'The Voice' coach has a catchy new single.
Gwen unveiled her new solo single "Baby Don't Lie" on Monday, and it's just as catchy as we'd hoped! But with co-writers/producers Benny Blanco, Ryan Tedder and Noel Zancanella on board, we'd expect nothing less.
The song is Stefani's first solo effort since her 2006 album Sweet Escape, although her band No Doubt made a triumphant return to music in 2012 with Push and Shove.

The publication also reports that Stefani is simultaneously working on new material for another No Doubt album.

Gwen Stefani's new solo single "Baby Don't Lie" is out, and it's running all over the place. At first it threatens to be a gum-chewing M.I.A. hip-hop hybrid. Then it soars straight into Ellie Goulding dance-pop territory, and then mid-tempo love song with a hiccup at the end, plus a OneRepublic counter-melody on the tags after the chorus. Then Iggy Azalea's influence rears its head. Well, at least the whiff of OneRepublic can be partly to all of the co-songwriters: Ryan Tedder, who worked with Benny Blanco and Noel Zancanella to write this sonic Frankenstein. Tedder leads OneRepublic and Blanco -- who produced on OneRepublic's latest album "Native" -- could be a solid lead as to why anybody would ape the slack-voweled sounds of Iggy Azalea: he co-wrote pop-laden "Black Widow" for the Aussie rapper. Zancanella also co-wrote and co-produced for OneRepublic, and was behind Ellie Goulding's "Burn, »

They saved the best for last in "The Voice" battle rounds Monday night. Coach Blake Shelton called the duel between Luke Wade and Griffin one of the best he had ever seen on the NBC reality show. Unfortunately for him, they were both members of Pharrell Williams' team. -Break- Shelton got the last laugh, though, because he used one of his only steals to take Griffin. Williams had chosen Wade as his battle winner a few moments earlier after they finished performing the Paul McCartney classic "Maybe I'm Amazed." These were the first of several battle rounds over the next few episodes after concluding all of the blind auditions last week. For this seventh season, the returning coaches are country star Shelton, winner of seasons two, three, and four, and Adam Levine (Maroon 5), champ of seasons one and five.

"She's got a very delicate voice so you have to choose the correct song for Steph.
"She's one of those artists that's so distinctive [that] if you get it wrong, you really get it wrong."
Cheryl added: "It's a good wake-up call for me and her."
