Black Eyed Peas Near The E.N.D.

Black Eyed Peas Near The E.N.D.

The Black Eyed Peas will finish recording their fifth album, “The E.N.D.,” at Metropolis Studios in London, reports Billboard.

The album title doesn’t mean it’s BEP’s final album though. “No, no — it stands for ‘The Energy Never Dies,’” explains producer and group member will.i.am.

He goes on to say that he’s tempted to release “The E.N.D.” this year because this will be the final year where physical sales are significant. He predicts: “For the last remaining stores that sell CDs, this is the last Christmas that CDs will be in stores. It’s f—ing scary.”

will.i.am, who was the mastermind behind the viral “Yes We Can” song backing Barack Obama‘s Presidential campaign, added that he wants BEP’s music to be interactive, offering embedded information and even “songs within songs” when the user clicks on a pop-up.

“We’re just finishing the songs and collaborating with the software guys,” says will.i.am. “I’m tired of making songs for the radio and for MTV. 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, apl.de.ap, 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 sh– 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.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK of this “interactive music” — YAY or NAY?

    will.i.am is so well spoken and i really respect that. a lot of artists nowadays have no idea what they’re actually doing and just let their management steer their careers. BEP has group members who aren’t just talented and original, but they’re so knowledgeable about the business aspect of being an artist.

    Interactive music? wouldn’t that mean you can only play it on the computer or special MP3 players? Dunno about that, but I’m happy BEP is finally making another album; I was starting to think maybe they were done as a group.

    I will be eagerly awaiting this album!

  • Emma

    (: I love BEP! Alison…..Bep’s breakthrough was when they released a single with Fergie… 0__o

  • Pardeep Sidhu

    Fergie is fricken awsome. She carries the group. They were nothing when she wasnt with them, no one had ever even heard of them. So excited for their new album. Gonna be wicked like the last one. Maybe ever better.

    as one emcee said, when your music has no message and you go platinum, it doesn’t have shit to do wit luck, it just means there’s a million dumb muthafuckas willing to listen to your garbage, like most of the ppl that posted on this page. take a listen to their first album, behind the front (which is their ONLY credible hip hop album), and compare it to all the releases theyve got with fergie. BEP are sellouts.

    Will.I.Am is an eccentric idiot. Just like Kanye. CD sales are falling, but people are still buying them! It will still be a while before they fall into oblivion.

  • andrew
