Britney Spears Without Auto-Tune — You Have Been Warned! (AUDIO)
The original unedited version of Britney Spears’ “Alien” from her latest album “Britney Jean” has leaked online and…YEEESSSH!
Track producer William Orbit issued a statement that explained that what you hear is a vocal warm-up session and not a final take.
I’d like to affirm that ANY singer when first at the mic at the start of a long session can make a multitude of vocalisations in order to get warmed up. Warming up is essential if you’re a pro, as it is with a runner doing stretches, and it takes a while to do properly. I’ve heard all manner of sounds emitted during warm-ups. The point is that it is not supposed to be shared with millions of listeners. A generous singer will put something down the mic to help the engineer get their systems warmed up and at the right level, maybe whilst having a cup of herb tea and checking through lyrics before the session really kicks off. It’s not expected to be a ‘take.’
I’ll let you listen (if you dare) and decide for yourself.
