New Britney Spears single hits the web
Friday 04 March 2011
Britney Spears' club-friendly new single, "Till the World Ends," hit the web on March 3, a week before it was rumored to debut on radio waves next week.
Over the past two weeks, Spears has been posting 20-second previews of new songs from her upcoming album, Femme Fatale, which will drop on March 28 in the UK and March 29 in the US. Hours after "Till the World Ends" leaked, she wrote on her Twitter page: "Looks like the cat's out of the bag..."
The new track, penned by Ke$ha, is now available for purchase via iTunes. Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton also posted the track on his site, and viewers can listen via unofficial YouTube pages. On her Twitter page, Spears promised to play a final version of the track on Ryan Seacrest's US-syndicated radio show on March 4.
The 29-year-old Spears also enlisted the aid of producers Dr. Luke and Max Martin - who have also worked with US pop stars Katy Perry and Pink - on the new album, which will be her seventh studio release.
The album's first single, "Hold It Against Me," which leaked in January but officially dropped January 10, has reached number one in seven countries, including the US, Canada, and Belgium.
One of the best-selling music artists in the world, Spears is reported to have sold more than 100 million records worldwide. Her last album, Circus, released in 2008, reaching number one on album charts in the US, the UK, Canada, and Russia. The album's first single, "Womanizer," was an international hit, reaching the top of the charts in more than 20 countries.
