No Doubt Announce Album Release Date, New Single Coming In July
With a few performances scheduled next month, the band released a message to their fans on their website.
“Hi Everyone… Hope you are sitting down because we’ve got some really big news to share with you! While adding the finishing touches to our new album we realized it was time to name it…so we did, and the name is…(drum roll please)…Push and Shove !!!
We also want to let you know that the first single from Push and Shove will be “Settle Down” and we’ll be filming the video for it this week with our longtime friend and collaborator Sophie Muller. Very exciting!”
Over the past year, the band’s Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube channel have been littered with behind-the-scenes glimpses of the production process. From periodic photographic updates to a webisode series called In The Studio, the buzz has been building for almost a year.

A year ago singer Gwen Stefani told Rolling Stone: “It’s so exciting to have a record coming out, and we all want the same thing: for it to be modern and catchy and addictive. Once you make music that connects with people, it’s like you taste blood — you can’t go back.”
The album was recorded in Santa Monica with Grammy-winning producer Spike Stent. Stent has worked with a litany of international successes: U2, Bjork, Depeche Mode, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Franz Ferdinand.
In the coming weeks, fans will see No Doubt reunite onstage for the first time in almost two years at the Teen Choice Awards July 22.
