No Doubt Releases First Single in a Decade: "Settle Down"
After a decade-long hiatus, No Doubt is making its storied comeback with the release of the first single off their new album, Push and Shove, which is out September 24.
"Settle Down" is a boppy song with slight reggae influences that will make its video debut on E! tonight at 8 p.m. ET. The band hired their old director, Sophie Muller, to dream up an aesthetically pleasing (but quirky) video to accompany the summery song.
"We collaborated completely," she told Rolling Stone. "I’ve become friends with them. When you have a working relationship with a band, it’s a very comfortable and lovely process."
Sophie, who also directed Don't Speak and Simple Kind of Life, says it was bassist Tony Kanal that came up with the idea to cast the bandmates as truck drivers on their way to meet after 10 years apart.
Gwen Stefani employs her usual grrrl power lyrics with verses like "I'm a rough and tough/And nothin's gonna knock this girl down" and the infectious hook, "Get in line and settle down."
Since the band's break, Gwen went on to release two solo studio albums, Love. Angel. Music. Baby. and The Sweet Escape.
