Gwen Stefani is desperate to release another album before Christmas, because songs left over from her solo debut album LOVE ANGEL MUSIC BABY are so fashionable they will date if left until 2006.

The COOL singer was so impressed with the modern sound Pharrell Williams inspired in her music, she is anxious for the public to appreciate their collective genius as soon as possible.

She says, "I'm afraid if I wait too long before releasing it, it will be old."
