Report: Britney Working On New Album

Published: Thursday 22nd May 2008 by Sam
Britney Working On New Album Following a tumultuous year and a half, Pop princess Britney Spears is back in the studio working on the follow-up to 2007’s ‘Black Out’ with producer JR Rotem and songwriter Sean Garrett. Check out the report via

“She’s great,” Rotem told PEOPLE at the BMI Pop Awards in Beverly Hills on Tuesday. “She’s like a master at what she does. She’s a lot more experienced than most people. She just has the ‘it’ factor that not every artist has. So it’s always nice to work with her.”

Although Rotem, who briefly dated Spears in 2007, would not reveal any details of the project, a Spears family source tells PEOPLE that the pop star is in the early stages of a follow-up to her last album Blackout, which was released last October.

“Britney is in the experimental stages of a new album,” says the source. “She’s trying to find the sound and direction she wants to go in, but nothing is set in stone just yet. She has been playing the piano a lot and just singing. She says she misses ‘just singing.'”

Producer Sean Garrett was mum on specifics but says that he and Spears, 26, have “a few things in the works.” At the BMI Pop Awards, Garrett told PEOPLE: “I’m just happy to see her back and recovering. She’s really shaping up and getting her whole situation back together. I’m really proud and happy to see her.”

Though recent media reports suggest she’s getting her life back together, I’m still, somewhat, pessimistic about her recording a new album so soon. The fact she wasn’t able to promote ‘Blackout’ essentially killed what was her best effort in years IMO. It would be unfortunate if the same occurred next go round. When she’s ready to resurface in terms of doing the media rounds, is when, I believe, she’ll be ready to release a new LP. Gone are the days when an artists name alone could sell an album; every last unit has to be hustled for.

    You mad! Her last album was like a massive hit – around the world? Her singles even did good? Yea, she didnt do ANY promotion coz she was messed up (but lets not forget (alot of ppl do) that Amy WInehouse did literally ZERO promo for her album and er…look how that panned out!)). Is Britney ready to release a new album? Who knows, but if she’s working on it, thats a good look.

    Blackout was big and i’m not even a Britney fan lol!

    I think they should record a few new tracks and rerelease Blackout. That CD is the s***. It’s really, really, really good. They shouldn’t give up on it.

    I agree with the above, blackout was f****** insane …i still listen to it daily .. it was really really really hot, like every track on it was perfect.

    I hope she does the promotion well this time, and i too want a re-release of blackout!

    Love britbritb!

    I didn’t hear her last album but I hope the new one does well. I used to like Britney until she went crazy!

    I think they should release BLACKOUT with new songs and a DVD. Radar is a good song to release a delux edition.
    This album has won some awards and very good reviews. Furthermore, BLACKOUT is one of the best 2007 albums according to Rolling Stones magazine:

    BLACKOUT DELUXE EDITION with promotion and a little tour.
