Default Soil conditioning help

I built my raised bed ( 9'x36' ) 6 years ago. It is my first veggie garden so I just winged it and filled it with with topsoil. i have been doing no til the last 5 years and my garden soil is now seems like it is mostly clay and compacted.

Here is what I am thinking of doing and would appreciate feedback or a better plan if you have one. I am planning on tilling it about 6-8" deep and add about 3" of cotton burr compost and til it again. Is there anything else I should add? Is the cotton burr compost the recommended treatment to loosen up the soil? I appreciate your help.
