Britney Spears Releases Her First ‘New’ Song in Four Years

2nd June 2020 | Category: Concerts

Britney Spears has rereleased a song that was previously unavailable to most fans, “Mood Ring (By Demand)”. This makes it her first “new” single in four years.

“Mood Ring” originally appeared on the Japanese deluxe version of Spears’s 2016 album Glory

Then, it received positive reviews from critics and reached No. 3 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart. 

However, thanks to the efforts of her fans, the album hit the top of the iTunes Pop Charts in early May.

As a thank you for their dedication, Spears rereleased the album with brand new cover art, as well as the addition of “Mood Ring.”

“Repurposed this since we didn’t use it:

You folks wanted a new album cover ….. ta da there you go!!!!” Spears tweeted. “What was requested next is out now….. I hope you turn #MoodRing up sooooooo loud.”

Mood Ring co-writers Melanie Fontana and Jon Asher admitted they were shocked that the song has topped the charts four years after the album was released.

Fontana told Billboard: “As I awoke to Britney’s Mood Ring being No. 1, I was instantly catapulted backwards in my mind, landing in the middle of my childhood bedroom, watching the little version of me sitting on a carpeted floor covered in unfolded album inserts, my old Sony headphones on, researching all the names behind the artists I love.”

Asher added: “I had literal tears and chills when I found out! The success of Mood Ring is truly a grassroots effort on behalf of the Britney Army and fans across the world.

They gave this song the breath of life and took it to where it is right now.”

Recently Spears also celebrated 20 years of her hit album Oops!… I Did It Again, and she has thanked her fans for sticking with her.

The legendary album was released on May 16, 2000 and it held the record for 15 years for the biggest sales week ever for an album by a female artist.
