Pop singer Britney Spears confirmed that "Alien" will be released as a single sometime from her latest album "Britney Jean." During the documentary "I Am Britney Jean" on Sunday night, she and her manager Larry Rudolph revealed the news.
"I Am Britney Jean" on E! showed Spears prepping for her upcoming Las Vegas show "Britney: Piece of Me." In many scenes, she debated including "Alien," a song near and dear to her heart, on the show setlist. Spears later decided to include it in the second set of "Piece of Me" shows since "it will be a single" by then.
"I was thinking about for the show maybe using 'Alien' for the second set of shows because it will be out by the time," Spears told her manager. "It will be a single. I think it just makes more sense to put it out then."
"At that point it will be a single anyway," Rudolph responded.
So far "Work B**ch" and "Perfume" have been issued as singles from Spears' "Britney Jean" album. She wrote "Alien" with Madonna "Ray of Light" producer William Orbit. He supplies galloping beats and enchanting electronic production as Britney details the loneliness felt before finding love. "But the stars in the sky look like home / Take me home / And the light in your eyes lets me know I'm not alone," she sings on the gorgeous track.
Spears' "Britney Jean" album was released on Dec. 3. Her Las Vegas show will open on Dec. 27.
