Gwen Stefani has released her first pop single in four years, "Let Me Reintroduce Myself." During that time, the singer has been busy dropping festive tunes and collaborations with the likes of Dua Lipa and her fiance, Blake Shelton. She has also been an on-and-off coach on NBC's The Voice and performed in her own Las Vegas residency, "Just A Girl," at the Zappos Theater for a couple of years.
The "What You Waiting For?" hitmaker's long-awaited new song was released globally on December 7 and has already created a buzz online.
Stefani rose to fame as the frontwoman of the 1990s band No Doubt. Their signature sound featured a lot of reggae and ska influence, which has continued to inspire the songstress's solo work.
"It's a fun, lighthearted song, because I got inspired and hopefully to bring a little bit of joy," she said.
"The idea was to write a song that had a bit of a nostalgic feeling to it, so I think musically it reminds you of back in the day, going back to where I started musically which was with ska and reggae. I'm still the same me but here's something a little bit new in case you feel like hearing a little bit more of me."
Niccoli, who also produced the song, stated on Instagram that Stefani's brother and former No Doubt member, Eric Stefani, can be heard playing the keys while the band's touring and session members, Gabrial McNair and Stephen Bradley, play the horns and Hammond.
