Fergie fans hoping to find Double Dutchess underneath the Christmas tree will have to wait just a liiiittle bit longer for the album's release. But in a new interview with Lisa Paige of PopCrush Nights, the "M.I.L.F. $" singer insisted her sophomore LP will be very much worth the wait.

In the chat — featured above — Fergie broke down everything from new musical inspirations to memories of past projects, and said that she's completely satisfied with her new material. So why has it taken so long to unveil? Welp, with a husband and kid in tow (Fergie gave birth to son Axl in 2013), time has had a habit of slipping through her fingers, she said.

"I just want to get things right and I just don't want a whole bunch of random songs out there," she said. "I just wanted it to really mean something 'cause it's my second [solo] album."

And fans who were fond of Ferg's work with the Black Eyed Peas or 2006's The Dutchess can count on a similar type of miscellany — ballads, hip-hop and reggae will all be featured on Double Dutchess. Where the new album will differ, Fergie said, is the level of intimacy it reaches.

"It's totally different, because with the Peas, we're all just partying and going to clubs," she said. "[But] with this, there's some of that on the album, but there's also that part where it's like, I get to open the pages of my journal and let people really in."

"It's like serving a meal, I didn't just want it to be one thing," she added.
