Gwen Stefani’s third solo album has been in the works for over a year, and part of the reason for that wait can be chalked up to the fact that she couldn’t find a lead single for the project. The twofer of “Baby Don’t Lie” and “Spark The Fire” fizzled in 2014; “Used To Love You” was a solid post-marriage ballad, but not the type of song to lead a long-awaited project.
“Make Me Like You” is that song. Stefani’s new single, released on Thursday night (Feb. 11), is refreshingly fizzy and sounds perfect for springtime listening. Gwen, at long last, has found her bop.
Listen to the track above and prepare for This Is What The Truth Feels Like, which has been bestowed with a Mar. 18 release date. Meanwhile, Stefani’s No Doubt bros are soldiering on without the singer—and with AFI frontman Davey Havok.
