Black Eyed Peas Delay Album Release

MTV News reports Black Eyed Peas have pushed the release date of ‘Elephunk’ to January. Will.I.Am and cohorts are still finishing three songs.

The Black Eyed Peas Wanted To Record In Australia spoke with will-i-am of BEP about the group’s love for Australia and the group’s plan to record their third album – the follow-up to Bridging The Gap, in Sydney. will-i-am said,
“We were gonna come out, we already had it set up, we called up our record company and they had us a house – I think it was near The Rocks – and we were gonna record it right in the house. We actually were gonna write in Australia. But the [record company] president over here in the States said no.” Why? “I don’t know – but it wasn’t a money issue, because it’s more expensive to record in New York and LA. I mean, I did my homework. It was more of a monitoring thing, they wanted to make sure we were not writing… I don’t know!”
