专辑名称：The Sweet Escape
新专辑取名The Sweet Escape，包括了与Akon合作的专辑同名歌曲Sweet Escape，以及第一支单曲Wind It Up等。制作人方面，除了刚才提到的Akon，还有Outkast成员André 3000，Swizz Beatz，Sean Garrett，Nellee Hooper，No Doubt贝斯手Tony Kanal以及Keane的键盘手Tim Rice-Oxley等，这个制作阵容是不是让你看的眼花缭乱？与Gwen的首张个人专辑Love. Angel. Music. Baby不同，这张新专辑将贴上唱片警告标(Parental Advisory)。
说说这支单曲Wind It Up的情况，不知道是不是最近比较流行从经典歌曲里采样，大家应该知道说唱歌手Jibbs从美国民歌里取材，Kanye West以前也这么乾过。Gwen在这首Wind It Up里加入了音乐之声的经典旋律。但是国外有评论说这首歌曲的节奏与Hollaback Girl有些像，像不像大家自己去听吧。歌曲里唱到了Gwen自己的服装品牌L.A.M.B，感觉有广告嫌疑。
Gwen Stefani has released more details about her second solo album, the follow-up to 2004's Love. Angel. Music. Baby. The singer's latest effort, The Sweet Escape, will be released Dec. 5 and is led by the first single, the Neptunes-produced "Wind it Up." Stefani also collaborated with Akon, No Doubt's Tony Kanal, Nellee Hooper, Sean Garrett, Swizz Beatz, Dave Stewart, and Keane's Tim Rice-Oxley for this project. "This album is surprisingly different than the last one," Stefani said in a statement. "I started recording it last year before Kingston was born and it's definitely evolved over the last year. The dance sound is very 'now.' It's modern...not so retro." Stefani will kick off a U.S. tour in April 2007. Dates have not yet been announced.
This is the album you've all been waiting for - the follow-up to the million selling 'Love. Angel, Music. Baby' is finally here.
