It's been almost two years since Britney Spears released Circus, and it would seem that the singer is getting ready to follow it up. According to producer Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins, who is reportedly working with the singer on her next studio album, new music should be coming out soon.
"Britney fans are gonna be so happy in a few weeks," Darkchild revealed in a Ustream session over the weekend, according to Ace Showbiz. Earlier this year, a new Spears album was rumored for this summer, but no new music has surfaced this year except for a demo version of Lady Gaga's "Telephone" that Spears recorded for a previous album.
A rep for Spears had not responded to MTV News' email for comment or confirmation at press time.
Predator Dub Assassins confirmed that they too have worked with Spears in a tweet that said, "Co -Writing on a track for Britney Spears ft Akon. WTF ?! What is gonna happen next?"
In a tweet chat with her fans in May, Spears was asked what artists she would like to work with in the future. She said, "Would love to do a duet with Robbie Williams... where are you?"
"We're getting things together," producer/songwriter Danja told RapUp.com in June. The two have collaborated on Spears' last two LPs, with Danja behind Britney's 2007 single "Gimme More." "I've actually been doing tracks that I love, and I can't wait to go into full production mode, but more or so [we're in] pre-production than anything," he said.
"I'm definitely gonna do my part and try to make it hard-hitting, uptempo, high-energy," he added. "That's what I think we need and that's what I'm gonna shoot for."
