A supposedly ‘leaked’ version of Britney Spears’ vocal for Alien before her voice was autotuned for the final track.
Producer William Orbit has since released a statement claiming the vocal was a pre-recording warm up. To wit:
I’d like to affirm that ANY singer when first at the mic at the start of a long session can make a multitude of vocalizations in order to get warmed up. Warming up is essential if you’re a pro, as it is with a runner doing stretches, and it takes a while to do properly. I’ve heard all manner of sounds emitted during warm-ups. The point is that it is not supposed to be shared with millions of listeners.
