Tuesday Oct 30 20:16 AEDT – Black Eyed Peas frontman will.i.am says any new album put out by …king of pop Michael Jackson will be relevant because his music is universal.

The songwriter and vocalist is working on Jackson’s new album, which is due for release early next year, and says Jackson is in a unique position as an artist.

“Michael Jackson is probably one of the only artists that whenever he puts out a record it will still be relevant,” {tag will.i.am} told reporters in Sydney.

“No matter where you go in the world they’re playing Michael Jackson’s music, and no matter what artists come out they’re going to be doing Michael Jackson moves and emulating what he did.

“So that’s hard when you’re going to make new music with him.”

The hip hop star said people should listen to Jackson’s new music with an open mind.

“We … treat Michael Jackson as a new artist and just make songs with infectious melodies,” he said.

“The songs will speak for themselves.”

But he wouldn’t give away any hints on how the songs sound.

“I am sworn to silence or Michael is known to get pretty violent,” he joked.
