No Doubt struggled to record new album
The Ska rockers had trouble getting their sound right on their new album.
With their new album set to be a big hit, you may be surprised to learn that No Doubt struggled to record their first album in a decade and were continually re-recording during sessions.
The US band, led by Gwen Stefani, have released Push and Shove after a decade hiatus, during which Stefani had a successful if unplanned solo career, but they have revealed that it was not as easy getting their sound right when it came to the new material.
Stefani told MTV News, “When we first started writing, we couldn’t write, and then we finally got inspired and we started writing songs but they were coming slowly, like one at a time … and after we wrote, like, three songs, we got so excited that we went in and recorded them, just to see where we were at. And then we kept re-recording them, until we got to a place where we felt ‘This is it.’
”With this record, I kept waiting for the title to come, and everyone’s like ‘What’s it going to be?’ And up until the very last minute, we didn’t have anything. But I wasn’t worried about it; because it always appears at a certain point.”
