The Return of No Doubt

No Doubt's New Tracks
With some nervousness, Gwen Stefani & Co. agreed to play two tracks from their upcoming record for EW. Here's a preview:

''One More Summer''
A catchy driving-with-the-top-down single featuring synths, hand claps, and New Order-esque guitars. Sample lyric: ''One more summer, one more weekend/You're my lover, I'm your weakness.''

''Settle Down''
Under a dancehall beat (think the band's 2001 smash ''Hey Baby''), Stefani sings about trying to balance all aspects of her busy life: ''I'm-a rough and tough/Nothin's gonna knock this girl down.''
