Britney Spears fans probably weren't expecting to hear any new music from their pop diva anytime soon, given that she just released 'Femme Fatale' in March. But a new Britney ballad surfaced online today called 'Everyday.'

Some fans are wondering if the track was intended for 'Femme Fatale,' but that seems unlikely, since 'Everyday' doesn't sound like anything from that up-tempo dance album. The song is built around lush strings, piano, and Spears' natural voice, and it's rightfully earning comparisons to Christina Aguilera's 'Beautiful.'

Spears sings, "Footsteps in the rain, memories wash away / Beyond the headlight glare, it's kind of dark out there / And everywhere I've been, it's hard to find a friend / I've got no alibis for the state I'm in."

She continues by singing about getting through hard times with the help of a loved one: "Everyday, the sun comes up again / A little hope begins, and it starts with you cause you get me through it / And everyday, I'm closer to the shore / I smile a little more, and because of your faith I get closer everyday."

Brit sounds good on the song, but it's so similar to Xtina's hit that we can't give her any points for originality. If 'Everyday' was truly intended for 'Femme Fatale,' Spears showed great judgment by not allowing it to make the final cut.
