Dr. Luke is feeling the pressure to perform as co-executive producer for Britney's next album. Luke, who co-wrote and produced "Circus," "Lace & Leather" and "Shattered Glass" off Britney's 2008 album Circus, is collaborating with producer Max Martin ("Baby One More Time," "If U Seek Amy") and is worried he won't live up to her fans' immense expectations.
"She's such an icon, I don't want to let anyone down," Dr. Luke told The Hollywood Reporter. "But most importantly, I want to make good music."
Luke anticipates the album will be out in early 2011, while an insider tells THR, it will definitely hit stores before March 31.
A Jive Records rep would not comment on a release date or confirm a time-line.
Spring's just around the corner!
