No Doubt are already back in the studio in Los Angeles and working on new music, according to a post from the band on their Facebook page.

According to the note, while No Doubt were touring last year behind their sixth LP and comeback record Push and Shove, frontwoman Gwen Stefani was inspired to write new music. The band decided to kick off 2013 by getting right back into the studio. "We did so in January and the new music started flowing with unexpected ease," the note explains. "After spending three years recording the last album, this new pace feels incredibly exciting."

The band's sudden burst of creativity, however, means No Doubt will postpone some of their upcoming tour plans so they can continue to focus on the record.

"Our goal as a band is to share this new music with you as quickly as possible – both recorded and live on tour," the band wrote. They promised to satiate fans' appetites with photos and videos from their current sessions.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
