MTV News reports that Britney Spears is getting closer to announcing a release date for her fourth album, but the NFL may have prematurely announced one for her. The NFL web page promoting the singer’s upcoming appearance at a September 4th season kickoff concert in Washington, D.C., noted in three places that Britney’s upcoming album would drop November 18th. Those mentions have since been removed, but Britney’s official Web site (britney.com), having long gone without an update, has new information on it this week, including a line about the album coming out in November. Spears’ label, Jive, has yet to announce or confirm an official release date.
