The title track of No Doubt’s first album in more than a decade, Push and Shove (due out on September 25) has premiered via Ryan Seacrest, and once again, it’s hella good — or at least, much better on early listens than we would ever have expected back in 2001. “Never play it safe / No relapse,” Gwen Stefani sings with a Caribbean lilt in the ska-flavored opening verse, and that about sums up a genre-shuffling track that bassist Tony Kanal described to Rolling Stone as “our ‘Bohemian Rhapsody.'”
Personally (this is Gina here) I love it, although it’s very different from what I’m used to for this band. Sure, as a solo artist, Gwen Stefani played with a variety of different genres, but this is all of No Doubt on a dance song I can hear at a club. Sort of.
