With a little more than a month to go before the March 29 release of [artist id="501686"]Britney Spears[/artist]‘ Femme Fatale, we spoke to her longtime manager, Larry Rudolph, on the same night her eagerly anticipated “Hold It Against Me” video premiered .
Rudolph revealed to MTV News during our “HIAM” live stream on Thursday night that fans will likely hear another new song before the album — executive-produced by Max Martin and Dr. Luke — comes out.
“We have a second song that I think we’re gonna end up putting out before the album drops,” he teased. “I can’t say with 100 percent certainty, but I think we probably will. But we’re talking about it now and it is a monster. It really is.”
Rudolph has been by Brit’s side since the beginning of her career, and he predicted that if fans love “HIAM,” then they’re in for a real treat with the next song.
“I don’t think I’ve been this excited about releasing a Britney single in many, many years,” he added. “It’s that good. That’s all I’m gonna say about it at the moment. I haven’t heard a final mix of it, but I should get it in the next day or two. So far, what I’ve heard is just extraordinary. It really is amazing. Her fans will be very happy with it. I’m trying hard to get it out before the album comes out.”
Spears teased some upcoming promotional plans for the album last week during a Twitter Q&A . “I’m doing a lot of promo,” she said. “There will be some major announcements in the next few days.” She added, “I’m thinking about the tour right now and I would [love] to visit a lot of places I didn’t get to go to on my last tour.”
