Britney Spears, painter of leaves, dancer of light, announced today on Twitter that her much-anticipated new album will be out on August 26th.

Glory, available for pre-order tonight on Apple Music, is, Spears says, "the beginning of a new era."

Indeed, Spears has totally owned 2016 with a seeming fresh new lease on life, nailing her wildly popular Vegas performances, giving back to her community and religiously updating her MoMA-worthy instagram feed. Last month she sashayed back into our lives with very excellent summer banger "Make Me." She even found the time to cast motorized -retractible-awning-levels of shade on a fellow pop star.

Oh, the glory of it all.

You go get 'em, Britney.
