The lead single from Black and White Rainbows
, "Mad Love" was released on February 6, 2017. It was the first Bush album to be made available after Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale
divorced No Doubt singer Gwen Stefani after 14 years of marriage. The album title reflects Rossdale's new start. He explained to UK newspaper The Daily Star
: "The title is poetic. Think of the cocoon phase of a butterfly, or the phoenix rising from the ashes. Each end is also a beginning."
