Britney Spears has streamed her new album on iTunes a week ahead of its release.

The 'Till The World Ends' singer's eighth studio album 'Britney Jean' - which is scheduled for release on December 2 in the UK and a day later in the US - is available online and includes 10 tracks on the standard edition and three more songs and a remix on the deluxe edition.

The album - which she began recording in May this year - has singles which were produced by William Orbit, Diplo and David Guetta and includes collaborations with T.I. and the star's sister, Jamie Lynn.

The blonde beauty's record is the ''most personal album'' to date and most of the tracks were influenced by her ex-fiancé Jason Trawick whom she split with in January.

She previously said: ''It's my most personal album. I went through a breakup this year and a lot of the album has to do with that.''

Britney has been very hands on during the production of the record because she is ''perfectionist'' and stocked up on sushi and skittles to get her through the all night studio sessions.

She is currently busy preparing for her Las Vegas 'Piece of Me' residency which is set to kick off at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino on December 27, where she will perform 50 shows over the next two years.
