“Let Me Reintroduce Myself,” the new single from Gwen Stefani, shows off a spunkier, edgier side of singer that fans haven’t seen since her No Doubt days

Gwen Stefani spent years fronting No Doubt before enjoying a successful, pop-oriented solo career. Now, Stefani has released a new solo single, “Let Me Reintroduce Myself,” which sees her returning to those No Doubt roots, presenting a more ska-punk and alternative sound. The song is available now via all digital retailers and can be streamed via YouTube below.

“This song is a way of saying I’m back with new music,” Stefani said in a statement. “It’s a fun, lighthearted song, because I got inspired and hopefully to bring a little bit of joy. The idea was to write a song that had a bit of a nostalgic feeling to it, so I think musically it reminds you of back in the day, going back to where I started musically which was with ska and reggae. I’m still the same me but here’s something a little bit new in case you feel like hearing a little bit more of me.”

Stefani recorded “Let Me Reintroduce Myself” in quarantine and wrote the song with Ross Golan and Luke Niccoli. The song has a fresh, upbeat sound, with Stefani crooning, “In case you forgot—no, I’m not records on your shelf.” This is a spunkier, edgier side of Stefani that fans haven’t seen since her No Doubt days.

“Let Me Reintroduce Myself” rounds out a busy year for Stefani. Not only did she recently get engaged to country music singer Blake Shelton, but Stefani also scored two top 10 hits on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart with Shelton, “Nobody But You” and “Happy Anywhere.” She also just reissued her holiday album, “You Make It Feel Like Christmas,” with two new tracks.
