We, as a society, are now four days away from the release of Britney Spears’ new single “Work Bitch,” and we, the pop queen’s loyal subjects, have been bestowed with some more details surrounding the track. On Wednesday night (Sept. 11), Spears revealed the song’s five co-writers who worked on “Work Bitch” with her through Instagram, and less than 24 hours later, she unleashed the glitzy single artwork on Twitter.
The flashiest writing credit, of course, belongs to Sebastian Ingrosso, the Swedish DJ/producer best known as one-third of the now-defunct EDM trio Swedish House Mafia; his presence in the liner notes suggests that “Work Bitch” will be a dance floor scorcher. William Adams — better known as Will.i.am — is also a co-writer, which is expected since he is executive-producing Spear’s next album. Otto Jettman, a.k.a. Swedish house DJ Otto Knows, is also on board, as is Irish producer/songwriter Ruth-Anne Cunningham. Last but not least is Anthony Preston, who has worked closely with Will.i.am as well as with artists like Nicole Scherzinger and Afrojack.
Interestingly, the single artwork for “Work Bitch” features Spears in a feathery blue outfit, leaning on a desk that includes a miniaturized Las Vegas sign. If an announcement about Spears’ long-rumored Las Vegas residency is indeed impending, this photo is darn good evidence.
“Work Bitch” will make its premiere on iHeartRadio on Monday (Sept. 16) at 6:00 pm ET, and will hit iTunes six hours and one minute later. It may (or may not) (but probably) be the first single from Spears’ eighth album, which will follow 2011’s “Femme Fatale.”
