The 'Scream & Shout' rapper has also released his brand new track featuring Justin Bieber.

Will.i.am has announced the long-awaited release date of his new solo album '#willpower'.

The Black Eyed Peas frontman has been working on his latest studio record for the past two years, and has now confirmed it will officially drop late next month.

Will.i.am was forced to delay the release of '#willpower' in September last year after a number of tracks went missing after his car was temporarily stolen, and revealed plans to record a number of new songs for the record in the wake of the theft.

The 'This Is Love' star has now announced a late April release for the record, as well as releasing his new single '#ThatPower' featuring Justin Bieber yesterday (18th March).

Will.i.am debuted the new song on Capital FM last Friday (15th March) to a hugely popular reception from fans, particular in light of 'Boyfriend' singer Justin Bieber's guest spot on the track.

The US star's new album will feature guest appearances from stars including Britney Spears, Lil Wayne, Nicole Scherzinger, Diddy, Chris Brown and Miley Cyrus.

Will.i.am's recent Vodafone Big Top 40 hit 'Scream & Shout' featuring Britney Spears will definitely feature on the record, alongside the song's popular remix release.

Will.i.am will release new album '#willpower' on 23rd April and his new single '#ThatPower' is available to download now.
