Los Angeles - Britney Spears is going Ooh La La for the Smurfs with a song for upcoming summer movie The Smurfs 2, movie studio Sony Pictures said on Wednesday.

"I have always loved the Smurfs as a kid and now my boys are the biggest Smurfs fans EVER. I wanted to surprise them with a song in the movie," the pop singer and mother of two said in a statement.

Her recording Ooh La La will play at the end credits for The Smurfs 2, a part animated, part live family comedy due for release on 31 July.

Spears, 31, is working on a new studio album following her Femme Fatale release in 2011, and is in talks for a long-term contract to perform in Las Vegas.

She released her latest single Scream & Shout in November last year in collaboration with rapper Will.i.am and quit her job as a judge on The X Factor earlier this year after failing to boost the audience for the TV talent show.
