Gwen Stefani debut new song Let Me Reintroduce Myself!
Global superstar Gwen Stefani releases her new reggae-tinged single Let Me Reintroduce Myself. She will debut the song with a performance on tonight’s episode of The Voice, airing at 8 PM ET/7 PM CT, where she is now in her fifth season as a coach on NBC’s four-time Emmy Award-winning musical competition series.
Recorded in quarantine and co-written with relentless hitmaker Ross Golan alongside rising songwriter/producer Luke Niccoli, Let Me Reintroduce Myself finds Gwen Stefani reminding fans of what she does best: create vibrant, uplifting music that is real and honest to who she is as an artist.
Musically, the song is a full-circle moment, with an instrumental that nods to her roots with the ska-punk band No Doubt. Bass-heavy beats and breezy acoustic guitars course under and around her laid-back vocals, as she confidently asserts her space in the modern musical universe: “In case you forgot – no, I’m not records on your shelf”. The single also offers a sly callback: “I already gave you bananas,” Gwen Stefani sings playfully, nodding to the cheerleader chant on her 2005 Pharrell Wiilliams produced No. 1 hit, Hollaback Girl.
“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. 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,” says singer.
Let Me Reintroduce Myself caps off a busy year for Gwen Stefani. She had two top 10 hits on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart with fiancé Blake Shelton, Nobody But You and Happy Anywhere. Her holiday album, You Make It Feel Like Christmas, was just reissued with two new songs, including Ryan Tedder co-write Here This Christmas.
