The Truth And Nothing But The TruthJanuary 4, 2005
Facts are starting to leak out about what is going on with Britney’s career with the shocking release of a new song, “Mona Lisa,” on KIIS-FM in Los Angeles. After hype of a much anticipated new album from Britney a Jive Records spokesperson confirmed that Britney is indeed in the “very early” stages of working on an album. A new album that Britney said she is hoping to release as early as this Spring. However, the spokesperson did acknowledge that the album is not on Jive’s release schedule. What true die hard fans are wondering about is the contract! Fans were believed that the contract with Britney was completed with the “Greatest Hits” album, however, rumors of the 4 album contract could have been wrong. The song played on KIIS FM was a rough mix and still and may not be the complete song when it is released.
“We got a call on the request line from Britney Spears saying she wanted to come by and play her new song,” KIIS-FM music director Julie Pilat said. “Then she showed up and world-premiered her new song,” which is called “Mona Lisa.”
“It definitely has the raw thing going on it,” Spears said during her station visit. “I recorded this song when I was on tour, right before I hurt my knee. It was done, I think, four or five months ago. My band, we didn’t use ProTools or anything with it. It’s all live. There’s a lot of stuff you can do to make it better. It’s going to get better. It will get better — this is a really, really rough mix.”
What was the inspiration for the song? Britney dedicated the song, which is described as a slinky, midtempo, to the “Ladies and gentlemen, I’ve got a story to tell/ About Mona Lisa, and how she suddenly fell/ See, everyone knew her, they knew her so well/ Now I am taking over to release her from her spell.”
Furthermore, Britney said she wants “Mona Lisa” to be the first single off the untitled albm, she hasn’t decided a name for the album yet, however she is leaning towards “The Original Doll.” “It’s untitled right now,” she said during her visit to KIIS-FM. “It’s not even all the way done.” She also said that she hoped to release the album “probably before summertime, or maybe a little sooner than that.” thanks britneyspears.com
