2009 will mark the start of a new era, so it’s fitting that will.i.am will celebrate it by singing “It’s a New Day” on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Eve special.

The Black Eyed Peas frontman is set to perform the song on “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest.” Will.i.am has said the song was inspired by the victory of President Elect-Barack Obama.

He will join a star-studded lineup that includes the Jonas Brothers, Taylor Swift and Lionel Richie. While the latter three are performing from Times Square, will.i.am will join the Pussycat Dolls, Fall Out Boy and Ne-Yo in segments from Los Angeles.
