RCA has declared that the eighth studio album from pop superstar Britney Spears will more than live up to expectations, Billboard reported Tuesday.

Britney Jean is scheduled to be released Dec. 31 and will be the latest offering from Spears. Peter Edge, CEO of RCA Records, said that they were excited about the disc.

"We're feeling really good about the Britney album. We're not quite sure how the credits are gonna be, but's really the main creative on the album -- but he won't be the only one. He has a lot of great songs," Edge said.

Edge gave a sneak peak as to what the second single from Britney Jean could be. 'Work Bitch' was released in September to much fanfare. It has thus far peaked at #12 on Billboard Hot 100.

"There's a song we feel fairly strong will be the second single called "Perfume." It was written by Sia and could be a big career song. It's more of a downtempo song, but people are amazed at the quality of her vocals on it. She sings it beautifully and it has a real sincerity to it. And it's outstanding," he said.

Edge felt that fans and critics would be pleasantly surprised by Spears.

"I think people are not only gonna be surprised but also see another side of Britney. There's a lot more personal content on this album than we've seen from her in the past," he said.
