Billboard – Gwen Stefani Needs You to ‘Slow Clap’ for Her Upcoming Single
A “Slow Clap” is required for Gwen Stefani’s latest announcement: Her new single is coming on Thursday.
Stefani giddies up for the single’s cover in her bedazzled and diamond-fringed cowgirl getup. A couple of Easter eggs, such as a boombox, basketball, alarm clock that reads 5:44, ice cream cone, cassette tape and bicycle, surround the iridescent star, some of which she’s already shown fans before.
The pop star teased her single on Monday with a picture of her inserting the “Slow Clap” cassette tape into a boombox, and on Sunday, Stefani posted a photo of an alarm clock with the time 5:44 on it.
No one is more excited to give her a round of applause than fiancé Blake Shelton — at least, according to some fan art. Stefani reposted fan-made graphics on her Instagram Story of a young Shelton cradling the “Slow Clap” cover art and another one of him sporting a dark-colored mullet while getting “Slow Clap” onto his desktop computer.
“Slow Clap” comes after her “not a comeback” single “Let Me Reintroduce Myself” that she released on Dec. 7 as her upcoming fifth album’s lead single, which paved the way for her return to the pop, ska and reggae sound that defined her ‘90s breakthrough as the leader of No Doubt.
She told Billboard shortly before the holiday season that she probably has “like 19 or 20 songs now, but I still want to go back in and write some more once we get through Christmas” for her new solo album following 2016’s This Is What the Truth Feels Like.
Retropop Magazine – Gwen Stefani appears to have new music on the way soon after teasing her new project, ‘Slow Clap’, on social media.
The former No Doubt star returned to the charts in December with Let Me Reintroduce Myself – the lead track from her forthcoming fifth solo LP.
While the hitmaker’s revealed few details about the project as a whole, she headed online on Monday (March 8) to hint that new music is on the way.
Alongside a clip of herself inserting a cassette tape into a boombox and pressing the play button, Gwen also posted a still shot of herself holding the cassette, clearly showing the title.
She captioned the post with a handful of emojis, including a tape, drum and clapperboard. It’s unclear whether ‘Slow Clap’ is the name of a song or album.
Following the post, fans have speculated that a new track could drop on Friday – following the release pattern of Let Me Reintroduce Myself. Gwen is also scheduled to perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in the US next Monday.
While a release date for the new album has yet to be announced, Gwen recently teased the record is coming “soon,” revealing: “I have all the songs. I wrote a song yesterday. I’m still writing.
“I’m going to write a song tomorrow and I’m just going to edit, you know, and get the best of the best.
“As soon as they say I can put it out. Soon.”
Gwen also told Zane Lowe on Apple Music the collection is all about her collaborations with her co-writers, including Julia Michaels, Justin Tranter, Busby, Greg Kurstin – along with her brother, Eric Stefani.
“I ended up calling my brother who I wrote Don’t Speak with, who was in No Doubt for nine years,” recalled the hitmaker. “And he actually is playing on this record.
“So we all went to his house and get our masks on – There was just this incredible crazy moment to have him play on the record as well…
“It’s when it’s something’s meant to be and you just, like I said, open your heart and follow it. I feel like it was just meant to happen.”
Eric played keyboards, piano and guitar in No Doubt from 1986–1995 and appeared on the group’s first three albums: No Doubt, The Beacon Street Collection and Tragic Kingdom.
