No Doubt has finally set a date for the release of their long-awaited new album. “Ear candy coming your way!” the band wrote in a message on their website announcing that the record will be coming out on September 25th.
This will be the sixth studio album for the band, and their first release since Rock Steady in 2001. No Doubt had started working on the recordings in 2008, when Stefani was pregnant with her second child, and the band set out on tour in 2009.
“A lot of stuff happened during that time period,” singer Gwen Stafani told Rolling Stone last June. “Marriages, babies and, for me, two records and two clothing lines. So if you really worked out the math, you’d be like, ‘Wow, you guys are going fast.'”
