No Doubt album 'just not ready yet,' delayed until next year
No Doubt fans are going to have to wait a little bit longer for the band's reunion album.
The SoCal ska-pop band were expected to release the long-awaited follow-up to 2001's multi-platinum "Rock Steady" this year, after beginning the recording process in January, but they've announced they need to delay the as-yet-untitled project.
"Ideally our new record would be coming out this year but it's just not ready yet. We don't want to rush this album just to get it out," the band wrote on their website earlier this week. "This collection of songs means everything to us and our only priority right now is to make sure that it's the best album we can possibly make. There is still more work for us to do."
The rockers also killed rumors about collaborations and producers for the album, telling fans not to
"believe anything you hear unless it comes from us."
