It was reported earlier this week that Britney Spears had recruited people like Julia Michaels and Charli XCX to write songs for a new album, but Rolling Stone confirmed that it was actually Britney’s team who reached out. “Right now, management and A&R are trying to get her excited for the music,” the source says. “As of right now, she’s not actively in recording but they’re getting [songs] done to present to her.” But Britney herself responded to the reports yesterday in a fiery Instagram post. “Just so we’re clear most of the news is trash !!! They keep saying I’m turning to random people to do a new album … I will never return to the music industry,” she declared. “When I write, I write for fun or I write for other people !!!” Still, Spears has released songs with Elton John and Will.i.am in recent years.
