We're counting down the days until Britney Spears releases her music video for "Hold It Against Me." We're so close! We also can't wait until the album.
One of the songwriters that Britney worked with, Claude Kelly, recently chatted with the Orlando Sentinel about what to expect on the album.
"I would say [';Hold It Against Me' is] the tip of the iceberg because that's the very beginning of a whole album," he explained, adding that this album will be "darker" and "edgier" than 2008's Circus, though it will "still [have] fun pop records."
Femme Fatale won't release until March 29 and the final touches are still being put on the album. Kelly still doesn't know which songs will make the cut. "[Luke and Martin are] in charge, but I've written a couple songs," he explained. "I'm not even sure myself what made the cut. I know there's something workable in there, but I worked on her last album as well, so it's kind of a continuation of that. But it's a little edgier this time, darker. It sounds grimier and dub step and danceable."
So what's it like working with Britney? "For me, I get inspired by the artist that I'm working with. With Britney, she's really not afraid to try anything," he explained. "So it allows you to be more creative and say sexier things, say more mysterious things with her. It's kind of all things go."
Another act Claude has worked with recently is the Wonder Girls. Find out a little more about him below and see who he's written songs for.
