Britney Spears is spending the summer working on new album

Further proving that she’s getting her life back on track, Britney Spears is spending her summer in the recording studio, working on her next album. And it seems like Brit is really committed this time around – she’s working her butt off, according to her manager and producers. After her last album sucked in a monumental way, Brit must realize she’s got to get her music together; fans are unlikely to forgive her more than one bad album.

Britney Spears’s summer won’t be all rest and relaxation this year: The pop singer will be spending time hard at work on her yet-untitled next album, according to her manager.

“Britney Spears is spending her summer in the recording studio, working on a brand new album,” manager Larry Rudolph announced Tuesday in a statement released by Jive Records.

“She’s working with a team of top-notch producers and songwriters, and we’re very excited about what she’s accomplished so far. No album release date has been confirmed yet.”

Britney started spending time in the studio this past spring. By her own manager’s account, it was simply recreational and for fun. He made some comments to People that implied he didn’t think anything would come of it, noting:

“She’s been going to the studio, she’s been having some fun. But it’s all recreational for her,” he told PEOPLE in May. “She’s like, ‘I want to go to the studio because I want to have some fun’ and that’s what it’s all about. There’s no schedule, there’s no agenda, there’s no anything. She is just enjoying herself.” In the studio, “She’s giggly,” he added. “Some days she’ll go in and get nothing done. Some times she’ll just play around a little bit.”

But Rudolph said there was a reason behind the playtime. “She’s the type of person who has the eye of the tiger,” he said. “She’ll likely wake up one day and decide she wants to do more than that. Whether that is a day from now, a month from now or a year from now or five years from now, I have no idea.”

Someone must have helped Britney realize that just “wanting to have some fun” wasn’t exactly going to help her career in the long run. Or the short run. It seems like Britney’s done a decent job of figuring out she can’t just have fun all the time.

    She does look good. I seriously think the last thing Britney has to worry about is her career. She needs to just chill out, too bad she’s still in LA. She has enough money, if handled properly, she could take a very long break and concentrate on being a better mom and human being.

  4. Gawd help us and her for that matter.

    i think brit needs to chill and work on just being happy, being with her kids, etc. for awhile. being pushed back into the spotlight so soon seems like a bad idea.
