‘I had my family break up and that took a while to transition into the next part of my life,’ she said referring to her split from Gavin Rossdale, 57, with whom she shares three sons. The Just a Girl singer also talked about putting her new music together, saying: ‘I also feel I was trying to really find the record. I started on one route of the style of music I wanted to do but then find it through living.

‘And a lot of time went by, so it’s been a couple of years and now I feel I’m in this really crazy zone where I’m writing the songs I wanted to write. It just kind of took a long time,’ she explained. The Rich Girl hitmaker also explained that she just needed some downtime as well, pointing out that she did a Las Vegas residency for two years, was on The Voice seven times and has a lot of kids.

Life moves on: 'Then the pandemic happened... but I still wanted to put something out. But then I got married [laughs], and when that happened, I felt I wanted to really be in that moment and not rush back to finish the album,' she explained

 

‘I have three boys and it’s hard to space it all out, it’s really hard. I mean, anyone that’s a mum would probably be like, “How does she do all of those things?” because it is impossible,’ she said. The Don’t Speak songstress shares Kingston, 17, Zuma, 14, and Apollo, nine, with her ex-husband.

New single: And her new single is about Shelton. 'He likes it,' she told the outlet without elaborating more on the Ol' Red singer's thoughts

 

‘So that’s why getting to this point where I actually get to put a little music out is exciting. I have had this new song for like two years! Time goes by so quickly. But here we are!’ And as for why she chose the U.K. for her first shows since her Las Vegas residency wrapped in 2021, it is pretty simple – it was the music London was putting out in the early 1980s.

‘The first music that I got into that started to build my identity as a human being was when my older brother brought home a Madness album,’ she said. ‘I know that Madness is huge in the UK, but in the US they had Our House and Must Be Love, but they were still underground in that whole scene.

‘And so that record led us into The Specials, The Selector, and everything from Bad Manners to UB40 and everything that we loved that set the tone for the music and our identity as human beings,’ she explained.
