No Doubt frontwoman Gwen Stefani says that there's been a lot of praying involved with the band's new album. It will be the first studio album from the California rockers since 2001's "Rock Steady".
"We wish we were good enough to craft it and have a vision, but our songwriting process is sort of desperate – we're just praying that something comes out", she said, according to NME.
The band's sixth album, due later this year, will include songs with the titles "Undercover
", "Settle Down
" and "Dreaming The Same Dream
", which Stefani called a "prom song
She also said that she's taken some of Prince's ideas to heart during the creative process:
"Prince once said to me, 'Do you ever just try and write a hit song? You know, instead of trying to be all arty about it?'"
