Britney Spears is either a workaholic or a masochist. After a grueling seven-month tour around the world, rumor has it Brit’s releasing her seventh studio album as early as May 2010, with a bevy of familiar faces on board.
Producer Nate ‘Danjahandz’ Hills, aka Danja (“Gimme More,” “Break the Ice”), confirmed through his Twitter that he’ll be working with Britney “very very soon”. And according to Digital Spy, Max Martin (“3,” “If You Seek Amy,” “Baby… One More Time”) is reportedly back to produce some tracks, along with Sean Garrett (who penned the super-catchy “Toy Soldier,” which unfortunately never became a single off of Blackout).
Garrett recently gave an interesting quote about his work ethic to MTV:
“I have to take the same type of approach I take on the hit records I write: I can’t rush it,” he said. “I’m a f—ing superstar artist/writer/producer, and I will give my fans what they want and what they’re asking me to give them: a phenomenal album. I’m the underdog, man, I can’t go wrong. I got nothing to lose. Underdogs can’t lose.”
Okay then. We have a feeling that between him taking his sweet time producing and the drama still surrounding Britney’s personal life, a May release might be pushing it.
And in honor of today being the sixth anniversary of Brit dropping her final pre-bonkers album In the Zone, here’s the “Toxic” video—not like you need a reason to watch it.
