Britney Spears is giving fans a taste of what to expect on her new album [article id="1594761"]Circus,[/article] out December 2. The singer is previewing tracks from the album via the Web site for New York radio station KTU, as well as Amazon.com.
On KTU's site, there is a six-song "Beat the Leak" mix, featuring the album's first single, [article id="1595702"]"Womanizer,"[/article] as well as the title track, "Out From Under," "Kill the Lights," "If U Seek Amy" and "Unusual You." The songs are mostly dancey numbers, with the exception of "Out From Under," which is a ballad.
And Spears isn't afraid to get personal on the album. On "Kill the Lights," she sings, "Mr. Photographer/ I think I'm ready for my close-up/ Tonight/ Make sure you catch me from the right side," clearly referring to the constant media attention she receives.
On Amazon, where 30-second snippets of all 15 tracks are available, fans can sample the album's many club-friendly tracks — including "Lace and Leather" and "Unusual You," which has more of a trance vibe — as well as ballads like "My Baby."
Spears recently made her return to the stage when she appeared at the [article id="1598804"]Los Angeles stop of Madonna's Sticky & Sweet Tour[/article] last week. Britney, wearing black pants, a white tuxedo-style shirt and black heels, joined Madonna on "Human Nature." Justin Timberlake also made a cameo, but the former couple didn't appear onstage together.
In other recent Britney news, she won two trophies at this year's [article id="1598808"]MTV Europe Music Awards[/article]. She followed her VMA victories by scooping up prizes for Best Album (for Blackout) and Act of 2008. She was also nominated for a [article id="1599009"]People's Choice Award[/article] earlier this week for her cameo on [article id="1583848"]"How I Met Your Mother,"[/article] where she played a love-struck receptionist.
