No Doubt - "Settle Down"

No Doubt’s last studio album came out 11 years ago, but they’re coming back in fall with the new LP Push And Shove, and they worked with Major Lazer on it. Today, they debut first single “Settle Down,” a lithe and bubbly new-wave track that somehow lasts for six minutes. The track echoes Santigold in the same way that Santigold’s music echoes No Doubt, if that makes any sense at all. The video, directed by their “Don’t Speak” collaborator Sophie Muller, should be arriving today. (UPDATE: Here it is.) Below, stream the song and check out a teaser trailer for the video.

Push And Shove is out 9/25 on Interscope.

  1. Finally! All I really wanted for their comeback. Amazing tune! :D

  2. classic No Doubt. I like that they’re not afraid to get a tad bit weird with the intro and outro.

  3. I can’t really tell what I think. First time through it just seems to long. I would’ve liked something more to the point, but we will see what the rest of the CD sounds like!

  4. That wasn’t bad. It does have me intrigued as to what else they have in store, since No Doubt has had a history of not releasing the really big hit of the album till the second or third single.

  5. did they forget how to play ska?

  6. Wow, how do three guys play a synthesizer at the same time?

  7. The 90′s battle of the day goes to No Doubt. Green Day can suck it till tomorrow

  8. I’m hella positive for real.

  9. the chinese democracy of MY generation!!!! :D :D :D #YOLO

  10. I thought it sounded a little too much like a Gwen Stefani song and not quite enough like a No Doubt song. That’s just my opinion, though.

  11. No Doubt–they were the most okay of the bands who were just okay…AND NOW THEY’RE BACK AND MORE OKAY THAN EVER BEFORE!
