As the queen of pop gears up to release her eighth studio album, Britney Spears has decided to take a time out and dedicate her success and this album to her devoted fans.
The pop singer decided to take the time out of her busy schedule to write her fans an open letter on Friday to thank them for their everlasting support and devotion throughout her long lasting career.
Britney shared some information about the creative process of her new record, which Britney herself has reported is entitled Britney Jean, as well as released her album artwork for her upcoming album on her official website.
The cover was sure not to disappoint. The pop icon went with a revealing black and white look, showing Britney topless, though keeping it classy. Britney poses with an intense look, porting a small smile at the camera, with a blue and pink heart shaped neon sign in front of her that reads the album title, Britney Jean (photo above).
Britney did a little revealing in her open letter as well, as she put her heart, feelings and gratitude on paper. She revealed that she is putting the finishing touches on the album, which will soon be complete and sure to please.
Britney Jean is scheduled for release on December 3 and you can see the full letter below!
I haven’t sat down to write you guys in SUCH a long time. Long overdue! We’re all so used to getting our thoughts out in 140 characters, but sometimes its nice to take time to sit down and write something a little longer and more personal. I am putting the finishing touches on my new album, “Britney Jean” over the next few days and I am so excited for you to hear it. I poured my heart and soul into this album and it’s been an incredible journey. I’ve learned a lot about myself, and as I am finishing, I am reminded of the incredible foundation that has supported me for the last 15 years. Thank you all for continuing to follow me on this journey and for allowing me to do what I love to do. I can’t believe this is my eighth studio album and I know I keep telling you that it is my most personal record yet, but its true and I’m really proud of that.
I have been through a lot in the past few years and it has really inspired me to dig deeper and write songs that I think everyone can relate to. Working with people like Sia, William Orbit, and of course Will.i.am has been an amazing experience. They have listened to all of my ideas and helped me bring them to life. There are a lot of really fun, upbeat dance songs, but it was important to me that I show my strength, and my attitude, and my vulnerability. Of course, I also have some surprises for you guys 😉
I want to show you the different sides of Britney Spears. I am a performer. I am a Mom. I am funny. I am your friend! I am Britney Jean.
Hope you love my labor of love.
