No New No Doubt in 2011. No Doubt just released an official statement via NoDoubt.com that the album is just not ready yet.
The statement from the entire band reads:
We've been incommunicado for the past few weeks so we wanted to reach out and say hi. Work on the new No Doubt album is well underway and we can't wait to share it with you. The past twelve months have been eventful; we performed for Paul McCartney and President Obama at the Kennedy Center Honors, three beautiful new No Doubt babies were born, and we've recorded in studios all over Los Angeles. 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. 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...
We love our fans and are doing this for your ears and want you to know how much we appreciate your patience and support.
PS. There have been some stories circulating about us collaborating with outside producers and artists. Please don't believe anything you hear unless it comes from us.
Wow! I was really hoping we would get a taste of some new No Doubt but I guess not. We understand that the new record is not ready n don't want to rush the recording process. Sigh.
We will just have to wait patiently and hope 2012 will bring us some new No Doubt!-DocFB
