After rumors, speculation, and a decade between albums, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]No Doubt[/lastfm] is officially back in the recording studio to work on their first album since 2001.
Followers of the official No Doubt Twitter page (@nodoubt) were treated to the big news Monday from guitarist Tom Dumont, who tweeted:
“Holidays over. 2010 done. 10 new songs written. No Doubt’s 2011 New Years resolution: to record our new album…beginning TODAY!”
He soon clarified that the band had already been in the studio working on the new album.
“Last year we were in studio mostly writing, just some recording. Starting today back in the studio, mostly recording,” he continued.
Gwen Stefani had split from the band to focus on her solo career, which spawned two very successful albums. But their 2008 reunion and 2009 tour has led them back into the studio to deliver us some fresh material.
It feels like it’s been ages since No Doubt’s last album, Rock Steady, which featured the hit single “Hey Baby.”
