Officially announced on London's 95-106 Capital FM yesterday, Britney's upcoming eighth album will be called Britney Jean. Why? "It's a personal album, and all my family, they all call me Britney Jean, it's like a term of endearment, and I just wanted to share that with my fans." Not completely unlike her 2001 album, which was similarly called Britney, it will be out December 3 and likely have collaborations with every working musician on the planet.
