Former Black Eyed Peas star, and coach on the UK version of The Voice, will.i.am is preparing to work with Britney Spears on her latest album. The two already worked together for the number one hit Scream and Shout and will.i.am has admitted that he feels honoured to get asked back to help with the album.
Talking of what an honour it is, will.i.am told Billboard, "I don't want to let her down. I just want to do it the way a brand would do it. They wouldn't say, 'Take this. Put it out'. That's not what you would do. You'd come up with a mood board, the logos, the font, all the other stuff." He also admitted that he felt the need to interview Britney, to get an understanding of what she wanted from the album.
He added, "I said, 'Let's talk about what you're excited about. Let's talk about things you've done in your career, what you're happy about. Let's talk about spending time with your kids, let's talk about your break-up. Let's talk about how now you're single, how independent you might feel'. We started talking about all that stuff. So I said, 'Do you mind if I write this down? I don't mean to impose but I want to interview you. I need this to create a filter'."
Britney Spears quit as a judge on The X Factor USA, so that she could return her focus to her music career. With work on her new album beginning next week, we should get the official Britney Spears new album release sometime later in the year.
