Wind It Up
Gwen Stefani will release her second solo album, The Sweet Escape, on December 5, 2006. The new album is the follow-up to 2004's quadruple-platinum Love. Angel. Music. Baby., which included the hits "Hollaback Girl" and "What You Waiting For?"
The first single from The Sweet Escape is The Neptunes-produced "Wind It Up." The video will be directed by longtime collaborator Sophie Muller. Other contributors to the album include Akon, Tony Kanal, Nellee Hooper, Sean Garrett, Swizz Beatz, Dave Stewart and Keane's Tim Rice-Oxley.
"This album is surprisingly different than the last one. I started recording it last year before Kingston was born and it's definitely evolved over the last year. The dance sound is very 'now.' It's modern.not so retro," says the Grammy-winning singer-songwriter.
Simultaneously, Gwen will release the concert DVD Harajuku Lovers Live, filmed during shows in her hometown of Anaheim, CA. The concert was also filmed by Sophie Muller.
Gwen will embark on a U.S. tour in April 2007.
