them.
We’re really really happy with the new songs and feel this great sense of momentum going into the new year.
