After basically admitting that she's been working on a new solo album in two separate interviews, now industry sources have confirmed that a new record from Fergie is on the way, and a release date for the former Black Eyed Peas singer's effort is set for 2015.
According to Billboard, music industry sources are stating that Fergie has, in fact, been working hard in the studio on a follow-up to The Dutchess, and has been collaborating with the likes of Mike WILL Made-It. Will is best known for his work on Miley Cyrus' 2013 rebirth Bangerz. He's also worked with big name artists such as Kanye West, 2 Chainz, Rihanna and Drake.
The new Fergie album news falls in line with 2014 interviews the pop star has given to both Ryan Seacrest and Chelsea Handler.
"The Dutchess was comprised of songs from a seven-year period; a lot of people don't know that. I've been writing down my ideas, I've been in my little cave, my creative cave, and the ideas come when they come," she said. "So, when I do come out with my album, I'm going to be really proud of it," she told Seacrest in January.
She echoed those statements just last month, telling Handler that her social life was based solely in the recording studio.
The new Fergie album will be her first solo album release since 2006, when she dropped The Dutchess. The fan-favorite album spawned such fiery singles like "London Bridge," "Glamorous" and "Clumsy." It's also the album that helped to add "Fergalicious" into the pop culture lexicon, so we should all be very thankful.
Fergie last released solo material last year, dropping "A Little Party Never Killed Nobody" for The Great Gatsby soundtrack.
