Gwen Stefani has a brand-new single that nods to her past.
“Let Me Reintroduce Myself” recalls the ska-punk sound of her early days with No Doubt, and in the self-referential tune, Gwen sings, “Let me reintroduce myself/’Cause you forgot/no I’m not records on your shelf/I’m still the original old me/So let me reintroduce myself.”
Gwen will perform the song tonight for the first time on NBC’s The Voice. In a statement, she says, “This song is a way of saying I’m back with new music. It’s a fun, lighthearted song, because I got inspired and hopefully to bring a little bit of joy.”
“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,” she adds. “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.”
This is Gwen’s return to pop this year, after scoring two country hits with her fiance, Blake Shelton, and releasing some new holiday songs.
