It’s Remixes, B*tch: Britney Spears Gets Mixed Up on New Compilation

with one comment

A slight break from yesterday’s activities of more classic pop/rock-oriented catalogue action to shine the spotlight on some dance collectibles from one of pop’s more recognizable faces. Britney Spears is releasing a second volume of dance remixes for your bum-shaking pleasure in October.

B in the Mix: The Remixes Volume 2, a sequel to the starlet’s 2005 compilation (one of the top 10 best-selling remix albums, as it happens), collects remixes of tracks from her last three studio efforts, Blackout (2007), Circus (2008) and this year’s Femme Fatale. Most of them are making their debut on CD or commercial disc, while one track, “Criminal,” will be the single to tie in with the set. (Apparently, this release will close Spears’ longtime contract with Jive Records; she will join the RCA Music Group – also owned by Sony Music – under the guidance of newly appointed label head Antonio “L.A.” Reid.)

The set is out October 7 and can be ordered after the jump (same place the full track list is). Our thanks to super reader Hank for reminding us about this set.

  1. Wow—thanks for the shout-out! And I’m always looking for credible information on international/promo Britney releases, although fewer and fewer of them have been appearing in recent years. Starting with the “Circus” album, actual glass-burned Jive promos (as well as 12” vinyl releases) essentially became a thing of the past—I believe the “Till The World Ends” promo listed is, in fact a CD-R. Tracks 3, 4 & 5, however, did all appear on a neat little Taiwan promo a couple of years ago. Thus, by my estimation, tracks 7, 8 & 10 will be making their official, non-CD-R, glass-burned, physical CD debut.

    Other places where these tracks have previously appeared on CD:

    Track 1—Europe 5-track CD single 88697-18680-2
    Track 2—Jive 6-track remix promo 88697-23531
    Track 6—Europe 4-track single 88697-28617-2

    Other reports state that the European edition of BITMV2 will have a slightly different tracklisting (moving “Criminal” from track 10 to track 1, and substituting the “Radio Mix”). There are reports that the Japanese edition will have bonus tracks, but the tracks themselves have not yet been confirmed.
