No Doubt Dance Like Mad in Second ‘Settle Down’ Behind-the-Scenes Clip
No Doubt really have embraced the digital age as they mount their return from a nearly decade-long hibernation. The band offered up its fourth webisode, which was also Part 2 of the behind-the-scenes footage for their new video for ‘Settle Down.’ The whole shebang premieres on Monday, July 16 on E!, so mark those calendars, No Doubters.
Part 1 focused on Day 1 of the shoot, so Part 2 focused on Day 2, which makes logistical sense. The first BTS clip featured the band dancing while perched atop Mack trucks. The second shows them dancing on the ground like mad, especially our gal Gwen Stefani. The cameras are in her face while she rocks out with dancers and fans, looking as fabulous as ever. Few women can pull off two extreme looks — red lips and platinum blonde hair — at once, but since the ‘Hollaback Girl’ is so strikingly beautiful, she makes it work.
She acknowledges that performing atop the cars was hard for her, and she felt less connected to the song. The second day of shooting allowed her to be more focused and to get to the bottom of what the song is about. She looks adorbs when she dances, doesn’t she?
Bassist Tony Kanal also reveals that the country line dance in the vid was his idea. No, really. There is a country line dance during a reggae-influenced song! There’s no doubt — natch! — that No Doubt are back and in fine form. The new album ‘Push and Shove’ drops Sept. 25.
