Word reaches me that Britney Spears has been impressing people behind the scenes whilst working on her new album. One of the producer’s working with her, Fraser T. Smith, tells me she was an absolute pleasure from start to finish. Fraser – who penned one of my favourite hits last year, James Morrison and Nelly Furtado’s duet Broken Strings – says she was professional and totally adorable. Fraser said: “We worked on three tracks and I love them all. I turned up straight from the plane and she was fantastic. She made coffee for us all in the studio, her voice was strong and she was totally focused on her music. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I just hope the tracks make the final cut for the album.”
Britney Spears, who has kept relatively quiet since her high-profile guest spot on “Glee,” is reportedly readying the release of a new single called “Hold It Against Me” off her yet-untitled new album, due in March.
According to PopJustice.com, “Hold It Against Me“ will be first single from her new album and features production credits from Spears hitmaker Max Martin and Dr. Luke (Ke$ha, Katy Perry). Rumored lyrics to the tune recently surfaced on the Internet, but Dr. Luke took to Twitter to dismiss them: “I / we never wrote a song called ‘don’t hold it against me’…. BewaRe of InaccuraTe info kids We did write ‘hold it against me’ but those lyrics are NOT the lyrics ….”
Spears hinted about her work with the duo just a few weeks ago tweeting, “Just finished recording a monster with @TheDoctorLuke and #MaxMartin. Get ready…”
Word of new Spears music originated from the pop star herself one week ago, when she thanked fans for their birthday wishes and announced that her new album would drop in March. “I’m almost done with my new album and it will be coming out this March,” she said on Twitter. “I AM IN L-O-V-E WITH IT!”
But what would Britney’s music be without her signature choreography? It looks like the megastar is also gearing up to reunite with her former dancer/choreographer Brian Friedman, who worked with the singer on the remix clip for her tune “Overprotected.” In a Facebook message, the dance mastermind wrote, “Hey everyone… won’t be back from London till the late teens of December. Y’all better get your dancing shoes out cuz it’s time for me to ‘Hit you baby one more time…’ Yes, Britney and I are back in action! Werque!”
If that weren’t enough, the songstress also announced on Twitter that she teamed up with high-fashion photographer Mario Testino for a new photo shoot.
