While Katy Perry and Lady GaGa were forced to face off against each other after releasing their new singles just a day apart from each other, Britney Spears is planning to arrive fashionably late to the pop diva party. A countdown timer (which currently stands at 28 days) has just appeared on her official website, along with the words, "All Eyes On Me," which is probably the title of her new single. Spears hasn't actually confirmed what the timer's even for just yet, but we're guessing that it's for the single since British producer, Naughty Boy, was quoted this past weekend telling Digital Spy that it'd arrive, "in another couple of weeks."

There's no release date on Britney's eighth studio album just yet, but we do know a few things about it. Firstly, will.i.am has executive-produced the whole thing, which could go either way. We also know that Britney's recorded with Sia and William Orbit, and that the album will apparently be more urban and personal than 2011's EDM-driven Femme Fatale. The latter is hardly surprising since it's the exact direction that commercial music is headed in right now, and Britney's always been good at keeping up with the mainstream music trends.

Are you looking forward to the The Holy Spearit's return?
