Britney Spears will be hitting the studio with Will.i.am next week to begin work on her new album. The Black Eyed Peas frontman previously revealed that he will be executive producing Spears’ eighth studio album, now he is revealing pieces of their creative process.
“We start next week,” he said. “Before we even start we’ve had these juicy sessions, where we’ve been bonding, building the trust and comfort. I’ve never worked like this before — not even the Peas.”
Spears has been divulging about different aspects of her life to Will.i.am as a means of getting to know each other before they begin making music.
“I wanted to just go to lunch for two months, which is totally different from how you typically do it,” Will.i.am continued. “I said, ‘Let’s talk about what you’re excited about. Let’s talk about things you’ve done in you career, what you’re happy about. Let’s talk about spending time with your kids, let’s talk about your breakup. 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.’”
Will.i.am added that he wants to ensure that each song Spears records coincides with her emotions.
