New Album To Get “Grimier”



Britney is getting down and dirty!

Co-executive producer of the new album, Dr. Luke, tells Billboard Britney is "an icon."

"She's been around for a while and always delivers, so there's a lot for us to live up to," he said.

Dr. Luke has not yet met with Britney to collaborate on the album, but says he has creative ideas in mind to mix up her typical music scene.

"I want [the sound] to get harder in some ways, and maybe a little more deep into electronic -- grimier."

Dr. Luke anticipates the album will debut in the Spring of 2011.
