    Default Background on the "when I found you" acoustic?

    Does anyone know what's the background on the acoustic version for "When I found you"? Was it a demo, was it an early version of the song that they later "improved" upon? I think it's perfect and even better than the official release. Anyone knows what was this version recorded for?

    i think it's a demo, tho i'm not 100% sure. imo the only thing that's better about it is are the vocals. the production on the final thing is gorgeous IMO (esp. the daft punk-y sound at the beginning, i'm sure you know what i mean lol) and i wouldn't want this instrumental instead lol the vocals though... definitely! but that's almost always the case. britney sounds way better when her vocals aren't processed/less processed.

    When it leaked it was labeled as a Demo, I think it leaked along other Britney era tracks.

    Wasn't it leaked by that guy Burim, who leaked several Lady Gaga songs as well? I'm not 100% sure, but I think he leaked it and then he said he had several other Britney songs that he was willing to sell, but nothing came out of it.

    I honestly think I prefer this version over the final one. Her vocals are gorgeous, and I've always found the album version to be over-produced.

    This version definitely sounds unfinished (vocals dominate the instruments, crude demo-like production) but I prefer the overall mellow vibe of it over the original track. Would've been nice if they polished it up a little (not the vocals though) and released it as a B-side to one of her singles at he time. It really is precious.

    I first heard it many years ago, but forgot all about it then re-discovered it fairly recently. The YouTube video is uploaded from 2009 btw.

    the first clip leaked August 2009.
    the full demo then leaked almost two months later.


    the off topic drama going on in either of those threads is gold
