|Official Artwork for Settle Down|
No Doubt at long last have released their new Single, Settle Down, a perfect-for-Summer Jam consistent with their brand of Ska-Pop-Rock. The Track is their first original material to surface in over a decade and can be found on their upcoming September 25, 2012 Release, Push and Shove.
Although the Verses will take a few listens to acquire a taste for, I appreciate the rhythmic complexities of the Track and that Chorus in the end is what will make this a Winner. The Breakdown isn't like anything I've ever heard, so Bonus Points for Originality. I already hear a more confident- sounding Stefani (at least more than she sounded on her last Solo Disc, The Sweet Escape). Excited for what's next and you should be too!
The Sophia Muller-directed Video has just surfaced also, capturing the fun essence and colour of the Track perfectly and what No Doubt exactly are all about. A cute little on-screen Reunion moment thrown-in also for us Fans!
