Daily B: Britney Tweets With William Orbit, Spearitual ‘Ray Of Light’ Now Imminent

by Bradley Stern


When it comes to producing for The Holy Spearit‘s Album 8, tentatively titled Blackout 2.0: It Gets Urbaner and More Spearitual (We’re Just Having Lots of Lunches Right Now), we all know them producers are talking all this stuff about B: Danja is submitting tracks! DJ Replay is submitting tracks! Dev Hynes is submitting tracks! Scoop DeVille is submitting tracks! Sabi is submitting tracks! Amanda Bynes is submitting tracks! I’m submitting tracks!

However, when Ray of Light producer William Orbit started tawking that tawk on the Twitter, everybody hushed and just stopped. (REFERENCE.)

As we already knew, this isn’t the first time Orbit planned to work with Brit Brit. Years ago, he was sent to the writing camp for Femme Fatale — but none of his tracks made the cut. It was a massively upsetting moment. But he’s back on B’s ray-duh now…and she just can’t let him get away.

And so, the Godney did tweet:

With B-Girl’s confirmation on Twitter, it looks like Album 8 really, really will be a Spearitual Ray Of Light (but, y’know, also urban.) Praise Kabbalahney’s light!

And, yes: Orbit’s listening to the fans. A lot. He’s been tweeting back and forth with the Godney Army, RTing for Brazil, agreeing that Britney needs songwriting credits, loving on “Unusual You” and speaking in Englishney all the live long day: When @LucyLoveGodney demanded there be no Auto-Tune on Album 8, he replied: “Auto-what? Never heard of it !!!” And when @IfUSeekGodney requested to know if we’re getting “experimentalney, vocalney, deepney and songwritney,” he replied: “All of the above and more if i can have any bearing on the matter. and add herdreamney, herheartney. But nuff said 4 now.”


But he’s only kept on going: “A ballad, Must be timeless. From the heart. We know a true one when we hear it. #NOFLIMFLAM” he tweeted yesterday. A timeless ballad for Britney — from the maker of Madonna‘s “Frozen”? I can’t. Even. Begin to. (Side note: A song called “No Flim Flam” would also be great.)

    We need a EPIC ballad. Yes, I’m on that (taking in consideration I’m not a big fan of them in general) but It would be nice.

    Buuut, I’m trying not to believe this, I mean, I’m trying to have my expectations down so later If the plans changes I don’t get dissapointed. So I’m glad Brit told him to be quiet and he showed obedience.

    I actually enjoy this song, but deep down I kinda hope it’s not a runaway hit. I don’t need an album of Ooh La La’s from her. Pop music is so boring to me lately, if only because it’s all based on the same model. Super lightweight electropop held together by breezy little guitar riffs with uninspired breakdowns taking the place of a proper middle eight. Basically every song aspires to be Party in the USA. I’m really banking on her new album to bring back some of my lost pop enthusiasm.
