It’s been a long two-year wait between albums for Britney Spears fans, but now the pop star has finally confirmed a new album is in the works. Get excited.

Spears, 33, took to Instagram and Twitter to fill her followers in on the upcoming music, posting a caption that read, “Working hard and hardly working…new album…wheeeee!” Whee indeed, Brit.

The upcoming album will be the singer’s ninth and comes two years after the release of Britney Jean, which featured the hit single “Work Bitch.”

Those following the pop star on social media might not be surprised by the news. Spears has actually been teasing the possibility of new work on social media, and three weeks ago, she shared a cryptic photo of herself in the studio that got fans talking about the possibility of a ninth album.

Britney has also been using the hashtag #B9 to hint that she’s working on some new music, suggesting maybe that’s the name of the upcoming record. Time will tell.

But, Britney, we’re 100 percent ready to hear your new album.
