Gwen Stefani, girlie-girl singer of SoCal ska outfit No Doubt, can’t shake ideas for the band’s forthcoming album. “I got an idea in my head about what we could do and now that’s all I can think about — doing a No Doubt record,” Stefani told British radio station, Galaxy.
No Doubt has been on hiatus since 2002 when Stefani departed to pursue her burgeoning solo career. But that hasn’t stopped the remaining members from a steady work regiment. Since 2002, drummer Adrian Young, guitarist Tom Dumont, and bassist Tony Kanal have released material with numerous collaborators, including Bow Wow Wow, Unwritten Law, and Dumont’s side project, Invincible Overlord. Late last year, Dumont revealed to MTV.com that the three No Doubt members were working on fresh tunes and awaiting the Stefani’s return. Now it seems the “Hollaback Girl” is actively engaged, albeit cognitively, in the forthcoming album, which will be the first for No Doubt since 2001’s Rock Steady.
