Will.i.am has announced that Black Eyed Peas are releasing a follow-up album to their 2010 offering The Beginning.
The 39-year-old, who has been promoting his TV show The Voice in Britain, also said that upon his return to the US, he will resume work with Fergie on the album. He feels the material is going to be better than ever, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
"Fergie is making an album too though. I get with Fergie right when I land. I think all this week I'm working with Fergie and we are finishing Fergie's stuff. Fergie's stuff is going to be awesome as well," Will.i.am told Capital FM.
The Black Eyed Peas are reportedly also planning to reunite later this year to mark their 20th anniversary.
Comprising Fergie, Will.i.am, Apl.de.ap and Taboo, the group has been on hiatus since 2011, but is now working together in the studio on follow-up to 2010 album, The Beginning, reported contactmusic.com.
"We’re all geared up and excited for the next year. We are recording now," said Will.i.am. The news comes a few months after the singer pledged the My Humps hitmakers would only get back together for something amazing and unique. "We’re doing some configuration as to what we’d be doing as the Peas next.
In 2008, I was like ‘Guys, electro music is sick!’ And most of them were like, ‘What are you talking about, electro?’ (I said), ‘There’s this guy, David Guetta, and there’s like this underworld, we should do songs like that’," he had said.
