Tässä hieman lisäinfoa Britney Jeanin eilisestä kuuntelusta:
About 100 people gathered for a listening party tonight for Brit’s upcoming eighth studio album, where they were treated to a preview of “Alien,” “Perfume,” “Tick Tick Boom” featuring T.I., “Don’t Cry” and “It Should Be,” featuring will.i.am, who hosted the event at his Hollywood studio. “It’s my most personal album,” Spears said. “I went through a breakup this year and a lot of the album has to do with that.”
In between tracks, Andy Cohen moderated a chat on a makeshift stage with Spears and Will.i.am. The pop princess called herself a “perfectionist” about work.
“I love what I do so I have a hand in everything that I do,” she said. The 31-year-old showbiz veteran also revealed her favorite snack foods while recording—sushi and Skittles! Spears looked fab. Her signature blond hair was down and fell over her shoulders. She wore tight black pants, a sleeveless black shirt and black heels. She said of the new album, “I want people to listen to it and be inspired.” –E!Online
Britney Spears went back to basics Thursday (November 21) with an intimate listening party for her new album, Britney Jean. Spears played four never-heard tracks for the room, plus her latest single “Perfume,” which she described as a “vulnerable song.” Looking past the lyrics, “Perfume” is a rare gem in Spears’ repertoire. With her vocals front and center, the song is synthesizer free and chock full of emotion. “We wanted to treat her vocal as the main character of the song,” said Will.i.am.
But for fans eager to hear more club-ready bangers from the pop princess, fear not: “It Should Be Easy,” featuring vocals from will.i.am, delivers with thumping beats, synthesized vocals and a dance-ready groove. As does the smash “Tick Tick Boom,” featuring T.I., which —much like the title —sneaks its way towards a supersonic climax in the chorus. Both tracks demonstrate Spears’ ability to truly excel on her uptempo material, and will have longtime Britney fans dancing like it’s 2003.
But it’s not all party jams on Britney Jean. “Alien” is a midtempo but powerfull follow-up to 2007’s “Piece of Me” that chronicles Spears’ life in the spotlight. “We all have moments in our life where we feel a little alienated,” Spears said of her fame. On the chorus, the singer assures listeners that they’re “not alone.” And on the breakup anthem “Don’t Cry,” the 31-year-old tells the story of saying goodbye to a lost love. “I’ll survive,” she sings, but “you don’t need to see me cry.” –MTV
