Two Unreleased Britney Spears Demos Leak Online

Britney Spears recorded some dark tracks in the making of 2013’s “Britney Jean.” They didn’t make the album’s final cut, but now they’ve  hit the Internet.

Indie-pop producer Dev Hynes, who’s worked with Florence + the Machine and Solange Knowles, told The Guardian that he was “actually so stoked about [the songs] — something I don’t say often. But they’d always come back with why they didn’t like it and it wouldn’t make any sense. I’d almost prefer them to say: ‘We’re scared we’re not going to make any money, so we’re just going to use Will.i.am.’ It’s funny — the people in charge of a lot of these artists … I don’t want to say they’re not real people, but it’s not a fan sensibility. I feel like that’s what makes the best music, when people are a fan of the person they’re working with.”
