As a child, I loved many things — Gwen Stefani included. Gwen hasn’t released a solo album since my childhood, her last one being 2006’s hip-hop-infused The Sweet Escape.
Since then, Stefani has gone on to release multiple fragrances, a clothing line, and even a record with her band No Doubt. But there’s been no mention of a solo album. It wasn’t until nearly a decade after The Sweet Escape that Gwen dove back into the solo realm, releasing a string of singles that ultimately led to this year’s LP This Is What the Truth Feels Like, a surprisingly fresh and nostalgic take from one of pop’s most eclectic singers.
In 2014, rumblings of a comeback for the singer were prominent. After giving birth to her third son, Apollo, Stefani landed a coaching gig on NBC’s singing competition reality show The Voice.
After a week off, the Jukebox returns for another exciting installment!
Featuring 20 songs that are sure to have you singing along, this week’s playlist highlights The 1975 and their new album “I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It” (what a title, by the way), as Jake will have a review of it that will go up tomorrow. Be sure to come back and give that a read tomorrow!
Other artists this week include Everything Everything, HEALTH, and Gwen Stefani.
