''The Sweet Escape'' is the second studio album by American recording artist Gwen Stefani, released in the United States on December 5, 2006 by Interscope Records. Having originally intended to return to No Doubt after her 2004 solo album ''Love. Angel. Music. Baby.'', Stefani decided to record a second album as a way to release some of the material left over from the ''L.A.M.B.'' writing sessions. The album musically resembles its predecessor while exploring more modern pop sounds. It was released to generally mixed reviews from contemporary music critics, receiving criticism for its strong similarities to ''L.A.M.B.''

It was preceded by the lead single "Wind It Up", which charted moderately across the world, and produced the follow-up single "The Sweet Escape", which proved more successful worldwide. ''The Sweet Escape'' reached the Canadian, U.S., and Australian top five and peaked inside the top twenty in the UK. The Sweet Escape Tour, started in April 2007, covered North America, Central America, Australia, Asia, and Europe. - Wikipedia
