Pop-music has changed drastically over the last decade or so. Sometimes it sees as though talent is no longer a requirement to become a superstar, and often even those who do possess talent still rely on technology to make their music sound unique. So what happens when an unedited version of a song which was meant to be tweaked with Auto-Tune leaks? Unfortunately, you’re about to find out.

On July 2, an un-edited version of Britney Spears‘ hit song “Alien” was leaked to the public… and it ain’t pretty. Warning: what you are about to hear may not be suitable for human consumption.

Spears’ track producer William Orbit claims that the, um… “performance” was part of a warm-up set and was never intended as a final take. “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,” Orbit wrote in a statement picked up by the Huffington Post. “Warming up is essential if you’re a pro, as it is with a runner doing stretches, and it takes a while to do properly. I’ve heard all manner of sounds emitted during warm-ups. The point is that it is not supposed to be shared with millions of listeners.”

So what’s your take on this? Is this simply a leaked warm-up routine or was Spears just phoning it in and depending on Auto-Tune to make things sound legit?
