All eyes on Britney Spears as countdown begins

UNP Image Smurfs 2 was only the beginning. More new songs from Britney Spears are etching closer to becoming a reality, as on Tuesday the artist took some hype-building lessons from former beau Justin Timberlake and placed a countdown clock on her website to tease new music.

At the time of posting, we’re just less than 28 days from the release of what Spears is calling All Eyes on Me, presumably the new single off her upcoming eighth album. Spears has thus far offered no details on All Eyes on Me but has remade her site over to showcase nothing but the countdown to the morning of September 17.

Earlier this year Timberlake used a similar countdown clock when he was releasing new tunes, but Timberlake had fans waiting a weekend rather than almost a full month. A new Spears album would make this a rather pop-heavy fall, with new efforts from Katy Perry and Lady Gaga also on the horizon.

Spears has been teasing new music this summer on Twitter, pleading patience on August 13. That same day, Black Eyed Pea-turned-producer-for-hire will.i.am took to social networks himself to say that he has been busy working with Spears.

Spears, who has long been reported to be prepping a Las Vegas for later this year, posted on Facebook on August. 3 what she dubbed an album ‘recipe’ — largely just a run-down of some of her biggest hits. Will.i.am for his part later revealed that dance producer William Orbit, a regular Madonna collaborator, would be doing behind-the-boards work on the Spears effort.

Spears teamed up with will.i.am. for his late 2012 single Scream & Shout. While the song was part of his clunker of an album “ #willpower,” the digital single itself has sold well, having been legally downloaded more than 3.2 million times in the US, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Spears’ Smurfs 2 cut, Ooh La La, has performed more modestly. Since the song’s release earlier this summer it has sold 153,000 copies.
