Preceding the release of her new album, Double Dutchess, Fergie has partnered with BMG to create label Dutchess Music. Fergie had previously been with Interscope for a decade.

Double Dutchess will be Fergie's first album since The Dutchess (2006).

Of the transition, Fergie said, “It’s an opportunity to release my solo music as well as develop and nurture new artists. This next chapter in my career will allow me the independence to evolve both as an artist and as a businesswoman.”

And BMG is equally enthusiastic about the collaboration.

The company's EVP of recorded music, Jon Cohen, said, “What Fergie has put together with Double Dutchess is so inventive it redefines her as an artist."
