No Doubt ‘Settle Down’ Video

No Doubt

No Doubt have released the music video to their new single ‘Settle Down’. The song is taken from the Anaheim, California rock band’s sixth studio album ‘Push and Shove’, out September 25th on Interscope Records. ‘Push and Shove’ is the first album from the group since 2001′s ‘Rock Steady’.

“I think Tony came up with the idea that we should do something with trucks,” the video’s director Sophie Muller tells RollingStone.com, referring to the band’s bassist Tony Kanal. “The idea is they are all driving to meet after having had their separate lives over the last 10 years.”

Muller also praised the effort of singer Gwen Stefani in the process of creating the video. “You could feel her absolute love for making videos and her total commitment to every single scene that she does,” Muller said. “It’s just lovely.”

In a joint statement released to the media yesterday, the band says:

Now ‘Colourmeinkindness’ is finished, we head out to play a string of shows across America. Due to a number of personal commitments, this record and these shows will be the last thing we do as a band for a very long time. Basement has never been about achieving anything; it was simply an enjoyable outlet for creativity and emotion. That being said, we are incredibly grateful for the support we have received over the last two years. We have managed to do some amazing things and see some incredible places and the people we have met along the way will be our friends forever.
