Britney Spears is "spending her summer in the recording studio" to work on her next album, according to a statement from Jive Records and the artist's manager, Larry Rudolph.

Spears is said to be working "with a team of top-notch producers and songwriters" not named in the statement, but JR Rotem, Sean Garrett, Guy Sigsworth, Danja and Bloodshy & Avant have all independently revealed that they're contributing to the as-yet-untitled project.

The new album, for which no release date has been confirmed, will be the follow-up to last year's "Blackout," which has sold 879,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

The album was largely overshadowed by Spears' tabloid-fodder personal life and her disastrous performance of the single "Gimme More" during the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards in Las Vegas.

As reported last week, Spears will appear in a video that will be used during a sequence of Madonna's upcoming tour.
