Britney Spears on Recording New Album: ‘It’s Not My Full Priority Right Now’
Calling all Britney Spears fans: If you've been hoping for a new album from the princess of pop, you're about to be sorely disappointed. The living legend herself said putting out a full-length album probably isn't going to happen any time soon.
According to her interview with Billboard, Britney has too much going on in her personal life to focus on recording an album at any point in the near future. Instead, she plans on taking her time to release new music. She said, "I'm gonna do [a new album] slowly but surely. 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's manager, Larry Rudolph, went on to say that Britney will still be putting out music, just not a full album. He said, "Right now we're just concentrating on putting out a few great singles as they come. 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."
Britney's last album was 2013's Britney Jean, so fans are itching to hear new music from the "Perfume" singer, but it looks like it'll be a while before anything is released. She does have an upcoming duet with Iggy Azalea in the works, though there's still no word as to when that single will drop.
