Category: By Mircea
English: As you all know, The Black Eyed Peas is my favourite band. So, this is some big news for me. stated that the next album called 'The E.N.D.' (The Energy Never Dies) will be done on Nov. 15th, but he doesn't know whether to release it this year or in the beginning of 2009. Their previous effort, 2005's 'Monkey Business' has sold 4.2 million copies only in the U.S. with very few copies left in the stores. The Peas' frontman predicts that this is the last year we'll find music in stores, as everything will be digital, that's why he'll offer embeded information and online listening parties. Note to that: He's already negotiating with diverse software programmers. So nothing but good news from these guys. I'm so glad that they'll be back very soon and I'm very keen on listening their new material, especially with Fergie's smashing solo success. Good luck guys and all the best to you! :X At the end of this post you have the full statement, thanks to

Romanian: Dupa cum stiti deja, Black Eyed Peas este trupa mea favorita. Asa ca astea sunt niste vesti uriase pentru mine. a declarat ca viitorul album, numit 'The E.N.D.' (The Energy Never Dies) va fi gata pe 15 noiembrie, dar nu stie daca sa-l lanseze in acest an sau la inceputul lui 2009. Ultimul album lansat, acum 3 ani, 'Monkey Business' a fost vandut in 4.2 milioane de copii numai in state, pe rafturi ramanand foarte putine exemplare. Liderul formatiei prezice ca acesta este ultimul an in care muzica se va vinde in magazine, totul devenind digital. De aceea va oferi informatii tip 'embed' si muzica va fi postata pe net, unde lumea asculta muzica in realitate. Deja este in negocieri cu diversi programatori si diverse companii. Deci numai vesti bune de la ei. Sunt foarte bucuros ca vor aparea din nou pe scena muzicala si sunt foarte nerabdator sa ascult noile material, mai ales de cand cu succesul solo rasunator al lui Fergie. Mult noroc din partea mea pentru ei si sper ca totul sa le mearga bine! :X Mai jos aveti declaratia lui Will, conform

Black Eyed Peas are due to complete their fifth album, "The E.N.D.," in London next week. "I'll be finishing the record Oct. 15," producer and group member said. Recording sessions have been taking place at Metropolis Studios in London.

The album title is not an indication that it's intended to be the hip-hop outfit's final record. "No, no -- it stands for 'The Energy Never Dies,' " sad.

Black Eyed Peas' previous set, 2005's "Monkey Business" (A&M/Interscope), has sold 4.2 million copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan. "We still have a contract with them," said, adding that the number of albums left to deliver was "not that many."

Asked about the group's future relationship with the Universal Music label, said: "It all depends on how they evolve, it's up to them to define what they're going to be in the future."

"They want it to come out soon but I don't know if that's the right thing," he added, when asked about the label's plans for the record. However, said he's partly tempted to try to release it in 2008 because he's convinced that this will be the final year where physical sales are significant.

"For the last remaining stores that sell CDs, this is the last Christmas that CDs will be in stores," he predicts. "It's f---ing scary."

However, he said Black Eyed Peas are embracing online music delivery; following the successful viral campaign for's "Yes We Can" song backing Barack Obama's presidential campaign.

"We're just finishing the songs and collaborating with the software guys," said, who said he wants Black Eyed Peas' music to be interactive, offering embedded information and even "songs within songs" when the user clicks on a pop-up.

"I'm tired of making songs for the radio and for MTV," he said. "You should make songs for where songs are actually being listened and played. We have new people -- software programmers. They are just as important as me,, Taboo and Fergie. That's us, the visual members.

"But nowadays it isn't just physical with music and content anymore -- you have to have proprietary software. Just borrowing other people's s--- doesn't empower the growth and how you monetize that content, so that's why it's important that we got a software guy that is part of the Peas."
