'My new album & the beginning of a new era,' she wrote on Twitter


Britney Spears fans can rest easy. After months of speculation and rumors, Spears has announced her next album, Glory. The collection is due out Aug. 26 and is available via Apple Music for pre-order at midnight Wednesday night.

The reveal follows Spears’ most recent single, “Make Me,” which debuted in July with a feature from rapper G-Eazy. It was the first new music Spears had released since dropping “Pretty Girls” with Iggy Azalea last summer. When fans pre-order Glory, they’ll also receive a new track, “Private Show.”

She last released a studio album, Britney Jean, in 2013, but she confirmed last November that she had been working on its followup. At the time, she told E! News, “We’re having fun right now. I’m working with some women who are amazing writers. I have ballads and, of course, dance music – fun, cheeky, sexy stuff.”

Spears also revealed details about Glory in a recent Tumblr Q&A. When asked when the album would drop, she said, “Soon… Very soon!” and told fans, “We really explored some new things.”
