Britney Spears fans, get ready. The Princess of Pop is set to release new music this summer.

Spears announced that she will release a new song, titled "Ooh La La," in summer 2013, and it will be featured on "The Smurfs 2" soundtrack. "Smurfs 2" is set to hit theaters July 31.

"I have always loved the Smurfs as a kid and now my boys are the biggest Smurfs fans EVER," Spears said in a press release about the new song obtained by Billboard. "I wanted to surprise them with a song in the movie. I know they'll think it's Smurftastic!"

"Ooh La La" was produced by Lukasz "Dr. Luke" Gottwald and Ammo Cirkut, who worked with the 31-year-old on "Femme Fatale," according to Billboard. Bonnie McKee, J Kash, Lola Blanc and Fransisca Hall are credited as writers.

Aside from collaborating with will.i.am on his recent track "Scream & Shout," Spears has not released any solo music since 2011's "Femme Fatale," which debuted at No. 1 and moved almost 800,000 copies. That album included mega-hits like "Hold It Against Me" and "Till the World Ends."

Spears, whose upcoming album is rumored to drop in the fall, left her "The X Factor" gig in January to get back into the recording studio. Entertainment Weekly reported Spears is busy working with Hit-Boy, the producer behind Kanye West and Jay-Z's "N***as in Paris" and will.i.am's "Scream & Shout."
