Today in nostalgic news comes two Gwen Stefani-related stories: One "Hella Good", the other, not so much...

In a press release from Universal Music Canada, it was announced that the singer's long-awaited third solo album (her first in almost 10 years), This Is What the Truth Feels Like will finally see its release on March 18th. The album is supported by singles, "I Used to Love You", and the newly released, "Make Me Like You", which came out earlier today:

Stefani will perform the Mattman & Robin-produced single this Monday at The Grammys. This performance will mark the "first music video ever created on live television", an experience sponsored by Target. Additionally, Target will sell exclusive editions of the album in the United States with 4 bonus tracks. However, fear not international Harajuku Girls and Boys, these tracks will be available on the deluxe edition for copies of the album outside of the States, along with an additional song, "Loveable".

Unfortunately, Gwen's focus on her solo career has caused a delay for the work of her band, No Doubt. However, it seems like her boys are done waiting, as they have just announced plans to unite with AFI's Davey Havok to form a new supergroup. According to Billboard, the band are already finished their album and are in the process of looking for a label to release it. Furthermore, the report claims that No Doubt will be carrying on with a new singer for the time being, although it is unclear if this is for recording or simply touring.

In an interview last February, Grammy-winning producer Cedric Gervais told us that he was in talks to have Stefani featured on one of his upcoming tracks, although nothing has been confirmed or released yet:
