Welcome back to another edition of ‘Discover Britney,’ where we highlight Britney songs that were not released as singles. This way, you can share a song a week with people that have not yet had the chance to hear flawless tracks from Britney’s albums. Spread THE word!
If you are an avid Britney stan, you will know that almost every track from a Britney album (in an ideal world) should have been released as a single. So many people have been deprived of some of the most timeless tracks and we feel that they should be heard. Join BritneyGalaxy on Spotify, where we will add one track a week to our ‘Discover Britney’ playlist. Your gym playlist is set for life!
Electropop ballad, ‘Unusual You,’ marks our first entry from Britney’s sixth studio album, ‘Circus.’ This enchanting ballad reels you in from the very first note, Britney’s soft tone matches the soothing guitar and calming piano flow in perfect harmony.
Disappointingly, this brilliant track never reached the single status. There was however a promotional and radio release in France and Australia (Sent to radio stations in Australia), however the song never really got the push it rightfully deserved. The song has been compared to the likes of Gwen Stefani on numerous occasions and we would have to agree, there is something about this track that feels like it was inspired by Gwen’s single, ‘Cool,’ a track just as refreshing. The song focuses on that feeling of new love, however there is a dark undertone that hits a little close to home when it comes to Britney’s past relationships that makes this song feel so authentic and heart felt. ‘Didn’t anyone tell you, you’re supposed to break my heart? I expect you to. So why haven’t you?’ Following a very recent heart-break (or two), the lyrics could not have been more deep and meaningful. The track was written and produced by Christian Karlsson and enlists the help of fan faves’s ‘Bloodshy & Avnat,’ both responsible for penning some of Britney’s greatest hits and clearly a match that we would love to see more and more of. ‘Sweet surprise, I could get used to,’ took the words right out of our mouths..
Best Lyrics: ‘Been so many things when I was someone else, Boxer in the ring tryin’ to defend myself.’
