YESSSS!!! This is very welcome news. With the recent release of Scream & Shout, my intense desire for a new Britney Spears album has started a slow burn. It is my sincere hope that her 8th album will be out in 2013 because I don’t think I could wait any longer than that. I’m encouraged by this talk that Britney‘s new album will be full of surprising new music. At this point in her career, she can take more risks and put out music that pushes the boundaries. While I would LOVE for her to release another album like Blackout, I don’t know that we will get that lucky. Still, I’m very encouraged by the news that she is collaborating with Elijah Blake so … let the handwringing commence! It may feel like a very long wait for the next Britney album but soon … I hope we will be feasting our ears soon.
