Can we expect a new Britney Spears album in 2013? The X Factor judge alluded to such news during a Twitter chat where she revealed that she's "working hard" on new music.
When asked over the holiday break by her fans if she'll be releasing her eighth studio album, Spears, 31, replied in a series of responses, reading: "Really focused on my music right now. ... Collaborating with some new inspiring producers. ... Working hard."
MTV reports that Spears is working with songwriter Elijah Blake (best known for his Rihanna tracks) and her longtime collaborator Rodney Jerkins. "From talking to her, she's definitely trying to push the envelope this time — and really talk from a more personal point of view, and with Rodney Jerkins by her side, I'm hella excited," Blake told The Grape Juice. "You're talking about Darkchild, the guy who changes music over and over again and never runs out of ideas. This album is gonna be crazy!"
Spears has already released a single with Black Eyed Peas frontman will.i.am. Check out Scream & Shout, below.
