No Doubt: No album, no surprises

No Doubt's Adrian Young has been talking to MTV News with the surprising announcement:

No Doubt Drummer Says New LP Won't Be Ready This Year

Really? With fourteen whole days to go? Surely you're kidding?

Actually, it turns out he means next year, which is slightly more noteworthy.

Young also speculates on how the world has changed since the last time he was on a record people were going to buy:
During No Doubt's hiatus, there have been many changes in the music industry, some brought about by the Internet. Young feels it's an interesting time for the band to release an album.

"On one level, it's scary to watch successful bands put out records and maybe they were less of a success than their past records, but it's also pretty awesome to watch any band put out a CD with all the different Internet accessibility," he said. "It's a little daunting to put out a record for a successful group. I don't know what's going to happen. We're going to see."

Why, yes, what could possibly be more awesome than, uh, all that different accessibility? I mean, seriously: you can get it on your phone and everything. Literally mind-blowing.

Man, that's cruel. There was me thinking I could get my next fix of watered-down ska punk within mere weeks.
