Yesterday Fergie released a new single, and now another singer who broke off from a popular band to release a single successful solo album eight years ago has emerged from a long silence: Gwen Stefani.

Like Fergie, Stefani hasn’t released anything since. 2014: the year 2006 came back.

Stefani has recently taken a star turn appearing as a singing coach and judge on the seventh season of The Voice, alongside Pharrell Williams. The two are apparently also working together off-screen, recording new songs for what is reportedly Stefani’s next solo album at a studio in Miami.

Stefani’s manager Irving Azoff claims, per The Hollywood Reporter, that 44-year-old Stefani will perform the lead single from the project on The Voice at some point during the upcoming season.

It would be the No Doubt frontwoman’s third solo release. Her most profitable came with 2004’s Love. Angel. Music. Baby., which spawned the hit singles “Hollaback Girl” and “Rich Girl” that placed in the top 10 in the country. Then came 2006’s The Sweet Escape, which again managed two top 10 hits in “Wind It Up” and the title track.

Apparently Stefani is also working on new material for No Doubt, who last released an album in 2012.
