The 'This Is Love' star has been in the studio in Prague "making MJ proud" as he readies release of his delayed record.

Will.i.am has confirmed that he will head out on a new solo world tour in 2013 as he continues to finish work on his new album '#willpower'.

The Black Eyed Peas man was forced to delay the 2012 planned release of the record after demos were taken from his stolen car.

He was also upset with the number of leaked tracks making their way online and said he wanted to make a series of new tracks.

He took to Twitter last night (2nd January) to reveal his plans for the year and promised that he will head out on the road once again.

"My new years resolution is to: FOCUS, WORK HARD, EAT & LIVE HEATHY, and TOUR the world on a #willpowerTOUR," he wrote.

He was also out in Prague at the end of the year working with a 70-piece orchestra for his new album and said he wanted to make Quincy Jones and Michael Jackson "proud" with his new material.

Will.i.am's new album '#willpower' is expected to be released in early 2013.
