Britney Spears’ ninth studio album Glory dropped late Thursday night.
The 35-year-old pop star wants you to know that the album marks the “beginning of a new era,” and a cursory listen might have you believing her. It’s her first release since 2013’s Britney Jean, a confessional pop record that by most critical accounts failed to hit its mark. Glory doesn’t want to take itself so seriously, which might be a good thing.
Spears announced the album’s release on Twitter; there’s an accompanying hashtag that features a neat little sketch of the singer.
The album comes just a day after the news that Lifetime would be making a biopic about Spears — a project that Spears and her management have actively distanced themselves from. Spears also appeared on James Corden’s latest Carpool Karaoke segment Thursday night.
You can listen to Glory on Spotify.
