( CBS NEWS) – Britney Spears has said her new album is a “personal” one, and it has a personal title (“Britney Jean,” her first and middle name), and the pop star is continuing that theme by penning a personal letter to her fans.
The handwritten note was posted on Spears’ website Friday. In it, she talks about putting the finishing touches on the record and thanked fans for the support they’ve given her.
“I have been through a lot in the past few years and it has really inspired me to dig deeper and write songs that I think everyone can relate to,” she wrote.
“Britney Jean,” Spears’ eighth studio album, will be released Dec. 3, the day after her 32nd birthday and the same month she’s due to begin her concert residency in Las Vegas.
