Larry Rudolph: Britney's Album Nearing Completion

Britney’s entering the homestretch of finishing Album 8, manager Larry Rudolph tells MTV News.

“We’re getting close to being finished, we’re probably three or four songs away,” Rudolph said. “We did a listening session the other day, just to take stock of everything we have, and it’s just one song after the other, it’s amazing, it’s really good. I know she can’t wait for her fans to hear it, too.”

Britney’s first single, “Work *****,” off the untitled album is a club smash, but isn’t an accurate reflection of album as a whole.

“The album definitely is not just ‘Work *****.’ This is a situation where there are multiple, multiple layers, things like you’ve never heard from her before,” he said. “There’s a lot that fans expect, but a lot that they don’t … She’s written on every song on the album, which is a first for her, and it’s a very personal album for her, and I think people are going to love it.”
