britney spearsBillboard reports that will.i.am has gone and blabbed some more about how the process of executive producing Britney Spears' next album is coming along.

"We start next week," he said, speaking at the Museum of Natural History in New York. "Before we even start we've had these juicy sessions, where we've been bonding, building the trust and comfort. I've never worked like this before – not even the Peas."

'The Peas.'

He continued: "I said [to Britney], 'Let's talk about what you're excited about. Let's talk about things you've done in you career, what you're happy about. Let's talk about spending time with your kids, let's talk about your breakup. Let's talk about how now you're single, how inde­pend­ent you might feel.'"

The theme of 'inde­pend­ence' has brought us some solid songs in the Britney dis­co­graphy so that sounds like a decent path to follow.
