Gwen Stefani fans must be going bananas (B-A-N-A-N-A-S), because the singer is getting ready to drop her first solo album in 10 years. Stefani recently revealed that her new album, This Is What the Truth Feels Like, is due out on March 18. To top it off, she’ll film a live music video during a Grammys commercial break for one of the tracks, Make Me Like You.

The album will feature Used to Love You, the first of the new songs to be released, as well as Make Me Like You and Misery. Based on the track list, it looks like listeners should get ready for heartbreak. There are numerous tracks that seem poised to tug on our heartstrings, including the aforementioned, Red Flag, and Me Without You. Stefani is coming off her divorce from ex-husband and Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale, and we expect the emotional roller coaster to have influenced her work.

Stefani gave fans a preview of what’s to come when she tweeted out the track list for This Is What the Truth Feels Like. There are 12 songs, with an additional four on the deluxe Target exclusive edition.

The singer and Voice judge also revealed via Twitter that she’ll be in the first live music video during a Grammy’s commercial break with her song Make Me Like You.

Filming a music video during an awards show’s commercial break is an ambitious and exciting undertaking, especially considering that it’s never been done before. It will be “the first music video created on live television,” according to Rolling Stone, and it doesn’t sound like any corners will be cut; Stefani will have costume changes and even use multiple sets — all in a four-minute span.

Make Me Like You will be released on February 12, and the music video will be filmed on February 15. This Is What the Truth Feels Like drops on March 18.
