She's working, bitch. Britney Spears revealed in Billboard's latest cover story that she's working on her upcoming ninth studio album. The "Ooh La La" singer most recently released Britney Jean in December 2013.

"I'm gonna do [a new album] slowly but surely," Spears, 33, told the mag. "There's a lot going on with my kids and schools and, you know, adding new sports and stuff like that. I'm gonna try to do my best to do an amazing album, but it's not my full priority right now."

She quipped: "Kids can drive you crazy."

The "Toxic" entertainer has more than just her sons Sean, 9, and Jayden, 8, to keep her very, very busy. Spears, who shares her boys with ex-husband Kevin Federline, may extend her Las Vegas residency for another two years through 2017. Spears has been rocking out on her Piece of Me show since 2013, and is inked until late 2015.

"Right now we're just concentrating on putting out a few great singles as they come," Spears' longtime manager, Larry Rudolph, told Billboard. "We're not really talking seriously about a new album yet. Albums just aren't as important in the digital age as they used to be. Britney will get to one eventually, but not right now."

When not on stage, she's also preoccupied with a special someone. The singer has been dating boyfriend Charlie Ebersol, the son of Saturday Night Live co-creator Dick Ebersol, since November 2014.
