So what do we know about studio album #7 so far?

The following post was made on our sister site PopSeeker, the home of all your pop desires!

After 4 years of hogging tabloid sensationalist headlines, Britney Spears appears to have disappeared off the radar. Her last smash hit, '3' (which is still being played in clubs) came out last September to promote the release of her second greatest hits collection 'The Singles Collection'.

It has been confirmed she is back in the studio hard at work on her next studio album, her 7th, and this is what we know about it so far.

It was rumoured to be released June/July 2010 with a lead single April but more recently November has been thrown around as a more realistic release date (according to MTV News and Outsiders Media - the producers of 'Womanizer'). She is working with a whole host of hot writers and producers and is working on a sound that will be like 'Blackout on steroids' according to one source.

GimmeBritney reports that confirmed writers include:
Sean Garrett (who wrote 'Toy Soldier' off 'Blackout')
The Nervo Sisters
Chad Beatz (aka Chad Dexter) (via Twitter)
Jon Asher (via Twitter)
Jim Beanz
Michaela Shiloh
Meanwhile producers involved include:
Darkchild (via his official Twitter)- “In the studio creating a smash for Britney right now!!!”
David Guetta (via Facebook/MTV/Kyle & Jackie O Show – Australia) - although he did later backtrack slightly...
Danja (via his official Twitter)
Scott Storch (who wrote on Facebook they had completed a track called 'Second Chances')
K.Briscoe (The Outsyders) (who produced 'Womanizer')
Corte Ellis (Soul Diggaz) via MTV
Max Martin ('Baby One More Time', 'Lucky', 'Stronger' 'If U Seek Amy', '3')
Guy Sigsworth ('Everytime')
Ann Mincieli (Studio Engineer)
Lucas Secon
Bloodshy & Avant
Russ Castella
Cisco Adler
Jean Baptiste
Also, a couple of demos from producer Fernando Garibay have surfaced on the internet, listen to them here. Fans pretty much unanimously loved 'Blackout', myself included, but I can't help thinking that this whole electropop sound is getting a bit tired now, perhaps its a new sound she needs rather than more of the old?

What do you think? Does Britney need a new sound or more of what she does best? Comment below, tweet @popseeker or email
