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.”

No Doubt revealed the artwork for ‘Settle Down’, the debut single off the Grammy Award-winning rock group’s new album ‘Push and Shove’. The LP is the Anaheim, California band’s first since their 2001 album ‘Rock Steady’ and gets a release via Interscope Records on September 25th.
‘Settle Down’ will be released July 16th, with the video premiering the same day. No Doubt shot the video for ‘Settle Down’ in Los Angeles with their longtime friend and collaborator Sophie Muller, who has directed several of the band’s prior videos.
No Doubt members Gwen Stefani, Tony Kanal, Adrian Young and Tom Dumont stated: “It all feels so real now. Deciding on the album title and filming the video were big moments for us. We can’t wait to share the songs with everyone.”
‘Push and Shove’ was recorded at Mix Suite LA with producer Mark “Spike” Stent. Also featured on the album is a collaboration with Major Lazer on the title track.

No Doubt are returning with their first album in over a decade, which is due out on September 25th. To give fans a sneak peak at what’s to come, the Anaheim, California rock band have just unveiled the first in a series of in-studio webisodes previewing a brand new track with Major Lazer and Jamaican artist Busy Signal called ‘Push & Shove’.
“We got a call from Jimmy [Iovine], and Jimmy is like, ‘You should meet with these guys, they really want to work with No Doubt’,” Tony Kanal said about the Major Lazer and Busy Signal collaboration. “We’d heard of Major Lazer and we’d heard of Diplo and Switch. We reached out to them and said do you have anything or do you want to work on something together. We all got in the studio together and we worked on this track, and here we are now with this amazing, amazingly exciting idea.”

Buzznet spoke with No Doubt’s lead guitarist Tom Dumont, who dished on the band’s upcoming tour with Paramore and revealed that the theme will be ‘A Clockwork Orange’. “You know, it’s kinda funny, whenever we do an album or a tour we’ve noticed that if we have a really strong theme that everything falls into place better,” Dumont explained. “Gwen came up with the ‘Clockwork Orange’ thing. She started getting into the visuals of those modernist movies from the 60’s.”
No Doubt checked in with fans on their official web site at nodoubt.com on Wednesday (December 3), revealing plans to hit the road soon, but before releasing a comeback album. They write:
As most of you saw from our little iChat (yes, it was really us), we have decided to go on tour next year while continuing to work on our album. We are working on tour dates now and can’t wait to get out there and play for all of you – it’s been too long! We’ll announce tour dates soon so be sure to check back for updates. Have a safe and happy holiday and we’ll see you on the road in 2009!
