Britney Spears says her next Jive album will be out in between six and nine months and that "I think it is more urban," she says in an interview with OK! Magazine. "I'm writing every day, right here at the piano in this living room. This is my best work ever."

Last month, Jive said Spears was working "with a team of top-notch producers and songwriters" that it did not name, but JR Rotem, Sean Garrett, Guy Sigsworth, Danja and Bloodshy & Avant have all independently revealed that they're contributing to the as-yet-untitled project.

The new album will be the follow-up to last year's "Blackout," which has sold 887,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

"Blackout" was largely overshadowed by Spears' tabloid-fodder personal life and her disastrous performance of the single "Gimme More" during the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards in Las Vegas.

As reported yesterday, Spears may wind up appearing at the upcoming VMAs and is already appearing in promo ads for the event next month.
