Will.i.am to Produce Next U2 Album

Several media outlets reported today that The Black Eyed Peas front-man, Will.i.am, has signed on to produce a new U2 album. Apparently a friendship formed during the months that his band opened for U2 on the 360 tour last year.

He told The Sun:

"...just being around Bono and the guys is inspiring. It's like how a government should be. Bono for president of the world, I say. I try and do good and my bit to help the world but Bono is on another level. My car's pretty cool but he has a spaceship."

There is no word yet on when this new partnership will liftoff, but Will.i.am did mention he played some of the songs he and Bono had been working on for George Clooney and Cindy Crawford (also guests at Bono's house) and they were "blown away."

Update: This likely refers to the "club"-sounding album that Bono has mentioned before, a separate project from the album that Danger Mouse is reportedly producing.
