It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything new from the Black Eyed Peas frontwoman, but all of that is about to change very shortly. According to WWD, Fergie was in Paris over the weekend shooting the cover and packaging her long-awaited second solo album. Shot by photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot, this will be her first album in nearly nine years.
Fergie was also set to shoot a music video in Paris with creative director Giovanni Bianco (Madonna), and is scheduled to film another video in London later this week.
After becoming a mother and taking a step back from music, she described her comeback album as “a modern vision” of her 2006 debut The Dutchess. “I went on two tours with the Peas, since my last solo album, all over the world,” Fergie told GulfNews last year. “And, you know, dove into the electro scene, but coming from hip-hop-pop origins, and bringing some of my love of rock and reggae. So very much a cornucopia of music. It’s the 2015 version of me.”
Her solo sophomore LP is set to feature collaborations with hitmakers will.i.am, Mike WiLL Made-It, Rae Sremmurd, Charlie Puth, Toby Gad, and Nicki Minaj. The album is slated for a tentative March release, which will fall in line with the singer’s upcoming birthday.
