Brtiney Spears’s 'Alien' apparently follows in the footsteps of fellow pop star Katy Perry’s 'E.T.' in terms of subject matter. Not so much in terms of sound though. The track was leaked today then promptly removed from YouTube and similar sites due to copyright claims. Before 'Alien' could be pulled, however, plenty of people got the chance to hear it. The track, produced by William Orbit (appropriate for a song called 'Alien'), is a mellow, warm tune, very different from Miss Spears’s previous single, 'Work B***h.'

'Britney Jean' will be out December 3.

Unfortunately those Britney fans, who like to get their music the legal, if a bit more expensive way, won’t be able to hear 'Alien' in full for some time. Of course, the song – along with 'Work B**ch' and any other singles Brit and her management decide to bless us with in the mean time, will also be on Britney Jean, the pop princess’ (or would that be queen at this point?) sixth studio album, due for a December release. This includes the upcoming 'Perfume,' which Spears was spotted filming the video for earlier this week.

Things are about to get very intimate in Brit's upcoming video.

According to Us Weekly, the video shoot included a steamy makeout sesh (there’s no other way to describe this kind of thing, folks) with a male model in a dessert region of southern California. The singer was clad in a low maintenance tank top, jeans and boots combo, while her love interest sported that all-time slacker favorite – a plaid shirt and jeans. So we’re expecting a very emotional, lovey-dovey video, especially considering that the song includes lyrics like "And while I wait I put on my perfume, yeah I want it all over you, I gotta mark my territory."

It appears that Britney is getting back to her poppy, emotional roots with Britney Jean. 90s kids, rejoice!
