No Doubt Unleashes New Video for "Settle Down"...With Trucks Galore!
Last week, we mentioned that in addition to the big news that No Doubt is taking the stage at the massive iHeart Radio Music Festival in Las Vegas in September (which predictably sold out in minutes...quicker this time!). They were also just inches away from releasing the dancehall-inspired "Settle Down" their first song in 11 years. It's the lead single for the long-awaited album Push and Shove (out Sep. 25) that comes to us along with a neon-splattered video driven by an imaginative trucker theme. The band gave us a sneak peak last week in their latest webisode series.
Directed by Sophie Muller (who's worked with the band multiple times on videos like "Don't Speak," "Bathwater," and plenty of others), the video suitably captures the writhing island energy at work Adrian Young's skittering drum lines,Tony Kanal's thumping bass and a bright marriage of Tom Dumont's guitar and Gwen Stefani's lively-yet-vulnerable vocal delivery. Anyway, enough of our blabbing, see the new video after the jump.
