With her new single, “Gimme More,” having just hit the airwaves, Britney Spears’ long-in-the-works comeback album is set for a Nov. 13 release via Jive. The Danjahandz-produced “Gimme More” debuted last night (Aug. 30) on New York station Z100’s Web site; at its outset, Spears announces, “It’s Britney, b*tch,” atop club-friendly electro beats.
No other firm news has been confirmed by Jive about the as-yet-untitled album, which is expected to feature contributions from J.R. Rotem and Sean Garrett. It’s Spears’ first studio release since 2003’s “In the Zone.”
In the past year-and-a-half, Spears’ personal travails have far overshadowed her music career. But she is rumored to be making an appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards next week in Las Vegas, where she has previously made headlines by kissing Madonna and performing with a giant snake draped across her body.
Spears will also host the opening of the LAX club in Las Vegas tonight, but it is unknown if she will perform.
