Britney Spears will release her seventh studio in 'early 2011', according to one of her producers. Although her record company have not yet commented on the speculation, DR LUKE, who is working on the record, told The Hollywood Reporter that fans should expect the album to hit shelves early next year.
DR LUKE contributed several tracks to the 28-year-old's last album 'Circus', and speaking about the new album he said, "She's such an icon, I don't want to let anyone down. I'm excited to be co-executive producing with Max Martin, the person who kind of invented Britney, and to make good music", before adding, "She's such an amazing vehicle to getting that music out to a lot of people in every country" .
Spears has to date sold over 100 million records, and her last album sold over 3.5 million copies worldwide, earning the singer a GRAMMY AWARD nomination for the single 'Womanizer'. The hit US show 'Glee' recently dedicated an entire episode to Spears, in which the pop-star made a cameo appearance.
