Britney Spears: I’m Working On New Album “Slowly But Surely”
Britney Spears reveals she’s working on a new album, but it doesn’t sound like it’s going to be released anytime soon. Spears, who is still in the middle of her Las Vegas residency at Planet Hollywood, tells Billboard she is “gonna do [a new album] slowly but surely.”
Spears says, “There’s a lot going on with my kids and schools and, you know, adding new sports and stuff like that.” The 33-year-old mom to sons Sean Preston and Jayden James adds, “I’m gonna try to do my best to do an amazing album, but it’s not my full priority right now.”
In the interview with the music magazine, her manager Larry Rudolph echoes Spears’ sentiment: “Right now we’re just concentrating on putting out a few great singles as they come.” He says there hasn’t been serious talk about a new record yet because “albums just aren’t as important in the digital age as they used to be.”
“Britney will get to one eventually, but not right now,” assures Rudolph. Spears also reveals that she’s talking with Planet Hollywood about extending her residency until 2017. Currently, Spears is slated to continue her “Pieces of Me” show through the end of 2015. What do you think about about the possibility of a new Britney Spears album?
