    One of Britney's best album titles! Cover is great! but not sure about the 'Femme Fatale' font, though...

    I dunno if this has been seen on here yet!


    A 4-track sample from Spears' new album is already being sent to some big names. The promotion has pretty much changed - Jive has chosen to sent it to blogs and web icons instead of the big vehicles which had never failed to underestimate Britney during the "Circus" era.

    "Hold It Against Me" starts the ride with the dubstep inspired break and pumping beats that the fans are already used to. But it's only a little part of the surprise, "Antidote", the second track from the sampler, brings new cards to the table when it comes to the pop tart. Taking classes from Ke$ha, Britney showcases her rap/sing abilities alternating distorted vocals - think Daft Punk - in a disco-infused song. Best track from the sampler.

    "Switch You On" is the typical sexy midtempo. Britney oozes sexuality whispering throughout the verses and ending the chorus with the lyrics: "If I turn the lights off / I wonder if it would switch you o-o-on" suceeded by an unplugged electric guitar.

    "I I I Wanna Go O O" is, perhaps, the weakest track on the sampler. The typical Dr. Luke bass and Martin's doll-esque vocals makes the song sound like a Sugababes' "About You Now" revival. Not quite there.

    So we have..-

    Hold It Against Me
    Antidote
    Switch You On
    I I I Wanna Go O O

    Titles are sounding great... This Era is coming together...

    Just want the Video now!!!

    Femme Fatale really fits with the outtake of her lying in that bed. She looks BEYOND sexy there. I can't wait to see some more pictures.

    Now, we finally know why she's not yet promoting! She hasn't finished the whole album yet.

    I don't want to hear another "She should start promoting and stop being controlled as a puppet in the studio" issue again! :x

    Rolling Stone Exclusive: Britney Spears' Producer Dr. Luke Reveals Details About Her New Album


    Exclusive: Britney Spears' Producer Dr. Luke Reveals Details About Her New Album
    Britney still choosing songs for March 15's 'Femme Fatale': 'We're in the middle of it right now,' says Luke

    By Steve Knopper
    FEBRUARY 2, 2011 12:35 PM EDT
    Britney Spears announced today that her new album, due March 15, is titled Femme Fatale – but the superstar singer and her Los Angeles producers are still choosing songs and determining the final direction of the overall sound. "It's not done," Dr. Luke, co-producing the album with longtime Britney collaborator Max Martin and Montreal dance-pop songwriter Billboard, tells Rolling Stone. "We're in the middle of it right now. It's a little bit fluid right now. I can't even say at this stage what songs for sure are making it and what songs aren't. We're working with a lot of producers and overseeing it with her A&R and record label and management and trying to make something cohesive."

    The album, of course, will contain "Hold It Against Me," co-written by Dr. Luke, Martin and Bonnie McKee, the hot songwriter who penned Katy Perry's "California Gurls" and Taio Cruz' "Dynamite." Spears' new single made its debut on the pop charts in mid-January at Number One, before dropping to Number Six last week.

    Originally, Dr. Luke and Martin, the Swedish songwriter behind some of Spears' biggest hits, including "…Baby One More Time," planned to give the song to Katy Perry. "We might have played it for her, but it definitely wasn't a Katy Perry record," Dr. Luke says by phone from Conway Recording Studio in Los Angeles. "We had it for a while. I wanted to make sure it didn't sound like everything else I've done. I brought it into Billboard, and he just killed it. It can be hard in the verse, and the bridge is super, super hard, but the chorus is super-pop. You can play that chorus acoustically on a guitar and it's still going to sound great."

    Top 40 radio stations continue to spin "Hold It Against Me" in regular rotation. "It feels like a really obvious, easy-to-listen-to first single," says John Ivey, program director for KIIS in LA, which played the song once an hour the first day it came out. "You hear all those little parts that are so Britney – 'here's the video-breakdown-dance part of the song.' That's what my listeners love about her."

    Although her 2008 album Circus sold fewer than 2 million copies, not a huge number given Spears' history of blockbuster sales, retailers have high hopes for the March release. "[Circus] ended up doing well, but we were a little cautious about it — a little tense comeback issues were going to be relevant," says Mark Hudson, music buyer for Trans World Entertainment, who predicts the new album could sell 500,000 copies in its first week. "But this time around, her stock is higher."

    Dr. Luke also noted that he and Martin, the executive producers, plan on working on several songs directly in addition to "Hold It Against Me." He also confirmed Bloodshy (who co-produced Spears' classic "Toxic") and Benny Blanco (who worked on Ke$ha's "Tik Tok" and Perry's "California Gurls") were among several big names who would make production appearances.

    So far, Spears has dropped by the LA studio two or three times to lay down her vocals. "Britney's really fast," Dr. Luke says. "She gets it done."

    So, March the 15th is the date? Well, nice!

    Her best album cover has to be the "Britney" one in my opinion.

    I get the "femme fatale" vibe from her look and everything but she needs to be dressed in red or something. Rather than the deceptive angel look which doesn't translate too well in a still picture.
    Angelic damsel in distress can turn out to be most dangerous femme fatale

    I don't like that she's covering her face in promo pics! :x

    Anyway, I'm glad that the photo is not photoshopped! The HQ photo really shows the lines and pores on her skin!
