Wyclef Jean will release his new album on December 4 instead of November 6, according to Billboards.com. The former Fugees singer also spilled out collaborators and results expected from the new album.
'The Carnival II: Memoirs of an Immigrant' will include guests artists like will.i.am, Mary J. Blige, Akon, T.I., Norah Jones, Paul Simon, Chamillionaire and System of a Down's Serj Tankian. Along with newcomer Niia, Akon and T.I. have been featured in the singer's first single 'Sweetest Thing (Dollar Bill)' that was released to radio outlets on August 14.
"I always write music first and then I see who will fit perfectly. I don't know who will be on it until the very end," Jean told Billboard.com. "I've got T.I. rhyming against acoustic guitars. I have Paul Simon on a dark hip-hop beat. I have Chamillionaire against a Bollywood orchestra. I'm just influenced by different songs and beats in the world."
Some confirm tracks to appear in the album are 'Selena', 'Riot', and 'Slow Down', the latter being slated for second single.
