Britney Spears has revealed that her eighth studio album will be released in December 2013 and while the star hasn’t given the album a title yet it’s till one of the most anticipated albums of the year.
The former X Factor USA judge also released her new single ‘Work B****’ earlier in the month. A day before it was due to be released the track was leaked online like many others over the past few months.
Britney Spears’ manager Larry Rudolph has spoken about the stars forthcoming album in an interview with Billboard.com and spoke about how the album has a ‘Madonna Vibe’.
He also discussed how on the album the ‘Madonna Vibe’ continues into other songs and that following on from the successful collaboration with Will.i.Am is a trend that is set to continue on the eighth album:
“After the ‘Scream & Shout’ exercise, which went so well, the public seems to really like Britney and Will together. There’s something about them that works.”
He continued: “He understands who she is and what her audience wants. ‘Work Bitch’ is a great example of a song that’s from this album, but I don’t know that it necessarily defines the album.”
Larry also spoke about Madonna’s ‘Ray of Light’ and how on the album there are sounds that are very similar to that track:
“There are a couple other songs that have a really modern EDM vibe and other stuff that has more of a ‘Ray of Light’ (Madonna) vibe.”
“I really think of this as Britney’s ‘Ray of Light’ album – it’s kind of like that in a lot of ways. She wrote everything on the album with collaborators. There’s one or two she wrote herself.”
“There’s a lot of other material on here that is really rich. There’s a ballad called ‘Perfume’ that she recorded recently. Britney wrote it with Sia. It’s a breakup song that’s about wanting the next girl to smell your perfume on the guy afterwards.”
He also said “The lyric is really unique and she sings the s**t out of it. I think everyone will be really impressed by the song. I don’t know if it will be the second or third single, but it will definitely be a single.”
