Fergie Signs with BMG, Launches New Label Dutchess Music

BMG has entered into a worldwide partnership with the eight-time Grammy Award-winning, Multiplatinum artist Fergie and her newly formed record label Dutchess Music.

Double Dutchess will be the first full-length solo release since her 2006 Multiplatinum debut The Dutchess and new music is expected to begin its rollout towards the end of the summer.

Fergie shared this message with fans: “This new era, which includes starting my own label and creating a global partnership with BMG, is a dream come true. 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.” She continues, “BMG has such an incredible legacy in the music industry, and I look forward to working with their very experienced team to make new music, memories and magic!”

Zach Katz, BMG U.S. President Repertoire & Marketing, said, “Fergie is part of an elite group of talented artists who continue to evolve and redefine the meaning of originality. From her creativity and style to her stature in pop culture, simply put, there’s only one Fergie.”

Jon Cohen, BMG EVP Recorded Music, said, “What Fergie has put together with Double Dutchess is so inventive it redefines her as an artist. Her prolific output has already made our collaboration one of my most exciting times with BMG and we can’t wait for its reveal.”

Fergie is managed by David Sonenberg and William Derella for DAS Communications Ltd.
