No Doubt is officially back from their hiatus and is on the way to record their sixth studio album. Buzz on their comeback have been circulating early this month when the band starts to post updates of their status. Frontwoman Gwen Stefani has on March 28 wrote a message that they are indeed in the middle of a writing process.
It has been more than seven years since they last released an album together with the latest being the 2001 "Rock Steady". Gwen has since released two studio albums "Love.Angel.Music.Baby." and "The Sweet Escape" but the band never ruled out reunion. The singer who is pregnant with her second child said, however, that the process may go a little slower due to her pregnancy.
She wrote on the band's official message board: "Hey No Doubters, been thinking so much about you all lately as I am back in the studio again with the boys trying to write some new music. What an amazing few years it has been. So inspired going through the dance record phase of my life. Thank you so much for all your support! The tour was incredible. We ended up doing over 100 shows around the world and it was so rewarding and again inspiring. Thank you to everyone who came out to see it...memories for life! Great to be home with with all my boys."
"Feels crazy to be pregnant all over again!!!!! We have been spending every day up in the little studio in our house trying to write music. My favorite part so far is just seeing the guys everyday and hanging out. We have so much fun together. The songwriting part is a bit slow on my part... I think it has something to do with the baby in my belly but I'm sure it is all of the process and I really believe this could be the most inspired No Doubt record so far. Cant wait to see what happens. All my love g."
Drummer Adrian Young said in June last year that the band has actually entered the studio without Gwen. They predicted that the album should be out by Fall this year.
