As the group hinted at a new release before, No Doubt's Gwen Stefani has revealed that their new record is influenced by 80s' music. The frontwoman continued to explain the group's first album since 2001 is inspired by one-hit wonders from the decade. "The last few weeks we've been listening to the worst of the 80's, in the sense of bad but good," she said. "Pop songs, one-hit wonders, nifty songs, things like that. You just go back and find things that you love, and try to figure out how they made them." The new record is scheduled to be released later this year and is still untitled. Its process has been slow since the group reunited in 2008 and Stefani has been pregnant with her second child. "They were doing stuff before, but things are kind of starting over," said Stefani. "We might re-visit some of that stuff, but it's the same old chase. It doesn't matter how we get there - we want to get there, we will, and we're having fun doing it." No Doubt's last album was titled Rock Steady and had a major reggae influence as it featured collaborators such as musicians Lady Saw and Bounty Killer and producer/songwriters Pharrell Williams and Prince.

    I dig No Doubt, but I kinda have my doubts about this. I'll give it a fair listen before judging too harshly, though.

    You guys are hardcore... will check it out most likely because it will be all over the airwaves now that Gwen is mainstream as hell.

    Theyve got like 5 albums dude! Their best one is the first one - all ska and new wave, it's amazing! Then Beacon Street is awesome too!

    i feel bad for the rest of the guys in the band. its like gwen puts them in a cabinet when she's done playing with them and only puts them out again when she's bored or has ran out of things to do. say what you want but gwen's rise in celebrity status destroyed this band.
