NEW YORK — Fresh off winning three top awards at last weekend’s MTV Video Music Awards, Britney Spears has confirmed she will release a new album before year’s end. “Circus” is due Dec. 2 via Jive; the first single is “Womanizer,” produced by the Outsyders.
Among the other contributors are Dr. Luke, who wrote and produced the title cut, Danja, Guy Sigsworth, Max Martin and Bloodshy & Avant.
In August, Spears told OK Magazine of the new album, “I think it is more urban,” adding that she’d been writing everyday on a piano in her living room.
“Circus” is the follow-up to last year’s “Blackout,” which has sold 894,000 copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan. The project 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.
