Black Eyed Peas Taboo recently explained why the group had fallen for the K-pop hype.

We just love international music. We love the climate of that sound. Its that pulse that we just have to appreciate, he told

I am glad to see K-pop really pop off and its cool to see how its become an international craze. Its amazing how people may not be Korean [but] they still take part in the experience and it is kind of cool.

Of the new album, he added: We have been performing, expressing new experiences, and new songs and new facial expressions. Its good to have something new in the market.

In support of their new record, the Black Eyed Peas will embark on the Masters Of The Sun tour in the UK and Europe on 27 October. The nine-date jaunt will kick off in London and wrap up in Germany on 18 November.
