britney chair'I Love Rock 'N Roll' inter­preter Britney Spears spoke to Ryan Seacrest about what we can expect from her upcoming album.

"Will [as in will.i.am] has a lot of really inter­est­ing different tracks that I've listened to that are really cool that I haven't actually written on yet," she said, "but there's a lot of guitar and I think people will be surprised with this album. It's going to be really different."

'A lot of guitar'.

Descriptive as always, Britney also mentioned the album will be coming out "by the end of the year" and will include pro­duc­tion from William Orbit, whom she's "really, really excited" to work with.

This should all be quite good as long as there are no Smurf film tie-ins.
