Britney Spears Back in the Studio, Says Producer

June 20, 2008 1:55 PM ET

Britney Spears is working on a new album, according to Jim Beanz, a vocal producer who's a frequent Timbaland collaborator and worked on several of Spears' Blackout tracks. "Everyone has personal stuff, but a true professional doesn't bring it into the studio," Beanz, who says he's working with Britney again, tells Us, adding, "Britney is amazing." Since the release of Blackout last year, Spears has reunited with Larry Rudolph, her longtime manager who guided her through her golden years (and who Spears promptly fired after emerging from rehab in 2007). Spears is currently taking a break from recording, however, as she's in Louisiana to be with her sister Jamie Lynn, who just gave birth. Spears was recently in London starring in (and co-directing) the video for "Radar," which will be the next single from Blackout, in which she searches the city for a boy she met in a club. As for Spears' conservatorship — her father, Jamie, remains in control of her legal affairs — the matter will be reviewed in a Los Angeles court on July 31.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
