    Spears does it again with new album Glory


    BRITNEY Spears, who soared to stardom as a teen idol before a highly public fall, is releasing an album one more time.

    She announced on Wednesday that her ninth album, Glory, will come

    out on Aug 26.

    "My new album and the beginning of a new era,"

    she wrote on Twitter.

    Spears last month released a first song, Make Me...,

    a steamy track with a touch

    of tropical house music

    and a contribution by

    rapper G-Eazy.

    Glory will be Spears'

    first album since 2013's Britney Jean, which largely kept her signature pop sound and was her lowest-charting album to date.

    The former child star became one of the top-selling artists of the late 1990s with tracks such as ...Baby One More Time and Oops!... I Did It Again, whose clean-cut

    pop production belied the undertones of uninhibited teenage sexuality.

    But her messy personal life quickly eclipsed her music career. She had a highly public breakup with fellow star

    Justin Timberlake, married twice in 2005 alone and was caught on camera nearly dropping one of her two children off her lap

    while driving.

    But the now 34-year-old has found more stability with a Las Vegas residency show, which debuted in late 2013.
