Gwen Stefani: ‘I don’t know what’s going to happen with No Doubt’
Gwen Stefani is enjoying a new round of success with her latest solo album, “This Is What the Truth Feels Like,” and she’s forging ahead with a with a North American tour that sets off next month.
When asked if she is thinking of getting back together with her band, No Doubt, Stefani doesn’t have a clear answer.
“I don’t know what’s going to happen with No Doubt,” she said in a new interview with Rolling Stone. “When Tony (Kanal) and I are connected creatively, it’s magic. But I think we’ve grown apart as far as what kind of music we want to make.”
No Doubt’s last album was 2012’s “Push and Shove.” Stefani said she wants her former colleagues in the band to “to be happy and do whatever they need to do to fulfill whatever creative place they need to fill.”
In another portion of the interview, Stefani talked about working with Prince. She appears on his song, “So Far, So Pleased,” off 1999’s “Rave Un2 the Joy Fantastic.”
“Later, I sent him the demo to this song ‘Waiting Room’ — he called and said, ‘Hey, I had to rewrite the song, but I think you’re going to like it,’” she recalls. “He played on the version you hear on [No Doubt’s] Rock Steady, and I sang on his album.”
