The Jacksons have hinted they may work with Will\.i\.am and David Guetta.

The four brothers - Jackie, Jermaine, Marlon and Tito, siblings of the late Michael Jackson - are heading to the studio to work on a comeback album next year, and have a number of big name producers lined up to work with them.

Jackie exclusively told BANG Showbiz: ''We're gonnna do what people want to hear - The Jacksons, but we're also going to add the new elements of today's generation with that music as well, from the heart and soul.

When asked if they would work with producers David Guetta or Will.i.am, Jackie added: ''There's a lot of that going on as well, collaboration. I can't give anything away yet. You already said them! We're talking to a lot of people, and we love surprises, so can't say anymore.''

The group will head to Europe on their Unity tour at the beginning of next year and Tito says there are many groups from the continent who influenced The Jackson 5's early soul-funk sound.

He said: ''There was a great influence, The [Rolling] Stones, the Bee Gees and some of the work of The Beatles when Billy Preston was working with them. There's a lot of European influence on our sound. And I think they were getting influenced by American acts, music is a universal language and there are only eight notes.''

Speaking of their excitement about the tour, he added: ''It's exciting to play these tunes once again and play them for the people and play the music that we love to sing and play.''

Jackie jokingly added: ''The fans know all the lyrics better than me!''

Tickets for The Jacksons' UK tour are on sale now.
