from nodoubt.com and CDNOW

The video for "X-Girlfriend" (or is it "Ex-Girlfriend"?) was shot yesterday in Los Angeles and fifty lucky fans were able to be in the video if they had emailed their name and number.

After considerable song-swapping and other such rearranging, mostly due to an abundance of new material, the members of No Doubt have settled on a final track listing for their upcoming fourth album, Return of Saturn, which will be released by Interscope Records on April 11.

The first single and video from the 14-song album will be "Ex-Girlfriend," which is already getting some alternative radio play. The follow-up track will be "Simple Kind of Life," one of two songs on the new album written entirely by singer Gwen Stefani.

Track listing for Return of Saturn is as follows:

1. "Ex-Girlfriend"
2. "Simple Kind of Life"
3. "Bathwater"
4. "Six Feet Under"
5. "Magic's in the Makeup"
6. "Artificial Sweetener"
7. "Marry Me"
8. "New"
9. "Too Late"
10. "Comforting Lie"
11. "Suspension Without Suspense"
12. "Staring Problem"
13. "Home Now"
14. "Dark Blue"

January 21, 2000: Wedding! (part 2)
from Kerrang magazine (jan 2000)

"No Doubt drummer Adrian Young has done the decent thing and got himself married. The man who likes to take to the stage in his birthday suit and wiggle his penis is now officially spoken for! Adrian proposed to his girlfriend at the Filmore in San Francisco, and a few months later, on January 17th, the couple held an intimate (well a few hundred people) wedding in the back garden of their home in Long Beach, California.

The band`s long-awaited new album "The Return of Saturn" is now due for a UK release in April. Among the tracks set to feature are "Bathwater" and "Ex-Girlfriend". You might take the latter title to reflect singer Gwen Stefani`s split with Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale - were it not for the rumours that they`re back together. Maybe they were inspired by Adrian`s wedding. Kerrang! wishes both couples all the best."
