There’s great news to be had for all fans of Gwen Stefani because the No Doubt singer is about to finish her new solo album. Stefani has been working on her third solo album—the first since 2006’s The Sweet Escape—with singer, rapper and producer Pharrell Williams, who is also her co-judge on The Voice this season.
In a panel discussion at New York’s Advertising Week on Monday, Stefani’s manager, Irving Azoff, revealed to Billboard that the singer was recording new tracks in Miami with Williams. Azoff also said that Stefani would be choosing a track next week to be her next single, which she will be performing on The Voice this season as well. According to Idolator.com, the news contradicts previous reports that a single called “Baby Don’t Lie” by Stefani would be seeing an October release.

Previously, Interscope chairman John Janick also told Billboard that Stefani would be releasing her solo album in December, after her reality TV series wraps for the season. “Benny Blanco will executive produce, and it will come out in partnership with his label [Mad Love Records] as part of our overall deal with him,” Janick said.
More great news for Stefani fans comes with reports that the singer is also working on an album with her band No Doubt. Billboard’s sources also say this is true. The rumored album will be the band’s first since Push and Shove from 2012.
Stefani recently performed with No Doubt at the Global Citizen Festival on Saturday. The band teamed up with Sting to reprise the “Message In A Bottle” cover they last performed together at the 2002 Super Bowl.
