The album is titled This Is What the Truth Feels Like, and it's due out March 18.

Ugh, the bitch doesn't age

Update (2/12): Here's the standard, non-Target cover for the album.


1. Misery
2. You’re My Favorite

An exclusive Target deluxe edition – which you can pre-order here – includes four bonus tracks. Following "Used to Love You," the album's second single, "Make Me Like You," is set to impact mainstream radio next Tuesday, February 16. Stefani is also teaming up with Target to produce the video for the song, to be directed by Sophie Muller, who helmed several of Stefani's videos. The video will be acted out, filmed and broadcast live during a four-minute commercial break from the 58th Annual Grammy Awards on CBS on February 15, marking the first music video ever created on live television. Who else but the Queen?

I'm can't fucking wait! By the way, I'm so glad Gwen eventually came to her senses and scrapped an entire album in favor of new, fresh material – now we can just pretend that the god-awful singles "Baby Don't Lie" and "Spark the Fire" never happened. Following her tumultuous divorce from Gavin Rossdale and judging by lead single "Used to Love You," I was hoping the album would deliver some top-notch ballads in the vein of "Early Winter," "4 in the Morning" and "Don't Speak." Though I'm not yet sure how her recent relationship with Blake Shelton (yuck) might have affected the overall mood of the record.

As much as I adore No Doubt, I have such a deep connection to Gwen's solo music. It's a damn shame that some people judge her solo career based on her biggest hit "Hollaback Girl," which is far from her best song. Love. Angel. Music. Baby. and The Sweet Escape were both really important albums for pop culture, and her music was accompanied by such unique, striking visuals. I love how most of her iconic videos had a theme, with references ranging from Alice in Wonderland and The Sound of Music. Seriously, none of her contemporaries did what she was doing back then much like when fellow platinum-haired, Italian-American Lady Gaga burst onto the scene in 2008.

Are you guys as excited as I am? What do you expect of Gwen's upcoming masterpiece? Share your thoughts in the comment section, sluts.

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:

You Need to Hear This: Concrete Castles

I first heard of First to Eleven a few years ago thanks to the powers of social media. They are a talented young band straight out of my hometown (Erie, PA). Since I've first heard of them, First To Eleven - which primarily were a social media-based cover band - has revealed an original music incarnation, Concrete Castles.  No matter if they're covering songs or releasing their own music, one thing is evident: Concrete Castles is MASSIVELY talented. Anchored by Audra Miller's powerhouse vocals that are vaguely reminiscent of Hayley Williams, Concrete Castles demand your attention. Although they can fall in that sort of amorphous "indie pop" umbrella, I don't think their sound would be amiss on mainstream radio - top 40 or alternative.  "Wish I Missed U" - their debut album - came out earlier this September, and it's an enjoyable, invigorating listen that would probably make those who were raised on emo or fans of CHVRCHES feel at home. Hell, Anth
