A video for "It's My Life" has been shot by famed photographer David LaChapelle.

Interscope has penciled in a Nov. 25 release for a bonanza of No Doubt items. As previously reported, the group will issue "Singles 1992-2003," augmented with a cover of Talk Talk's "It's My Life"; the "Rock Steady Live" DVD; and a limited-edition four-disc boxed set dubbed "Boom Box." A video for "It's My Life" has been shot by famed photographer David LaChapelle.

"Singles" does not run in chronological order, as it opens with No Doubt's 1995 breakthrough single "Just a Girl" and closes with "Trapped in a Box," drawn from its self-titled 1992 debut. The set naturally includes the group's three biggest hits: "Don't Speak" (the first album cut to hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Airplay chart, 1996), "Underneath It All" featuring Lady Saw (No. 3 Hot 100, 2002) and "Hey Baby" (No. 5 Hot 100, 2002).

"Rock Steady Live" was taped last year at the Long Beach (Calif.) Arena, and sports 21 songs in total plus interviews and behind-the-scenes footage.

Of perhaps most interest to collectors is "Boom Box," which gathers "Singles," a DVD of the 1997 VHS release "Live in the Tragic Kingdom," a DVD of 15 music videos and a disc of 17 B-sides, rarities and remixes. Highlights of the latter disc include "I Throw My Toys Around" with Elvis Costello, "New Friend" featuring Bucaneer and a remix of "A Real Love Survives" featuring Ms. Dynamite.

While No Doubt is enjoying a break, frontwoman Gwen Stefani is recording her Interscope solo debut with assistance from No Doubt bassist Tony Kanal, members of Outkast and producers such as Damon Elliott and Dallas Austin.
