Will.I.Am of the Black Eyed Peas has spoken again in glowing terms about the work being done on Michael’s new album. He was interviewed in Australia where he is currently touring.”Michael Jackson is probably one of the only artists that whenever he puts out a record it will still be relevant,” he said in Sydney. “No matter where you go in the world they’re playing Michael Jackson’s music, and no matter what artists come out they’re going to be doing Michael Jackson moves and emulating what he did. So that’s hard when you’re going to make new music with him.”
The hip hop star also added that people should listen to Michael’s new music with an open mind.
“We…treat Michael Jackson as a new artist and just make songs with infectious melodies,” he said. “The songs will speak for themselves.”
On hints about how the songs sound he was unable to comment joking; “I am sworn to silence or Michael is known to get pretty violent.”
The article also predicts that the album could be released early next year.
