After two previous single releases this year where Gwen Stefani has sung with other people she has decided it's high time that she released something solely of her own. (Aside from a nineteen song festive covers album, 'You Make It Fell Like Christmas', released a little too early back in October) 'Let Me Reintroduce Myself' is Gwen's latest solo single and follows on from her Country duet with partner Blake Shelton, 'Happy Anywhere', and more recently her Mark Ronson mixed collaboration with Dua Lipa on 'Physical'.
The No Doubt star, who at the age of 51 must surely have some Benjamin Button genes cursing through her veins to look as good as she does, makes a welcome return with her latest solo single. 'Let Me Reintroduce Myself' is a summer scented pop song in keeping with her more familiar style. It's laid back rhythm has a Caribbean vibe splicing Reggae and pop effortlessly as Stefani sings over the top.
"This is not a comeback" she stresses, "I'm recycling me". "I'm still the original, original old me" Stefani sings as she either tries to convince herself or just point out to the rest of us that she's never really gone away, still has oodles of style, charisma and talent and that she shouldn't be over looked.
"I feel good, I feel great, I feel alright" she affirms as the song plays on. With a hint of 'The Tide Is High' in it's make up the track is likeable enough and very radio friendly.
