Busy pop star GWEN STEFANI still plans to make another album with her band NO DOUBT - but they have to wait for her life to calm down first.

Since the group last recorded, Stefani has released and promoted a solo album, LOVE ANGEL MUSIC BABY, and a No Doubt greatest hits LP.

But she vows she will return to the studio: "That's the plan. I really didn't know that it would take so long to make Love Angel Music Baby. Then we ended up putting a greatest hits record out and that took up time. We went on tour. It was amazing.

"I never intended for this record to take so long, but I want to ride this wave while it's out there."
