Britney Spears: the DFA demo

Oh, there can't even be any question: there's gotta be some domestic tension over at the Mr. and Mrs. Spears residence. Can it be any coincidence that, less than a week after K-Fed leaks his big hipster move -- a debut baile-funk single -- his wife's most coveted unreleased track finally surfaces? They said it would never be heard, and frankly there've been times we thought this thing was completely apocryphal, but it's out: the song the DFA produced for Britney. The beat is a little more Neptunesy than you're used to hearing on a Tim Goldsworthy production -- compressed clickology tricked out by LL's bells, a repetitve buzzy synth stab, and what might charitably be descibed as a scratch vocal by the star. In other words: cue the anticlimax. Not even mad at this, though, because OTD has been secretly dying to here this for like two solid years. Now we can rest easy. (Thank you, spotted via Tonight Let's Dance.)
