Ever wondered what Britney Spears' handwriting looks like?

Well, the singer just posted a hand-written letter to her fans, thanking them for their years of support and teasing her upcoming album, "Britney Jean."

The 31-year-old pop star also revealed the cover art for the new album -- a black and white photo of a topless Spears with the album title written in neon lights. Spears looks stunning in the photo.

She also announced that her next single, a followup to "Work Bitch" called "Perfume," will drop November 5.

O.K. ... so, the letter.

Yeah, her handwriting is kind of small and we have a sneaking suspicion she had some help from a PR team writing it, but it's still a nice personal touch to promote her new work.

In case you can't read it, here's the full text:

I haven't sat down to write you guys in SUCH a long time. Long overdue! We're all so used to getting our thoughts out in 140 characters, but sometimes its nice to take time to sit down and write something a little longer and more personal. I am putting the finishing touches on my new album, "Britney Jean" over the next few days and I am so excited for you to hear it. I poured my heart and soul into this album and it's been an incredible journey. I've learned a lot about myself, and as I am finishing, I am reminded of the incredible foundation that has supported me for the last 15 years. Thank you all for continuing to follow me on this journey and for allowing me to do what I love to do. I can’t believe this is my eighth studio album and I know I keep telling you that it is my most personal record yet, but its true and I’m really proud of that. 

I have been through a lot in the past few years and it has really inspired me to dig deeper and write songs that I think everyone can relate to. Working with people like Sia, William Orbit, and of course Will.i.am has been an amazing experience. They have listened to all of my ideas and helped me bring them to life. There are a lot of really fun, upbeat dance songs, but it was important to me that I show my strength, and my attitude, and my vulnerability. Of course, I also have some surprises for you guys ;)

I want to show you the different sides of Britney Spears. I am a performer. I am a Mom. I am funny. I am your friend! I am Britney Jean.

We're loving that last line and can't wait to hear the entire album! Are you planning to see Spears in concert at Planet Hollywood when her residency kicks off in December? Sound off below!
