Gwen Stefani‘s return to the solo music scene is increasingly showing promise with the release of a empowering new song entitled Shine, above, recorded for the soundtrack of comedy film Paddington – out January 16th – and produced by Pharrell Williams.

Williams and Stefani have collaborated on past hits like the memorable  Hollaback Girl and have been working on new material for Gwen’s upcoming third studio album, including the two new singles Baby Don’t Lie and Spark The Fire. On Shine, Stefani returns to her signature sound to sing about life and “being there for the team.”
