Britney Spears has hired a vocal coach as she prepares for her comeback.

The 'Toxic' singer recently teased fans with the prospect of a big announcement by unveiling a mysterious countdown on her official website. "ALL EYES ON ME" are the only words on the countdown page and at the time of writing the ticker has around 21 days remaining.

A spokesperson for Spears told Digital Spy: "Britney has been using a vocal coach and going to regular sessions and has also been working hard with her choreographer in preparation for what's coming up!

"With album eight on its way and a rumoured Las Vegas residency in the pipeline, eagle-eyed fans have spotted that all of Britney's social networks have adopted a blacked-out theme... the mystery continues!"

Meanwhile, Charli XCX has confirmed that she has written and submitted a new song for Britney Spears forthcoming new album. "I've been doing some writing for the Britney record. I was freaking out. I didn't even want to go to the session I was so excited. I was so worried I would fuck it up," said the 21 year old. "I was doing some stuff for that yesterday actually. Who knows how it will go. We've written one song and it's a great track and if she likes it then amazing. It was just an honour to be asked."

It was recently reported that Spears will head to the Lake District to work on tracks for her forthcoming album with UK producer, and Tinie Tempah collaborator Naughty Boy as a producer on the project. He is apparently planning to take her to Cumbria for creative inspiration.

As well as Naughty Boy, Spears' collaborators on her forthcoming album, the follow-up to 2011's 'Femme Fatale', include Dev Hynes aka Blood Orange, William Orbit, Sia and will.i.am.
