New Britney Album Due In 2011, Single Out Before Christmas?

Rumors are swirling that Ms. Britney Spears is going to have a single out sometime in December as a tease of her new upcoming album, which will hit shelves in the early part of next year.

Although her record company have not yet commented on the speculation, producer Dr. Luke told The Hollywood Reporter that fans should expect the album to hit shelves early next year. He has contributed several tracks to her new album and added, “She’s such an icon, I don’t want to let anyone down. I’m excited to be co-executive producing with Max Martin, the person who kind of invented Britney, and to make good music”, before adding, “She’s such an amazing vehicle to getting that music out to a lot of people in every country.”

Spears looked fresh-faced yesterday as she was spotted out again in Beverly Hills. Is it just me or does she shop more than any other celebrity? It seems like she HATES being at home or something. Of course with her conservatorships still in place, she probably feels like a prisoner.
