Gwent Stefani and Co. are currently putting the finishing touches on their upcoming sixth studio album, Push and Shove, which is bound to fly off shelves just like No Doubt’s last effort, ‘01’s Rocksteady.
Lady Gaga hit up her Twitter account today (July 6) to reveal her excitement about the upcoming effort, writing, “Is anyone else freaking out about No Doubt putting out a new album. I can’t wait!”
Gaga will get her first taste of some new ND material soon enough; the band releases their new single, “Settle Down,” on July 16. No Doubt has already wrapped the track’s video and recently posted a behind-the-scenes making-of featurette (below), which sadly doesn’t give us even a tease of the new song and is set to their hit “Underneath it All,” on their Facebook page.
No Doubt will perform the live debut of “Settle Down” July 22 at Nickelodeon’s Teen Choice Awards, which will be the band’s first official performance since their reunion tour back in ’09. They’re also set for appearances on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” on July 26 and a “Good Morning America” on July 27.
Push and Shove is largely produced by Mike “Spike” Stent (Madonna, Lady Gaga, U2), but ND also hooked up with Diplo and Switch (collectively known as Major Lazer), who contributed to the album’s title track.
