Black Eyed Peas singer will.i.am has warned Michael Jackson fans not to expect a new album any time soon.

The frontman has been working on Jacko's first LP since 2001 for over two years.

But he gave no indication when the new record is likely to surface.

He told BBC 1Xtra: "There's all these artists in the world like Neo, Chris Brown and Usher, Justin Timberlake, Fergies and Rhiannas and then there's Michael Jackson.

"Michael Jackson has a different pace and you can not put Michael Jackson in that category especially when a lot of those artists have been inspired by Michael Jackson.

"So Michael Jackson is gonna release his record when he releases his record."
