Her fans said Gimme More and Britney Spears is responding with the debut of her fifth studio album — and accompanying single — as early as next week, People.com reports.

The 25-year-old’s new single, Gimme More, has been called an “up-tempo” dance track that “music insiders love,” by EW.com. The album remains unnamed.

Singer/songwriter Ne-Yo told American Idol host Ryan Seacrest on his radio show yesterday that Spears’ new music is “definitely up-tempo.”

He added, “She’s gotta remind people why they love her in the first place.”
