Gwen Stefani will reunite with the producer behind “Used To Love You.”
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Stefani struck gold with her recent ballad “Used To Love You” after a string of duds from Pharrell Williams last year. She realized pouring her emotions into a song connected with fans in all the right ways, and went back to the drawing board.
“I’m literally writing like I’ve never written, I think ever. Every time I go in the studio — which I don’t have a lot of time in my life — so when I’ve gone in, every single time I have written a song,” Stefani said in a recent interview.
“I have close to ten songs, which doesn’t sound like a lot, but it’s over a very short amount of time. It’s never happened. So I am in a really good place for writing and I think that has a lot to do with being on the show last season and also just, I don’t know, just opening up and being on a journey to get to this point to be able to write again,” Stefani added. “I have never been in a place, where I’m like outside all my life, where all I want to do is get in the studio. It was always like a chore, like ‘Oh no I have to go to the studio, I am not going to be able to do it. What am I going to say?’ Like it’s an opposite, it’s like I gotta get in the studio. When is there time, you know? Every time I go, I know I’m going to have a song and every time I have a song I get to play it really loud in my car and it’s really fun.”
Stefani posted a snap from the studio today, saying “Making music w this weirdo.”
