It’s almost hard to believe it was just a week ago when Christina Aguilera announced the release of her eighth studio album. With a new album, a massive tour, a previously scheduled live television performance, and a bumping single, what is a pop star to do? Release another new song, apparently.
On Friday (May 11), the “Beautiful” singer debuted “Twice,” her second official single off Liberation. Listen to the brand new, four-minute ballad above.
“Twice” will join Aguilera’s Kanye West-produced first single “Accelerate” on her forthcoming album. Liberation is due out June 15 via her longtime home of RCA Records. Pre-orders for Liberation are currently available on Aguilera’s website.
In support of the 15-track album, the pop star announced earlier this week plans to hit the North American touring circuit in the fall for her first tour in over ten years. The Liberation tour will kick off on Sept. 25 at the Hard Rock Live Arena at the Seminole Hard Rock in Hollywood, Florida and conclude a month and a half later on Nov. 13 at the Mahaffey Theatre in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Tickets for the upcoming trek will go on sale beginning next Friday, May 18, at 10 a.m. local time. Every tour ticket purchased will include a free copy of Aguilera’s new album. The full list of Liberation tour dates can be found here.
Aguilera was recently confirmed as one of the many performances set to take the stage during this year’s Billboard Music Awards. Demi Lovato will join Aguilera on stage for the live debut of their song “Fall in Line.” The 2018 Billboard Music Awards will take place on May 20, live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The complete event will air live on NBC beginning at 8 p.m. EST.
