After a 4-year hiatus—which allowed the band members to focus on their own solo projects—No Doubt finally released the first single off their newest album, Push and Shove, out on September 25th.
The music video for “Settle Down,” was directed by Sophie Muller, who had worked on multiple other projects for the band in the past. The music video follows the members of the band as they are traveling to their concert, where a wild dance party eventually erupts as the band performs their song.
If “Settle Down” is any indication of what Push and Shove has to offer, it is safe to say that this album is still very much what fans have come to expect from the band. In “Settle Down,” much like in their previous work, ska and reggae are heavy influences—an eclectic mix of sounds No Doubt made famous in the U.S.
Although fans will have to wait until September for the full taste of No Doubt’s latest album, they will have a little bit of flavor to tide them over with “Settle Down.”
