Britney Spears has released the third single "Clumsy," from her forthcoming album Glory. The synth-laden track is built around a phrase Spears has sung for over a decade ("oops!") paired with a futuristic club beat.

In the song, Spears fumbles through the early throes of love. "Call me a fool/ Call me insane/ But don't call it a thing," she coos in her unmistakable nasal come-on tone. The song marks a rhythmic, almost swing-inspired turn for Spears, whose sound has evolved from melodic pop to EDM over the past five years. 

"Clumsy" is available to download on iTunes and stream on Spotify. The track follows previously released Glory singles "Private Show" and "Make Me," which features Bay Area rapper G-Eazy. Glory is set to arrive on August 26th and follows Spears' 2013 album, Britney Jean.
