will.i.am stopped by the Capital Breakfast show with Dave Berry & Lisa Snowdon this morning to talk about a variety of subjects.
The music star, who will be returning to our screens as a coach on The Voice this weekend, teased new music from his band the Black Eyed Peas. The band last released an album back in 2010, The Beginning, and speaking on Capital Breakfast this morning will.i.am suggested that Black Eyed Peas will be marking their 20th anniversary this year.
Being a little vague on the details will.i.am revealed, “I can’t give too much detail, but the PEAbodies, there’s a bunch of PEAbodies out there that we’ve been Tweeting back and forth for the past couple of days, on the excitement of 20 years of the Black Eyed Peas. We’re gonna have new music, we’ll have a bunch of new experiences, I don’t wanna call them albums. We’ll have experiences and a bunch of stuff to get the PEAbodies, and the folks that supported us, that got us to this point, all the support the love, the encouragement and listening to and sharing our music. We’ll make music for them, and just reflect on the initial dream we had in June 1995.”
During his appearance on the show he also talked about new The Voice coach Rita Ora. “My gut before we did the show, I was like ‘woah’, I knew Rita was gonna be great, but I didn’t think she was gonna be this great. Everyone in the UK is gonna get to know the Rita that I’ve known for a real long time. She’s sweet, she’s spunkily, she’s edgy, she’s vibrant, she’s fiery, she’s a sweetheart.”
The Voice UK returns to BBC One this weekend.
