Britney’s Producer Defends Auto-Tune Free Version of “Alien”

LAS VEGAS, NV - DECEMBER 03: Singer Britney Spears waves at a welcome ceremony as she celebrates the release of her new album 'Britney Jean' and prepares for her two-year residency at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on December 3, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Spears' show 'Britney: Piece of Me' will debut at the resort on December 27, 2013.
The internet’s been buzzing about the auto-tune free version of Britney Spears’ “Alien,” and the track’s producer has come to the pop star’s defense in a recent Facebook post.

William Orbit’s post stated, “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 [sic] in order to get warmed up.” 

Orbit would continue with, “A generous singer will put something down the mic to help the engineer get their systems warmed up and at the right level, maybe whilst having a cup of herb tea and checking through lyrics before the session really kicks off. It’s not expected to be a ‘take.’”

He concluded that whoever leaked the audio did it “in a spirit of unkindness” and regardless of the leak, Britney is “beyond stellar!” and is “magnificent!”
