Britney’s Summer In The Studio

Published: Wednesday 16th Jul 2008 by Sam
Britney's Summer In The StudioIt was reported back in May that Britney Spears had begun work on her new album. Today, her record label have confirmed the news, adding that the recovering Pop princess will be spending the summer recording the LP. Check out the report via Billboard below:

Spears is said to be working “with a team of top-notch producers and songwriters” not named in the statement, but JR Rotem, Sean Garrett, Guy Sigsworth, Danja and Bloodshy & Avant have all independently revealed that they’re contributing to the as-yet-untitled project.

The new album, for which no release date has been confirmed, will be the follow-up to last year’s “Blackout,” which has sold 879,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

The album was largely overshadowed by Spears’ tabloid-fodder personal life and her disastrous performance of the single “Gimme More” during the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards in Las Vegas.

On a bit of a random note, I’m actually surprised ‘Blackout’ shifted as many units as it did. I say this, considering there was next to no promotion for it for obvious reasons. I guess it goes to show that the interest level is still there; with a pretty impressive producer line-up, it’s left to Britney to deliver on *all* fronts this go round…

Do you think Britney still has what it takes?

    I think people are still pulling for Britney’s return, regardless of all her personal struggles that she has been going through these last couple of years. I still have faith in her and I’m glad that she is gradually coming back into the music scene at her own pace. She was giving the “Pop Princess” title for a reason and when she does come back she will be a FORCE to be reckoned with. Don’t give up on her just yet,

    No surprise here. Despite all the drama, Blackout was a really good pop album – what Britney does best. Very danceable and radio-friendly songs. Gimme more, Piece of Me, Break the Ice, Radar, Toy Soldier are standouts.

    actually, blackout had a lot of promotion. they paid for ads on all the blogs and on TV. they also had her on ryan seacreast’s stupid show. people didn’t want to buy it.

    To Anonymous at 1:10…. Blackout barely had promotion. If you compare Britney’s other 4 albums to her “Blackout’ album… then you would see the difference in album promotion. The only promotion in regards to television and that was actually pertaining to “HER MUSIC” and not “HER PERSONAL LIFE”, was the add that Jive released to television about the album coming out. Also the poorly video’s Britney did. That was her promotion and the songs that the radio stations played. She didn’t go to any late night talk shows, no concerts, no interviews except for that lame interview on Ryan Seacrest. If Britney wasn’t going through what she was going through at that time she would have sold more in her first week, she would have surpassed the million mark in sales right now and she would probably be touring right now. Please don’t unestimate Britney when she is on her A game. And due to “Blackout” situation WE all know she wasn’t on her A game.

    Regardless of the minimal sales for Blackout, the album was pretty decent. People didn’t give her a chance. Drama sells albums, all she needed was the right promotion. Maybe she should holla at 50, the man is a marketing genius. Anyway, I wish her luck because she is a good performer.
