After a decade-long hiatus, No Doubt is back, and they brought the music from their upcoming album Push and Shove to ABC's Good Morning America on Friday as part of the show's Summer Concert Series.
Gwen Stefani told ABC's Sam Champion and Lara Spencer that the new album -- the first since the band's 2001 disc Rock Steady -- was inspired by her feelings of being overwhelmed by responsibility.
"It was really hard to try to find the time with those two little bunny rabbits that I made," Gwen said, referring to her sons Kingston and Zuma. "I would do that all day and then show up and write songs in this little window of time and it took a long time and it was a real big effort, but totally worth it."
As for the band's new single, "Settle Down," Gwen explained, "The subject is exactly what I just described to you -- just trying to make it all work and trying to figure it out."
Undoubtedly, the band's dynamic has changed from when they first started 26 years ago. "Our backstage party room that used to have a deejay and bar is now a romper room for kids," said bassist Tony Kanal, who recently welcomed a baby daughter, Coco Reese Lakshmi Kanal, with longtime girlfriend actress Erin Lokitz.
No Doubt is set to release Push and Shove on September 25.
