She has teamed up with writer Elijah Blake for the new record, who has previously written songs for Rihanna and Usher.

The writer said: “I think her fans will be surprised by it. I would say it's definitely the 'unexpected' Britney in so many ways, in that she's playing with new textures and stomping on new grounds and genres."

He later responded to a Britney fan’s tweet by adding: “I've definitely had the pleasure of starting on something I think is going to be big with her.”

The singer’s latest song with Will.i.am entered the Irish charts at number eight last week – however it looks set to do considerably better in the UK where it is expected to hit number two behind the X Factor winner James Arthur's single.
