Now, take this “news” with a huge grain of salt but I think it’s totally worth passing along … according to a few posts on the fan site UBritney.com, it is being reported that our dear Britney Spears is planning to release a new single possibly as soon as March to be followed by a new album that is rumored to be released as early as June or July. As with all unsubstantiated reports like this, you can believe everything you hear … but considering the high probability of a new album to come from Britney in 2010, these rumors might not be that much off base at all. Here are the relevant reports from UBritney:
According to KIIS FM, Britney’s new single is set to hit radio stations in March! They also reported that her 7th studio album is set for a June-July release. Time to get excited Britney fans =) / Producer Jon Asher, 21, opens up about working and submitting new material for Britney’s 7th studio album due out this upcoming Spring/Summer. Here’re a few quotes from his official forum: “For now, I’ve only submitted songs for the next album. I’m trying to develop an exciting new sound for her. Give Britney more of an “Epic” feel, said Asher.” “Epic Pop is a genre that I am pioneering at the moment. Music that has meaning. It’s not your everyday pop love bug sound. It’s upbeat rhythms and sounds with meaningful emotional lyrics that people can feel. Something that truly moves you.” “I’m caught between Blackout and In the Zone. “Unusual You” from the Circus album and “Break the Ice” from her Blackout album [are my favorite Britney songs].”
HMMM. There are a few producers who are publicly talking about working with Britney so we know that work is being done on new material, it just remains to be seen if this new material will be out as soon as these rumors suggest. I’m happy to know that UBritney is citing KIIS FM as the source of the March single news but, then again, who knows if the news really originated from KIIS or was just made up. Whenever her new music drops, we can be pretty certain that it will happen sometime this year. And, for the record, any new music from Britney Spears can be classified as “Epic Pop” in my book. Woot!
