Media Control Germany, which represents German record labels, has added the date for a new Britney Spears release today, listed for 10th August 2007. The full details are listed as "to be announced," but it is expected that this will be the release date for the new single in Germany; the label is listed as "Sony BMG/Jive/Zomba Records."
Here's an email I got:
Hey, my name is Maurice and I'm from Germany,
I've contacted Media Control to ask about a confirmation about earlier reports that Britney's new single is supposed to be released on August 10, 2007.
They answered that they have NO information about a future Britney single in their data base. They offered me to contact SonyBMG which is responsible for Britney here in Germany.
So evidently, there is no new single planned for a August 10th release. Sorry guys!
Best wishes, Maurice
