[BEP360 app launches as part of the iTunes App Store catalogue for iPad, iPhone and iPad touch users to hear and view a 360-degree view music video of The Black Eyed Peas new song "The Time (Dirty Bit)."]

Los Angeles -- Music industry pioneer and front man of The Black Eyed Peas, will.i.am, today announced the iTunes App Store launch of BEP360, an iPad, iPhone and iPod touch app that immerses fans in a 360-degree universe of the legendary music group. Featuring the world's first 360-degree view music video ("The Time 360"), BEP360 features the song "The Time (Dirty Bit)," the first single from new CD, "The Beginning", now available on Interscope Records.

BEP360 is the first release from will.i.apps, will.i.am's new digital media production entity dedicated to pioneering and producing application-based entertainment experiences. BEP360 is the first in a line of upcoming applications that will converge the worlds of creativity, music and advanced digital technologies.

Thirty years after the first music video aired on MTV, the will.i.apps team has reinvented how fans can be further immersed in the world of their favorite artists by pointing and swinging an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad around a 360-degree axis that then changes the point of view. An entirely new form of music video, BEP360 uses digital teleportation to take fans deeper inside the world of The Black Eyed Peas. A demo of the BEP360 app featuring The Black Eyed Peas and the making-of behind the scenes video can be seen at: http://www.williapps.com.

"will.i.apps and the BEP360 app have been established to help artists tap into the potential of our hyper-connected mobile world and bring fans deeper inside the music far beyond a four minute audio recording. It's a unique and completely new way to experience 360-degree music immersion that will bring artists and fans closer together," said will.i.am.
