Title and Release Date: TBD
Before Spears hit the studio for album No. 8, executive producer Will.i.am wanted to "go to lunch for two months" to get an intimate sense of where her life is right now. The results will likely appear before the holidays, as first single "All Eyes on Me" is prepped for a mid-September release. Having the extra insight into Spears' personal life means Will.i.am could say to songwriters, "‘Actually, we can't have this song. Yes, we want dance songs but that's a little too dark.' I want it to fit with the emotions. I'm really excited about that and honored that she trusts me. I don't want to let her down," he told Billboard in May.
