Britney Spears announced last month that her new album will drop on December 3, her first new material since 2011′s Femme Fatale.
And it’s going to be a personal experience for the 31-year-old singer, as she’s naming it Britney Jean. Jean is the singer’s middle name.
“It’s a personal album and, like, all my family, they always call me Britney Jean,” Spears said during an interview on London’s Capital FM Radio Tuesday. “It’s like a term of endearment, and I just wanted to share that with my fans.”
December will be a big month for the pop superstar. Brit turns 32 on December 2, her new album comes out the next day and she’ll then start her Las Vegas residency with her Piece of Me show at Planet Hollywood on December 27.
