Black Eyed Peas' new LP The E.N.D is released in June
Black Eyed Peas' rapper Will.I.Am has described the sound of the group's new album as "high intensity dance".
The E.N.D, the Los Angeles foursome's fifth album released on 8 June, will according to the band, return to the dance sound of their early albums.
Current single Boom Boom Pow has topped the charts in countries including the UK, America and Australia.
Will.I.Am said: "This is high intensity dance, get on the floor [sound] - that's the only thing left to do."
Pinpointing tracks on LPs Behind The Front  and Bridging The Gap  Will.I.Am said the band would return to a club dance sound shown on previous efforts.
"We've always experimented with different songs. We had a song called Joints & Jam in 1998 and that remix was very house-inspired - in matter of fact we sampled Soho's Hot," he said.
"This record is just more focussed, it's like 'ugh', and the knob is at 200 instead of 75/50 - the way it used to be."
The band are back together after a three year break
The E.N.D [which stands for The Energy Never Dies] sees the foursome reconvene for the first time in three years following the release of 2005's Monkey Business.
Busying themselves with other projects singer Fergie has recently completed an acting part in forthcoming Hollywood film Nine - featuring Daniel Day Lewis and Nicole Kidman.
"That experience was amazing - Rob Marshall is such a nurturing director," said Fergie.
"He really gave me the time to rehearse and really dive into that character.
"It was like, I call it, like movie camp, we'd go to vocal lessons then we'd go to chorography then we'd to speech and then the actual running it through. It was like this factory going on and it was amazing."
"I got to be in a scene with the best actors in the business so it was such an honour."
Producer and rapper Will.I.Am also appeared in the recent X-Men Origins: Wolverine film but denied acting will distract him from the group's music.
"It depends on what the role is," he said on future prospects. "Just because I was in Wolverine doesn't mean I'm going to start flexing my acting muscles. I really want to get my study on and prepare myself more."
The band are expected to announce a new world tour later this year.
