Interscope Records must be excited about No Doubt’s return. Just the other day we saw the album artwork. Now they’re supersaturating media (all forms) with Gwen Stefani and company’s comeback single “Settle Down.” Did you notice that the video and mp3 dropped on the same day?
And hey, did you happen to see that tweet from Lady Gaga?
Check out the video:
True, “Settle Down” doesn’t stray from the No Doubt signature ska-influenced sound. But it doesn’t need to. As the adage goes: if it’s not broken, don’t fix it.
It’s been a while since we’ve had original music from the group. Everyone’s been busy with side projects: reproducing (yuck), solo careers, fashion lines, and the like. I, for one, am just glad they’re back.
