Everything You Need to Know About Britney Spears’ March Album

Britney Spears interrupted her reps' non-stop flow of tweets shooting down tabloid rumors to announce some actual news: Her new album will arrive in March! Then she responded to tabloid rumors: "PS - Star Magazine, Radar Online, Jason Alexander and the rest of you liars, Ya'll can kiss my lily white southern Louisiana ass!" Here's everything we know about Brit's seventh (!) studio disc:

Britney Says It's Awesome!
The first review is already in: "I AM IN L-O-V-E WITH IT!" she tweeted.

The Swedish Guy Who Made Her Biggest Hit Is Back ... One More Time
Max Martin, the pop wunderkind who bestowed Spears with "... Baby One More Time" is working on the new disc. Martin contributed bubblegummy creations to Brit's first three albums, then vanished until "Circus," when he rolled out the cleverly naughty "If U Seek Amy." He also produced the less-cleverly naughty "3," off "The Singles Collection."

The Swedish Guy's American Counterpart is Back, Too
Dr. Luke, the song doc who helped manufacture smashes for Kelly Clarkson, Katy Perry, and Ke$ha, is also returning for LP7, after working on "Circus." Since news broke that he'd be co-execuctive producing Spears' disc, he's been tantalizing fans with tweets like, "Time to get this song out the door and out to mix.. I think you know what artist i'm talking Bout... RIghT??? ;-)"

The Album May Sound "Grimier"
"I want [the sound] to get harder in some ways," Dr. Luke told Billboard, "and maybe a little more deep into electronic -- grimier."

Our Favorite New British Pop Star Is Working on a Song
Jesse J, the wild U.K. import who wrote "Party in the USA" for Miley Cyrus, tweeted that she was sent a beat and is working up a melody line for a possible new Spears track. No guarantee it's going to make the disc, though.

A New Single Could Arrive in January
Fan sites are reporting the album's first song might drop January 7th or 11th. Their sources? Unknown, but the label would have to get the ball rolling approximately two months before release, so the claim isn't outlandish.

There Won't Be Any Songs About Brit's New Freedom...
Because she'll still be under her strict conservatorship until at least the end of 2011.
