Gwen Stefani Says "Let Me Reintroduce Myself" On New Track

Gwen Stefani started the year with a foray into country music, and is ending 2020 by returning to her ska and reggae roots. The singer just dropped her new track "Let Me Introduce Myself," a fun retro-sounding bop (and by retro I only mean the early 2000s).

Back in July, Stefani released a pair of country duets, "Nobody But You" and "Happy Anywhere," with her fiancé Blake Shelton. After stepping out of her comfort zone for a little southern flair, she wasn't sure where to head next.

“Just coming off of doing two singles with Blake in country-land -- that was unexpected and super fun, and put me into another genre that I wasn’t expecting to bounce into, and motivated me,” she told Billboard. “I knew I was going to be on The Voice this season, and I wanted to try and write some new music, and this is one of the things that was born out of that.”

Stefani gave her debut performance of "Let Me Reintroduce Myself" on The Voice last Monday, the reality singing competition on which her fiancé stars as a judge. Shelton was also the one to pick the song as Stefani's first single, what she has now revealed as a teaser for a forthcoming album.

“I just had this lightbulb moment,” Stefani said. “I was like, ‘I really want to investigate where I started in music -- the reggae and ska, when I first fell in love with music, when it defined who I was. I really want to do happy music, that’s where it all started.’ Once I got into that mode, it was like a wildfire, because every person I went in with, we were just so inspired and excited to be doing that kind of music.”
