Who else is super excited? I think it'll be a ravey EDM track with big vocals. Especially if Sia wrote it.

With Britney working with a vocal coach whilst doing dance practice, makes me thing she's going to really step it up with her performances. Still probably have a loud backing track, but like Gaga where she sings over it for verses.

All signs point towards Britney getting back to her best for the new album era. I hope the lead song is a real standout track... both fresh and a monster..... I'm thinkin' along the lines of maybe Toxic, Gimme More or even Till The World Ends.

I guess we've only got a few days to wait until the song is officially premiered!

I keep singing Ciara and Missy Elliot's "Work" song in my head! I love that song so if it has similar vibes then great!

If it's a big bittersweet dance song, which is Sia's trademark, then that's even better!

December 3rd is the main rumour for the album release! I hope it is! Circus did well for her when released December 2nd!

I'm terrified it'll do a Blackout and underperform in the US! This Autumn/Winter is verrrrrry competitive for releases in the States! Katy, Gaga, 1D, Miley, Eminem! I've hope that this single/album will be properly promoted and not fly under the radar for the general public!

Work Bitch? Really? Obviously Britney (or her management more like) have realised that her career at the very top is over and now she's just going to attempt to appeal to her gay following.

Its weird because for the first time in forever it feels like something really interesting is about to happen with Britney. I just hope she promotes this time that way she might actually start having hits again.

You say that like its a bad thing. Obviously Britney has zero chance of having 14 year olds relate to her the way they do Katy Perry or Rihanna so it would be pointless to try and appeal to that market now. They attempted it with her last album and it didn't work. Appealing to the gay market at this point is genius on her behalf as like Kylie is the place for pop veterans to be.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I read somewhere that she said in an interview that she has nothing left to prove now and she wants to continue making music for her fans. And not all her fans are gay! Some might be but that doesn't mean gays are her only fans.

As much as I would like to think this era will be Britneys return to form, we've been here before, sounds & looks promising all to be let down. Although i hope am wrong.

I just saw from a pretty reliable source on twitter what the song is about:

"You can hear RuPaul's voice on the song telling Britney to 'work' and dance harder just like criticism has done through the years"

"Lyrics are about all the critics, like 'Britney can't dance anymore' 'old Britney is dead' ' she can't sing' 'she is not happy'"

Dunno if it's true but if it is then that sounds pretty darn amazing.

Haven't we been here before though MATM about keeping up with the music getting in the zone and well working it. and critic bashing Piece Of Me. Not that i'm complainign i love the idea and it does have huge relevance but old ground perhaps.

The only way any of this can work is if she is wholly invested again. FF was a flop of a fnatastic album let down a by a lazy attitude and unwillingness to fully commit. I'm hoping for the best but first Circus failing to ignite then FF i'm keeping my excitment low for now in terms of full on Kylie like comeback.

No, it's just that it's very niche. Some people seem to have higher expectations with regards to her ability to compete, mentioning Gaga, Katy, Miley etc. having upcoming releases but she's hardly going to with this sort of thing. In terms of my own opinion, I don't mind a bit of campness but this sounds almost sickly camp.

I imagine the song will get quite crazy then at the end, and in the video, with Britney like trying to out-do or keep up with herself dancing.

Like Beyonce's Pepsi ad but on crack.

The song is said to be mid-tempo with will.i.am producing it. I'm hoping for something like Gimme More then, as I consider it mid.

I hope that the title doesn't feature too heavily in the lyrics otherwise we can expect a lot of blanks on the radio!
