Britney Spears working on a new album

Despite appearances, it seems Britney Spears is actually doing something besides shopping and cameos on Glee.  Her manager says that she’s in the studio, working on a few songs that will hopefully turn into her next album… but it’s not certain when this will materialize.  Things are clearly in the early stages, as there is not release date for the album yet, and it’s not clear if there’s even been a serious start on recording.  So don’t don’t hold your breath just yet, but word has it that the album will be out sometime in 2011, and that it’s going to be produced by Max Martin, who was producing for Britney back when she was making back-to-back hits.  Sounds like we could have a winner on our hands, eventually.
