No Doubt Give Behind-the-Scenes Look at ‘Settle Down’ Video


When No Doubt last released an album, social networking didn’t exist or have the impact it does today. The band has embraced the digital age upon its return, parsing out digital content and sharing teasers and behind-the-scenes footage from their video for ‘Settle Down,’ the first single from ‘Push and Shove,’ which drops Sept. 25. The band shared footage from the first day of the two-day video shoot. Here’s a hint: It features lots of Mack trucks.

So what’s the concept? “We’re all driving separate trucks and we all arrive at this party and we start playing together and people are like, ‘Yeah!,’” said drummer Adrian Young, offering a little insight into the plot and theme.

Diva and frontwoman Gwen Stefani reveals that she hoofed it — well, drove — all the way from Harajuku, which is her favored district in Tokyo, so much so that she named one of her diffusion clothing lines after it. Even though she loves the Far East (and had a two-album solo career detour), her heart pulls her back to the band. Art imitating life? Oh yeah!

Young also declares that the dance hall Jamaican groove that the band has long utilized is indeed present in the song. This BTS footage does allow you to hear snippets of the song, which is upbeat and laced with Jamaican grooves.

“It represents lyrically where I am at,” Stefani said. “Lyrically, it summarizes the past couple years.” She declined to go further, since she said it’s personal. Interpret as you wish, No Doubters!

For his “acting” in the vid, bassist and Stefani’s former lover Tony Kanal applied the less is more philosophy, and wants an Oscar nomination!

‘Settle Down’ will premiere on E! on Monday, July 16 at 8PM. Don’t miss it.
