Gwen Stefani Plots ‘Sweet Escape’ This Winter

The singer has announced a release date and title for her second solo album.

Gwen Stefani has released more details about her second solo album, the follow-up to 2004’s Love. Angel. Music. Baby. The singer’s latest effort, The Sweet Escape, will be released Dec. 5 and is led by the first single, the Neptunes-produced “Wind it Up.” Stefani also collaborated with Akon, No Doubt’s Tony Kanal, Nellee Hooper, Sean Garrett, Swizz Beatz, Dave Stewart, and Keane’s Tim Rice-Oxley for this project. “This album is surprisingly different than the last one,” Stefani said in a statement. “I started recording it last year before Kingston was born and it’s definitely evolved over the last year. The dance sound is very ‘now.’ It’s modern…not so retro.” Stefani will kick off a U.S. tour in April 2007. Dates have not yet been announced.
