Fresh off a hot streak of not being a huge disaster for a few weeks, Britney’s decided to release her upcoming album, Circus. We might have gone with Frappe, Blackhole, or I Had the Most Unbeweavable Year, but Circus really is quite apt. It’ll come out on Britney’s 27th birthday, December 2, which seems a little early, as her last effort dropped only last fall. Blackout sold almost 900K copies, nowhere near the haul of Brit’s previous megamillion sellers. (Ugh, I hate when horrible people like me point that out. I’m always like — in the voice of Ms. J — “Girllllll, I’ll TAKE the toy car load of royalty money from one of those “less successful” albums if you don’t want it! Betch.)

Anyway, give us your fall music forecast in the poll below!
