Black Eyed Peas - Will.i.am's Diverse Album

will.i.am is ''art-ing out'' on his new solo album.

The Black Eyed Peas star has drawn from a diverse range of influences for #willpower and has had fun experimenting with different sounds.

He said: ''There's classical s**t, like just me and a guitar and an orchestra or me with just an orchestra and a kid's choir.

''There's some ghetto, ugly, dirty stuff. And then there's dance stuff, global world stuff and, like, avant-garde, left-of-centre, for-art's-sake music that has nothing to do with getting played on the radio. I'm just art-ing out. It's pretty diverse.''

will admits he is aiming for his solo work to be ''better'' than what he does with Black Eyed Peas and will only take the record on the road if it can stand up against the material he has recorded with the group.

He told Billboard: ''What I have going against me is everybody saying, 'Where the other three people at??'

''I can't just go out with a bunch of background dancers to make up for the fact Fergie, Ap and Taboo aren't there. So I have to come up with a different idea and invent something to make people say, 'Dang, that was better than what you were doing with the Peas!' That won't be easy, but if I can't do that, I'm staying home.''
