After an eight-year long absence from her solo career, No Doubt frontwoman and recent judge of The Voice Gwen Stefani has returned with a reggae-tinged pop single, “Baby Don’t Lie.”
It’s her first piece of solo output since 2006’s The Sweet Escape, and it’s a pretty broadly pop effort in line with 2012’s No Doubt record, Push and Shove. Stefani sounds shattered as she sings, “But there’s something behind those eyes / Those eyes / That you can’t that you can’t disguise / Disguise.”
Stefani has been rumored to be working on a new solo album with fellow Voice judge Pharrell in recent months. The pop star will also make an appearance on Calvin Harris’ new album, Motion, next month. Stream “Baby Don’t Lie” below.
