With more than 15 tracks written, punk princess Gwen Stefani is readying her return as a solo artist. Her long-awaited record was originally set to be released last winter, but Stefani instead shared two stand-alone singles: “Baby Don’t Lie” and “Spark The Fire.”
“I’m always in a rush. I want to get music out always and as soon as possible,” she recently told Entertainment Tonight. “I have never had a writing experience like this. This has been literally channeling unbelievable luck.”
She has been working with a group of songwriters and producers that she refers to as the Breakfast Club. “I went in and I found these kids—these writers and these producers—it’s a group of us,” she said. “I have 15 songs, or probably more than that. I do have more than that because I have a bunch from before, but the ones that I’m really addicted to, that I’m like, ‘Okay, these are the ones.’ It feels so good and it’s been incredible.”
Stefani’s recently appeared with her iconic ska-punk group No Doubt at Riot Fest Chicago. Check out our photo gallery of their performance.
