Will.i.am To Produce U2 Album

It’s been speculated that Black Eyed Peas member Will.i.am would be working with rockers U2 on their upcoming album.

Rapper Kanye West just confirmed the news on his blog: “Will.i.am is producing U2‘s next album. I’m sure it will be dope as s— judging from the crazy beats he’s done in the past 3 years!”

Will.i.am has said, “I would love to do something with them. It that ever happens it would be a dream come true! I went to Bono’s house. He has these summer parties and I went and had great food. It was the best. Those guys are the nicest people in the world.”

Can’t wait to hear the album!!!!!

    As the latest U2 album is done and should be out in early 2009, which “next album” would that be? They tend to put out an album every 4 years, so…

    NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Will.i.am should NOT produce an album for the greatest band to ever live!!! This isn’t right! He’s a good producer for hip-hop, rap, pop, and R&B, but he’s not made for rock! ARGGGG.
    The world is coming to an end.
    Sorry about that angry little rant.

    BAD IDEA!

    You know what? Let’s give him a chance.
    Let’s see what happens.

    interesting. he won’t be the only one producing it, though. daniel lanois and brian eno are working with them as usual. I bet this guy will have only produced one song with them

    I do not know what to think!! I am going to take #6 advice. It might just be fantastic, so I am going to keep an open mind!!

    dont get yourself all crazy u2 fans (it might only be a song or two anyway if yuor that worried), this is good news…sounds like U2 will be treading some new waters with rhythm and bass…i’m sure it will be a great sound. have they ever disapointed?

  • jrfan

    My first reaction was…not positive. But after thinking about it, well, I trust U2 and Will.i.am has respect for them so…if does ever happen it might not be so bad.
