Britney’s Back With a Brand-New Album

After years of ups, downs, mental health issues, disastrous performances and a legal conservatorship, Britney Spears is back with a new pitch-perfect pop album. “Glory,” her first release since 2013’s disappointing “Britney Jean,” drops on August 26. Packed with 12 songs — 17 on the deluxe version — “Glory” is a return to form for Britney, with its hook-filled electronic beats and catchy lyrics mixed with Britney’s distinct, trademark voice.

As her ninth studio album, it’s an impressive achievement for a pop star. At 35, Britney’s been on the scene for nearly 20 years now, defying every scathing review and expectation.

To promote “Glory,” Britney did an episode of “Carpool Karaoke” with James Cordon and will also perform at MTV’s Video Music Awards. This performance will be almost ten years since her disastrous turn on the stage in 2007, when she wandered aimlessly and seemed to forget her own lyrics. She’s come a long way, seeming at ease and in a good mood on “Carpool Karaoke.”

In other Britney news, Lifetime has announced that it’s creating a two-hour biopic about her life. The movie will star Natasha Bassett as the blonde bombshell. According to reports, it will detail her rise from Louisiana schoolgirl to the biggest pop star in the world. It will cover her tumultuous relationship with fellow singer Justin Timberlake, as well as her personal mental health struggles and marriages to Kevin Federline and Jason Alexander. Production will begin in September for a planned 2017 release.
