OAKEY ROPES IN SOME BLOKIES!

The stars join the already-confirmed Nelly Furtado...

PAUL OAKENFOLD has said his new album will feature ICE CUBE and BILLY CORGAN.

Speaking to Radio 1, the dance legend said that the album, which is due for release in 2002, will also feature Nelly Furtado.

He commented: “The album’s based around guitars and breaks, it’s kind of a step on from dance. There’s tracks with Ice Cube, the Neptunes (and) Billy Corgan.

“I’m a big fan of Nelly Furtado and she’s on the record. She’s got this wonderful way about her, she’s extremely talented and a great vocalist. Most of all she’s good fun, she doesn’t take it as seriously as some people do.”

As previously reported, Oakenfold has been working on his solo album in between DJ commitments. He has recently collaborated on a track with Crazy Town vocalist Shifty Shellshock.
