'Britney Jean' Confirmed As The Name Of Spears' Eighth Album

Britney Spears' eighth studio album finally has a name. The 31-year-old singer announced this week that her next album will be called "Britney Jean."

Spears, whose middle name is Jean, made the announcement on Capital FM. "It's a personal album and all my family, they always call me Britney Jean," she told the radio station. "It's a term of endearment and I just wanted to share that with my fans."

As to which artists are featured on the album, Spears said, "You'll have to wait and see." Watch Spears' interview with Capital FM above.

Spears may have hinted at the album's title in a roundabout way earlier this year. She made an announcement about her upcoming Las Vegas residency on "Good Morning America" from the dessert in the Jean Roach Dry Lake Bed in Jean, Nevada.

"Britney Jean," which is due out on Dec. 3, is led by the hit single, "Work Bitch." Spears has teased two additional songs on the album: a ballad "Perfume" which she called "really beautiful," and a song with producer William Orbit dubbed "Aliens," which she described as "really cool" and "really great."
