Swedish producer Shellback, who worked on the upcoming Britney Spears album, recently gave a radio interview, and not only talked about his time in the studio with the pop sensation, but also that he and other producers - Max Martin and Doctor Luke - are auctioning off the guitar used on her first single!

Here are some HIGHlights from the interview:

Q: If you are asked to make a song/some songs for Britney's new album, what's the first step or how do you do it? It's still a lot to live up to because there are many who listen.

A: "It works in many different ways. You can make something absolutely new, or take a beat that's three years old and come up with a good sound."

Q: Has Britney or her manager called and told you what sound they are looking for, or is it free for you to choose?

A: "It's quite free, but may not have to make Spanish folk music. You should find something new and it should sound "Britney."

Q: And then you've obviously met her?

A: "Of course"

Q: How is it working with her?

A: "She's actually damn professional. You read a lot on the Internet that Britney is not singing and mimes, but she is actually damn professional. She's done it since she was 16. And just rhythmic way, she is fucking awesome! And you do not have to go through and talk about the rhythms and stuff that you sometimes have to do, she's very easy in the studio."

Q: Shellback, you Max Martin and Dr. Luke, have donated something very special for "music action" (organization), tell me about it?

A: "It is a lovely white Hag guitar (this Swedish guitar-inheritance), which is used on one of Britney's new songs."

Q: When is the album released again?

A: "The album is said to be released in March, and in January the new single will be out"

Q: The guitar I'm looking at right now is signed by you Max Martin, Dr. Luke?

A: "Exactly"

Check out a picture of the guitar (above)!

It's a real beauty! And what an awesome thing to auction off!

We cannot WAIT for new Brit Brit! We wonder how prominent the guitar sound will be on the track!

Thoughts??

Adam Lambert On His Grammy Nom

adam lambert talks about his grammy nomination

Adam Lambert is excited about his Grammy Nom, and he's got a lot to say about it!

He's been nominated for best male pop vocal performance for his song Whataya Want From Me, from his 2009 debut album.

Here's Lambert on learning about his nomination:

"I was awoken by my manager in the morning while in Paris. Much more effective than my usual cup of coffee to wake me up. I was so excited! After our call, I saw that a bunch of friends and family had texted and written emails."

And here's what he had to say about the song that got him the nomination:

"I recorded Whataya Want From Me on a day off from the Idols Live Arena tour and I was pretty wiped out due to the show schedule. I knew the song would be a key track on my album and it was my first time working with the incredible Max Martin and Shellback, so I was a bit apprehensive. The vocal ad libs at the end were the most challenging as they are quite high and it had been a long day. When I heard the first mix, I felt really confident the song would have success thanks to the flawless production."

And here's Lambert on how he's not just a product of American Idol:

"I believe American Idol is a dream platform for any artist. It did not however, teach me how to sing or perform. I made music for years prior to the show but knew that most major labels wouldn't be interested in me as a mainstream pop artist unless I could develop a legitimate fan base and prove that I had talent. Idol gave me these opportunities. But I feel I earned my current success by preparing and executing a variety of strong performances every week on the show and being comfortable being different."

And more about the nomination:

"In addition to the writers and producers of the track, I hope that at this point, after all the hard work I've done over the past year, the nomination will give me credibility as a true vocalist in the industry, and perhaps help fade some of the stigma that comes from rising to fame on a competition show."

We're proud of you, Adam, and we wish you the best of luck with the Grammys!
