As announced last week, Christina Aguilera's first single from new album Bionic, Not Myself Tonight, was premiered on her official website earlier this evening. Although much of the Blogosphere is raving about the track, I'm still on-the-fence with this Polow De Don-produced single. It is essentially an electro-refreshing of her 2002 single Dirrty with some added Britney/Janet come-hitherness.
Aguilera definitely sounds much more in her element here though than on recent efforts like Keeps Gettin' Better and Dynamite, allowing her vocals to soar fully. And we can thank God she got her wartime era itch scratched on her 2006 studio album Back to Basics, as we can welcome her back into the realm of pop relevance once again.
Surely this is just a teaser and I'm expecting her to pull out the big guns on forthcoming singles. The single will be on iTunes Tuesday, April 13, 2010 and Bionic will be in stores June 8, 2010.
