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 ******* 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!
