Shellback Contributes with Three Tracks on New Britney Set

CHART SPOTLIGHT. The world is counting down to the new Britney Spears set Femme Fatale, which is slated for release on March 25.  WelcheMusic is really proud of fellow Swede Shellback, who contributed on no less than three tracks on the upcoming set. Née Karl Johan Schuster in 1985, producer Shellback is a prolific musician. He penned/produced recent hits such as “Fuckin’ Perfect” (P!nk), “DJ Got Us Fallin’ in Love” (Usher) and “Whataya Want from Me” (Adam Lambert/P!nk).

WelcheMusic covered Shellback when he placed “Raise Your Glass” on the charts back in December last year. Shellback has a background from local rock bands such as Skörda and Blinded Colony. He joined the Maratone production studio in 2007 with nestor Max Martin. Shellback’s breakthrough came with “If U Seek Amy,” Britney’s 2008 hit.

On Femme Fatale, Shellback wrote “I Wanna Go” and “Up and Down” with Max Martin and Savan Kotecha, “Criminal” with Tiffany Amber and Max Martin. Note that “Up and Down” is a bonus track.

P!nk Returns to the US Top with Swedish Help

P!nk returns to the Billboard Hot 100 throne with the help of Max Martin and Shellback.  “Raise Your Glass” was the first single to be lifted off the greatest hits album, and one of the new tracks. The final track to be released as a single from Funhouse was “Glitter in the Air” which peaked at No.18 this January.

It’s not the first time Shellback and Max Martin elevates P!nk to the throne. The duo contributed with three tracks on the Funhouse album, including the No.1 “So What.” The 25-year old Shellback was born Karl Johan Schuster and reigns from Karlshamn, Sweden. Before becoming a full-time songwriter, Shellback had a background as a metal/hardcore band member (very similar to Max Martin’s background).

This year, Shellback has written hits such as “DJ Got Us Fallin’ in Love” with Usher and Pitbull as well as the brand new Robyn track “Time Machine,” from her third Body Talk installment.
