Britney Spears has sprung a leak. Over the weekend, the previously unheard cut "Unbroken" from her Femme Fatale era hit the 'net. Produced by Fraser T Smith, the demo version of the track proves that Britney still has that pop hit potential, even if that isn't clear from Britney Jean.
The rough, muddled audio version of "Unbroken" features high electronic blips and rushed, building verses that explode into a club-friendly chorus. A post-chorus breakdown brings the focus back to the beat, as steady drumbeats drop in, preparing listeners for the dance floor.
Though inevitably cut from Femme Fatale, there's a real strength to "Unbroken," and it's clear that this track was recorded in the same sessions as eventual Femme Fatale singles and strong tracks such as "I Wanna Go" and "Till The World Ends."
Plus, really, this is more fun, pure dance pop than any of that EDM-inspired mess we got on Britney Jean. Take note, this is how electronic infused pop can be done correctly with Ms. Spears.
