Britney Spears' new album, "Circus," has been leaked online. Her sixth album is widely seen as a milestone. After a tumultuous year in 2007 where she faced a child custody fight (and lost), shaved her head, and was hospitalized twice for psychiatric reasons, the 26-year-old artist has seemingly rebounded, reuniting this year with Madonna on-stage and winning three MTV Video Music Awards.
KTU New York, a radio station, is hosting the official "Beat the Leak Mix," which includes six tracks from the album: Womanizer, Circus, Out from Under, Kill the Lights, If U Seek Amy, and Unusual You. "Womanizer" was first released on radio in September and became so popular that it topped the Billboard Hot 100 list.
There are 15 total songs on the complete album, which is scheduled for release on December 2, her birthday. Britney Spears will also appear on "Good Morning America" that same day to promote the collection.
