Gwen Stefani doesn’t release her new LP This Is What the Truth Feels Like until March 18th, but the No Doubt singer has unveiled the album’s latest single and opening track “Misery.” Despite the dour title, the catchy single is actually an anthem to a new relationship, with the only “misery” being when Stefani’s away from the song’s fledgling romance. The video features the track’s handwritten, feel-good lyrics.
“I’m so into you totally / You’re like drugs to me / So put me out of my misery / Hurry up, come see me / Enough, enough of this suffering / hurry up, come see me,” Stefani sings on the booming chorus. “Misery” was co-written by Stefani with Justin Tranter and Julia Michaels – writers on Stefani’s “Make Me Like You” as well as Selena Gomez’s “Good for You” and “Hands to Myself” – and the Swedish production duo Mattman & Robin.
“Misery” follows This Is What the Truth Feels Like singles “Make Me Like You” and the breakup ballad “Used to Love You.” Stefani’s new album, her first since 2006’s The Great Escape arrives March 18th.
