Britney Spears has been relatively quiet as of late, but oh is she keeping busy.
The Pop force has been diligently cooking up her eighth studio album, which has already been ordained one of music’s most anticipated releases. Indeed, the follow-up to 2011’s ‘Femme Fatale’ has been the subject of much speculation – from who’s working on it (beyond will.i.am) to when it’ll be arriving.
It comes as little surprise then that the singer’s fans are rejoicing following the star’s phone interview with Ryan Seacrest this morning.
Calling in to plug her new Smurfs song ‘Ooh La La’, the 31-year-old was refreshingly responsive when quizzed about what folk really want to know about – the album.
Flip the hood to hear what she had to say…
Juicy bit starts at 6.00 mark…
– Early stages of production, but album will solidly set for release before the year’s end.
– Spears will be going into studio with Madonna maestro William Orbit. The pair have never worked together before.
– Though not famed for her songwriting skills, Spears is writing on this project
– LP will sounds sonically different to prior efforts. will.i.am is presently playing material that is very unexpected (see: heavy guitar riffs)
As deservingly hard as we’ve been on Britney in recent years, it’s hard to deny that she is the caliber of Pop star whose album releases are “major events”. We just hope she’s able to pair this with solid performances, this go round.
