Earlier this week we got to read the RUMORED lyrics for the new Dr. Luke-produced song Hold It Against Me that will reportedly be included on Britney Spears’s new album (due out in March) and we heard from Britney album producer Sean Garrett that the team is working on a “new sound” for Brit’s new disc. Today we learn that Britney is reportedly also working with the British producing team Xenomania on her new album … which, if true, bodes very well for the success of the album.
BRITNEY SPEARS will be making some catchy pop songs again. The singer has turned to the XENOMANIA production team to work on her new album. That should be right up her street – they are the songwriters who helped put GIRLS ALOUD on every cheesy DJ’s setlist. The British team have also worked with KYLIE MINOGUE, SUGABABES and CHER, but the latter shouldn’t put Britney off. Her new material, due out in March, will have more influence from this side of the Pond as emerging Essex girl JESSIE J has also been lined up for the project.
I haven’t read anywhere else this news that Britney is working with Xenomania but there really is no reason not to believe the report. Xenomania collaborated with Britney before on her album In The Zone (on a song called Graffiti My Soul) but none of the songs they came up with made it onto the album. Xenomania have a very cool, Euro pop feel to their music … they’ve worked with Kylie Minogue, Girls Aloud, Sophie-Ellis Bextor and Rachel Stevens. Most folks here in the US aren’t familiar with any of these British pop acts (including Kylie). I love all of these artists and am really excited to hear what they come up with for Britney’s new album … that is, if their songs actually make the cut this time. I am SO amped for this album … the producers we keep hearing about as collaborators are a great mix of fun sounds. I am DYING to hear the final product.
