Britney Spears is ready to release new music within a matter of weeks, according to her producer pal Rodney Jerkins.

Representatives for the Toxic hitmaker’s record label, Jive, confirmed in March the singer had begun work on her seventh studio album, although a release date had yet to be announced.

Hitmakers including Danja and Predator Dub Assassins have all revealed they’ve been in the studio with Spears and now superproducer Jerkins has hinted an announcement regarding the new material is imminent.

During an interview on UStream at the weekend, Jerkins said, “Britney fans are gonna be so happy in a few weeks.”

However, he refused to provide more details about the project.

Spears’ upcoming album will be her first in two years – her last disc, Circus, was released in 2008.
