During Stefani’s recent appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show, she revealed that Clarkson sending her new music throughout quarantine inspired her to create a new album of her own.
“i’m excited cause you’re doing new music,” Clarkson told Stefani.
“I’m doing new music and you are actually, me being jealous of you, made me want to do music because during the pandemic when you were texting me,” Stefani explained. “She was texting me all these amazing songs that she had written and i’m thinking how is she writing all of these songs. i’m like I have no time, like i’m cooking, cleaning like taking care of all these kids, we were in Oklahoma for 100 days, that’s like three meals a day, laundry, we’re living in literally a cabin, we have a cabin there, like a small cabin, it was a lot of fun to pause and be there but I was missing music.”
“Now, I have a record coming out, idk even know how, I feel like its coming down like magical,” Stefani added.
