Producer Shellback: Britney Is A Professional, “Fucking Awesome”



Swedish producer, Shellback, who's collaborating with Max Martin & Dr. Luke on Britney's new album, glows about working with Britney in the studio in a new radio interview this weekend.

The interview is a rough translation from the original:

quote:

Q: "If you are asked to make a song/some songs for Britney's new album, what's the first step or how do you do it? It's still a lot to live up to because there are many who listen.

A: "It works in many different ways. You can make something absolutely new, or take a beat that's three years old and come up with a good sound.

Q: "Has Britney or her manager called and told you what sound they are looking for, or is it free for you to choose?

A: "It's quite free, but may not have to make Spanish folk music. You should find something new and it should sound "Britney".

Q: "And then you've obviously met her?"

A: "Of course"

Q: "How is it working with her?"

A: "She's actually damn professional"

"You read a lot on the Internet that Britney is not singing and mimes, but she is actually damn professional. She's done it since she was 16, and just rhythmic way, she is fucking awesome!"

Q: "And good timing right?"

A: "Yea and you do not have to go through and talk about the rhythms and stuff that you sometimes have to do, she's very easy in the studio"

Q: "You, Max Martin and Dr.Luke have donated something very special for a music action. Tell me about it?"

A: "It is a lovely white Hag guitar (this Swedish guitar-inheritance), which is used on one of Britney's new songs."

Q: "When is the album released again?"

A: "The album is said to be released in March, and in January the new single will be out"

Q: "The guitar I'm looking at right now is signed by you Max Martin, Dr.Luke?"

A: "Exactly"


Pictured above is the three producers posing together with a guitar they used in Britney's first single. They're donating the guitar for a music organization.

So refreshing to hear how professional Britney is in the studio! Looking forward to her new single in the next few weeks!
