No Doubt ft. Major Lazer & Busy Signal – “Push and Shove”

JotD is really warming up to this Diplo-produced track.

No Doubt > “Looking Hot”

One more new track before the No Doubt comeback album drops last week. I have to say it … these tracks have all screamed mediocre to me. And thematically speaking, pretty immature. I wanted them to come back older and wiser. Here’s hoping there are some gems we just haven’t heard yet.

quote Ideally our new record would be coming out this year but it’s just not ready yet. This collection of songs means everything to us and our only priority right now is to make sure it’s the best album we can possibly make. There is still more work for us to do.

No Doubt, explaining on their website that their comeback album won’t be out until 2012. This album is now over two years overdue, so it had better be good.

Hear Bush's comeback single > NME →

… I knew there was a drawback to No Doubt having a big comeback. Gavin Rossdale must be bored at home and decided to make some boring new rock music (even the title, “The Sound of Winter,” sounds boring). Like Gwen and co., this will be Bush’s first album since 2001.

JotD, 7/21/2011

Well, I had big plans tonight of doing a roundup of all of these backlogged songs and news bits I wanted to share with you, but then my lovely evening out was soured when I returned home to a broken toilet. #justkeepin’itreal

As such, this weekend is going to be one you’ll want to pay attention to. I’ve got two big features I want to post if they’re ready, and I’ll do that roundup. Plus I’m going to do a huge Sunday night listening feature, mostly because there are a bunch of albums I have been wanting to try out but haven’t had the chance. If you’re a Chicagoan, we’ll likely be ping-ponging between extreme heat and storms, so you may wanna stay in and Jam, anyway (if you have A/C, that is; if not, come Jam with me; not really).

The most exciting of all of the posts today was this one, because, as you may know, No Doubt is my ultimate guilty pleasure act (Gwen Stefani’s solo work included). I’m dying to hear some new material, and word that they’re working with Major Lazer is majorly awesome news. Why? Means it might sound something like this:

Here’s No Doubt (ft. Bounty Killer) with “Hey Baby” (#5, 2001).

The No Doubt comeback album is still largely a mystery, but how’s this for a good sign?! Gwen and co. had Major Lazer in the studio this evening, according to a Twitter post.

My favorite guilty pleasure, No Doubt, paid tribute to Paul McCartney at the Kennedy Center Honors, televised last night on CBS. Gwen and Co. did ska-style takes on “Hello, Goodbye” and “Penny Lane,” earning the approval of Julia Roberts (among the star-studded guest list) and Sir Paul himself. The ceremony also honored with Oprah Winfrey, Merle Haggard, Bill T. Jones and Jerry Herman for their contributions to the arts.

P.S. No Doubt, I was promised a new album in 2010. Still waiting …
