no doubt push and shove

Push And ShoveNo Doubt‘s first album in a over a decade, won’t be released until September 25 so to hold us over for the next few weeks, Ryan Seacrest unveiled the LP’s title track. The Diplo-produced “Push And Shove” starts off exactly how you’d expect: like Tragic Kingdom merged with one of Major Lazer‘s island party bangers. But that’s just a warm-up for what happens at the hook. Check it out after the jump.

The ska-funk beat and Gwen Stefani‘s choppy rap-singing stop on a dime as the chorus morphs into something just shy of dubstep, with Stefani’s yearning vocals soaring over a smooth electro stomp. Bassist Tony Kanal told Rolling Stone it’s “our ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’” because of the song’s schizo genre-hopping. It’s an intriguing and enjoyable dichotomy of sounds, and it illustrates how the band has managed to pay homage to their ska roots while continuing to move forward into dance-pop territory.

Do you like the dual nature of the title track? Let us know in the comments below, or on Facebook and Twitter.

    The very most inopportune technique to misfire person is being placed correctly by it bearing in mind you may‘longer ask them to.
