Leaked Audio: Britney Spears Without Auto-Tune!
Track Producer Backs Her Up
Ok, so we’ve heard Britney Spears’ real voice without auto-tune before… but this latest leaked audio is still just as cringe-worthy as ever!
An unedited version of Brit Brit’s track Alien, from her latest album Britney Jean, suddenly appeared online recently and of course it quickly got a lot of attention.
So track producer William Orbit had to release a statement backing up the singer, saying that the audio is of a vocal warm-up session, not Spears' 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,” Orbit wrote.
“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,” he added.
“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.’”
We’re not sure what to believe but either way, we still love you Britney! Listen to the audio below and decide for yourself.
