You know the one, thinks you're beautiful no matter what they say, sweated until her clothes fell off, was a genie in a bottle with a sweet-talkin' sugar coated candyman...
Anyways, she's had the band Ladytron round to her gaff in LA to write some songs for her new album. Which is all good given the Goldfrapp-you-like stomp of her last single. Apparently Aguilera's place used to belong to Ozzy Osbourne, so maybe some rock vibes might slip in there.

They've a new single Tomorrow released... not tomorrow. 2nd March actually. 2009's hard grafting includes a confirmed Eastern European tour with Depeche Mode in May, a South American headlining tour and a co-headlining US tour with The Faint and an Australian show with Brian Eno. Phew! How do they have time to drop by for songwriting duties for major pop stars?!

Spooky video, huh? Reminds us of watching Ghost Hunting With Girls Aloud. Classic.
