Britney Spears Announces Ninth Studio Album, ‘Glory’
We've been kept waiting and seeing (and waiting, and seeing) for this moment ever since 2013's Britney Jean, but she's here now: Britney Spears' ninth studio album, Glory, is now available for pre-order starting tonight at midnight (August 4), and will be released on August 26.
Yes — that's just three weeks away. And the deluxe edition is 17 songs (!) long.
Along with the pre-order news, the Living Legend™-turned New Queen Of Soul's sexy "Private Show," which also soundtracks the fiyah hot commercial for her latest fragrance of the same name, is available now as an instant grat track upon pre-order.
"#Glory. My new album & the beginning of a new era. Available 8/26 on @AppleMusic. Pre-order tonight at midnight ET," she wrote on Twitter.
"Make Me," the lead single from Glory, was released in July.
“It’s the best thing I’ve done in a long time. I’m proud of the work, and it’s very different; it’s not what you would think at all," Britney said of Glory back in March in her V Magazine cover story.
“It’s different, it’s a turn. The last few albums have been pretty straightforward pop. This is almost like if you can imagine Britney meets The Weeknd. It’s got a really interesting vibe, it’s a lot of really cool stuff," manager Larry Rudolph teased to the Las Vegas Sun back in February.
Along with a Tumblr Q&A and a few Aussie radio interviews, Britney appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! tonight alongside a troupe of shirtless male dancers to give Jimmy an unannounced wake-up call, "Make Me" style. Rise and shine...it's Britney, bitch.
Are you ready for what's next? Take your seat now...
