Washington D.C. [U.S.A], Sept. 22 (ANI): Famous singer Fergie made her debut solo album, 'The Dutchess' in 2007, and after 11 years of waiting, she is coming up with her second solo album 'Double Dutchess'.

The 'Fergalicious' hit-maker has now revealed why it took 11 years to release her second album and the reason will surely melt your hearts.

In a recent interview, the singer-rapper told her role as a mother to Axl, her 4-year-old son with Josh Duhamel, her husband of eight years from whom she recently separated were the cause of delay, reports Entertainment Weekly.

She said, "I'm not going to sacrifice time with my child. That's just not going to happen. They can keep banging on my door [to release an album], but I'm like, "I'm with Axl. I'm off the grid! Bye!"

The singer also revealed that recording her second LP required a total re-organisation.

"It's totally different. Even the hours in the studio are different. Everything has to be so masterfully scheduled that it's crazy," explained Fergie.

But not all adjustments to the workflow that have come via motherhood have been a struggle.

The Grammy-award winning artist, shared, "Getting pregnant reset me. I just got on my game. People wanted me to release it and I was like, 'It's good, but I want it to be great."

She also stressed on the fact that inspired her to extend her creative reach.

"I've never taken this much responsibility. I'm executive-producing [the album] and I kept wanting to make it better and better. I wanted to strive for greatness," shared Fergie.

'Double Dutchess' arrives this Friday. (ANI)
