Gwen Stefani announces album release date
Gwen Stefani shared the track list for her third solo album Tuesday night and now the record, titled This is What the Truth Feels Like, has a release date: March 18. The No Doubt frontwoman also announced Wednesday that she’ll be collaborating with Target to produce the first ever live music video during a commercial break from Monday’s Grammy ceremony.
“Target has an incredible legacy of creating unexpected moments in music, and I’m thrilled to be partnering with them to create my new music video on live television next Monday,” Stefani said in a statement.

The 46-year-old singer will release “Make Me Like You” on Friday, and Sophie Muller will direct the video for the single on live television three days later. The filming process will take viewers through multiple sets and costume changes as they happen and feature “special surprises,” according to the release. Fans will be able to follow the experience on Periscope, Facebook Life, and Snapchat, and the video will be available on Vevo later Monday night.
This is What the Truth Feels Like will be available for preorder Feb. 12, and the Target edition of the album includes four additional tracks: “Rocket Ship,” “Getting Warmer,” “Obsessed,” and “Splash.”
The news comes after Stefani spoke about scrapping an entire album she had worked on with hitmaker Benny Blanco last year. “It didn’t feel right,” she told EW in October. “I didn’t feel fulfilled. That record with Benny was done that way because I had just given birth and had just started on The Voice and felt like I should do something in music, but what was I going to do? There wasn’t enough time. So I tried to make a record where I was just kind of involved — which is how a lot of people do it, but it didn’t work for me.”
