Pop princess Britney Spears has found a novel way to preview her new material - sneaking it onto a New York club DJ's playlist.

According to the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS newspaper, Britney - whose comeback LP is due to hit shops later this year (03) - crept into the SHOW nightclub this week (begs14JUL03) and handed resident disc-spinner Dj Cassidy a copy of her new CD.

Cassidy then played revellers two of Britney's new songs, so the singer could gauge the response.

According to the newspaper, Spears was satisfied with the crowd's reaction - so she slipped out again, unnoticed.
