A video of Britney Spears  singing "Alien" without any Auto-Tune quickly went viral this week, prompting the song's producer to speak out. The video, posted on July 2, features Britney's voice, but producer William Orbit took to Facebook  to clarify that the recording was a warmup, writing, "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 vocalisations in order to get warmed up." He added, "The point is that it is not supposed to be shared with millions of listeners." He also gave a shout-out to Britney's talent, saying, "It can in no way detract from the fact that Britney is and always will be beyond stellar! She is magnificent! And that's that." Listen to Britney's warmup above, then check out the final track below.
