Fergie "would love" to record a new album with the Black Eyed Peas.
It was rumoured that the 42-year-old singer had turned her back on the 'Where Is The Love?' hitmakers - also comprised of Will.i.am, apl.de.ap and Taboo - for good in June, but she's adamant that's not the case and they've never "officially" split.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper's 'Bizarre Life' podcast, she said: " I've never left The Black Eyed Peas. We've never broken up officially, I guess we're just on a break. We're family. They're like my work family. That's for ever.
"Honestly, I would have loved to be able to do my album in one tenth of the time, do a Black Eyed Peas album in that same time, tour both, have another child. There's just not enough hours in the day."
And, although she has a little gap in her schedule following the release of her second studio album 'Double Dutchess' in September, the blonde beauty has set herself the hard task of creating a music video for every single on her compilation.
The 'Glamorous' hitmaker said previously: "It's a labour of love. I've always been a visual [person, so I was like 'F**l it, let's do a video for every song.'"
Fergie was recording her album in the middle of splitting with her husband Josh Duhamel, with whom she has four-year-old son Axl, but, despite the heartache she was feeling at the time, she found the whole process quite "therapeutic."
She explained" "It's therapeutic and I really want to feel something. Not just a little bit, I like to go big - go big or go home when it comes to emotion. Basically that goes into everything I do."
