Britney Spears To Release "The Singles Collection"

On November 24th, after 10 years in the music industry, Britney Spears will release The Singles Collection, which is set to feature the new song "3." Produced by Max Martin, "3" hits radio on Tuesday, September 29th. As for The Singles Collection, it will come in two editions: an ultimate fan box set & a standard edition. While the standard edition will include 17 hits along with "3," the ultimate fan box set is a whole other monster. It will consist of a separate slip sleeve case for all of Britney's 29 singles (including "3") with original artwork that'll also include a b-side with or remix of each featured song. Additionally, a DVD with all of Britney's videos in chronological order & a photo-filled booklet with "fun facts about each track" will be thrown in. Yes, the box set sounds cool. No, I won't be able to afford it. Is this necessary at this point? No. Does it irk me a bit? Yes. Why, after Britney's only released two albums since her last greatest hits package--one of which she didn't even promote, is this coming out NOW?! Greatest Hits: My Prerogative was a really nice set & after four hit-filled albums, it made sense, especially with a DVD full of hot videos showing Brit at the top of her game. Now we're supposed to shell out oodles of $$$ (during a recession!) for the "Piece Of Me" & "Circus" videos, ONE new song, & some pretty packaging? I'm WAY more interested in these Las Vegas concert/filming in 3D/ABC special rumors!
