Britney Spears says album progress is steady


In this week’s Billboard cover story superstar Britney Spears shares that while she has been back in the studio as far back as September, don’t expect a proper new album from her any time soon.

“I’m gonna do [a new album] slowly but surely,” Spears tells Billboard ​.

“There’s a lot going on with my kids and schools and, you know, adding new sports and stuff like that. I’m gonna try to do my best to do an amazing album, but it’s not my full priority right now.”

Britney Spears has performed nearly 100 shows at Planet Hollywood Las Vegas since the release of her eighth studio album, 2013’s Britney Jean ​, ​and Spears and Planet Hollywood are currently in negotiations about ​ ​ extending the show another two years through 2017, so a new full-length album may still prove harder to squeeze in.

“Right now we’re just concentrating on putting out a few great singles as they come,” says Spears’ manager Larry Rudolph. “We’re not really talking seriously about a new album yet. 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.”
