Britney Spears is perhaps best known for her iconic singles, including “… Baby One More Time,” “Toxic,” and “Gimme More.” But beneath the landmarks of her discography lie many hidden bonus tracks that show the pop icon at her most experimental, emotional, upbeat, goofy, or all of the above. The adorably catchy “Deep In My Heart,” Lady Gaga co-written “Quicksand,” and recent bizarro banger “If I’m Dancing” are just some of the unearthed treasures. Today, the inimitable Miss Spears has generously given us the latest addition to her bonus track collection: “Mood Ring.”

The DJ Mustard-helmed track, released exclusively on the Japanese edition of her new album Glory, fits perfectly with the moody, atmospheric leanings of the (fantastic) record. It presents Britney at her most confident and vulnerable, as she sings atop Mustard’s simmering production. “Look in the mirror, who do I see? Who do I wanna be today?” she croons before asserting herself seductively: “Nothing on my body but this mood ring.” The stuttering breakdowns and her omnipresent vocals solidify this track as another Britney scorcher, one that fans can keep as a hidden treasure.

Like most of Glory, “Mood Ring” serves to prove that Godney is once again on top of her game, having found her place in today’s music landscape by staying true to her quirky and sensual tendencies. Listen to the track below.
