Gwen Stefani will release her second solo album, "The Sweet Escape," on December 5. The new album is the follow-up to 2004's quadruple-platinum Love. Angel. Music. Baby., which included the hits "Hollaback Girl" and "What You Waiting For?" The first single from "The Sweet Escape" is The Neptunes-produced "Wind It Up."

"This album is surprisingly different than the last one. 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," says the Grammy-winning singer-songwriter.

Simultaneously, Gwen will release the concert DVD Harajuku Lovers Live, filmed during shows in her hometown of Anaheim, Calif. Gwen will embark on a U.S. tour in April 2007.
