Britney Spears is definitely letting fans know how much they mean to her and how personal her upcoming album, Britney Jean, means to her.

Today, the pop star unveiled the cover art for her new album which can be seen above as well as a handwritten letter thank her fans for sticking with her throughout all her career. The letter was posted on her officially website, but the actual message can be read here:

Dear Fans,

I haven’t sat down to write you guys in SUCH a long time.  Long overdue!  We’re all so used to getting our thoughts out in 140 characters, but sometimes its nice to take time to sit down and write something a little longer and more personal.  I am putting the finishing touches on my new album, “Britney Jean” over the next few days and I am so excited for you to hear it.  I poured my heart and soul into this album and it’s been an incredible journey.  I’ve learned a lot about myself, and as I am finishing, I am reminded of the incredible foundation that has supported me for the last 15 years.  Thank you all for continuing to follow me on this journey and for allowing me to do what I love to do.  I can’t believe this is my eighth studio album and I know I keep telling you that it is my most personal record yet, but its true and I’m really proud of that. 

I have been through a lot in the past few years and it has really inspired me to dig deeper and write songs that I think everyone can relate to.  Working with people like Sia, William Orbit, and of course Will.i.am has been an amazing experience.  They have listened to all of my ideas and helped me bring them to life.  There are a lot of really fun, upbeat dance songs, but it was important to me that I show my strength, and my attitude, and my vulnerability.  Of course, I also have some surprises for you guys 😉

I want to show you the different sides of Britney Spears.  I am a performer.  I am a Mom.  I am funny.  I am your friend!  I am Britney Jean. 

Hope you love my labor of love!

Love Always,
Britney”

Britney Jean is scheduled to be released on December 3, just in time for fans to learn the new songs before checking out her residency at Las Vegas’ Planet Hollywood for the next two years.

It’s been a few weeks since Britney Spears released the music video for her new song “Work Bitch” and over a month since she announced tat she would be releasing a new album later this year.

Up until now, we have not had the official name of the album so for all purposes it had been called Britney’s eighth untitled album. Today, while paying a visit to Capital FM, the pop star revealed the name of the new album and it looks like it’s similar to 2001’s title.

Spears revealed that her upcoming album which is schedule to be released on December 3 will be titled, Britney Jean. Spear’s explains in the interview with the radio station that the album is “more personal” which led to her to name it after what her family and friends call her.

“It’s a personal album,” says Spears, “and all my family, they always call me Britney Jean — it’s like a term of endearment, and I just wanted to share that with my fans.”

Check out the reveal right here:

Britney Jean will be the pop star’s follow-up to 2011’s Femme Fatale. But while the new album was big enough news for fans, some are still reeling about the fact that she has taken a residency in Las Vegas; signing on to perform at the Planet Hollywood.

Her show, Britney Spears: Piece of Me is slated to start in December 27, 2013, just enough tine for audience members to learn all her new songs, and will run for two years, so if you want to check out her show in Vegas, head on over and get some tickets before they sell out.
