The pre-order goes lives today HERE.
Feeding the appetites of rabid fans worldwide, she unveils not one, but two new songs from the album to hint at what’s in-store. Opener “Hungry” [feat. Rick Ross] produced by Yonni and JP Did This and co-produced by Donut, sees Fergie ravenously devour a beat before a sexy, gothic chorus accompanied by a classic Ricky Rozay cameo. See video below. The slick cinematic video is directed by the Brazilian artist Bruno Ilogti.
Meanwhile, “You Already Know” [feat. Nicki Minaj], listen below produced by will.i.am bobs and weaves a familiar sample through the explosive interplay between two of music’s hottest leading ladies and a stadium-size chant. Watch this space for new video coming soon.
Check out the full tracklisting:
About the release, Fergie comments, “It’s finally here! I’ve spent a long time—many late, late nights—writing and working to make Double Dutchess perfect. I wanted to make a visual experience too, because there’s a special story here that’s really close to my heart. This is my vision. I feel like it truly represents who I am on every level, and I hope you love it as much as I do. I’ll see everyone on the road soon!”
Next up, she makes her first live appearance supporting the record with a headlining set at Rock In Rio in Brazil, September 16, 2017. The concert will be livestreamed on the new LiveXLive Digital Music Network.
Fergie is back with Double Dutchess + Double Dutchess: Seeing Double.
You might know a thing or two about Fergie…
You might know she’s an eight-time GRAMMY® Award-winner. You might know her iconic 2006 solo debut, The Dutchess, moved over 8 million albums and over 30 million tracks around the globe. You might know all of the words to Billboard Hot 100 #1 hits like “London Bridge,” “Glamorous,” and “Big Girls Don’t Cry” or Top 5 smashes “Fergalicious” and “Clumsy.” You might know she led The Black Eyed Peas to the pop pantheon with sales of 35 million records and 60 million tracks over the course of four multi-platinum offerings. For all you might know (or might think you know) about Fergie, you’re going to learn a whole hell of a lot more on her second full-length and first visual album for her own label Dutchess Music—Double Dutchess.
Opening Dutchess Music, aligning with BMG for distribution, and signing herself, you’re going to learn that she’s a #boss surrounded by moguls like Maybach Music Group founder Rick Ross. You’re going to learn that she’s a high fashion assassin whose vision has seduced everyone from Italian Vogue creative director Giovanni Bianco to C.R. Fashion book visionary Carine Roitfeld. You’re going to learn she has a wicked sense of humor that’s right at home in smoked-out late night claymation macabre. You’re going to learn she’s the O.G. runway-slaying sex symbol. Free, focused, and fucking shit up again, Double Dutchess shows every side of Fergie—the superstar, the visual artist, the creative director, the label head, the fashion icon, the wife, and, she’ll tell you most importantly, “mom.”
These 13 tracks tell a story of transformation. It’s not so much caterpillar into butterfly as it is Princess Diana into Wonder Woman, and it starts with the one-two punch of “Hungry” (feat. Rick Ross) and “You Already Know” (featuring Nicki Minaj).
