A small taste of Britney Spears’ eighth album. Read More »
If you’re like us, then the first thing you do every morning after you put on a pot of coffee is log on to Britney Spears‘ website. And so today (August 20), our routine was completely and magically thrown off when we saw a clock on her site counting down to the release of “All Eyes On Me,” which we’re going to assume is the name of a new single.
Right now, it’s at 28 days and counting, which means the new track should arrive September 17 at 9:30 a.m. ET (please check our math/calendar-reading skills). Prepare your minds and your bodies for the first taste of album eight.
While we know many details about the making of Brit’s next album (including the secret recipe), this is the first announcement to reveal an official name and date for any of the new material, although last week she tweeted that something was coming “MUCH sooner than you think.”
The LP is being executive produced by will.i.am and is slated to have production from Naughty Boy, William Orbit and Hit-Boy, plus a song co-written with Sia. Those producers have variously described the material as “out of this world,” “having a global sound,” “not anything that dub-steppy” and “from the heart.” In other words: it’s Britney, bitch.
