Christina Aguilera Is Stunning In New Promo Shot

Christina Aguilera is gearing up to release a brand new album by the end of this year, and if this gorgeous promo shot is any indication, we should expect something far more subtle than the hot mess that was 2010’s Bionic.

The black-and-white pic, photographed by Jake Bailey, is an extremely flattering shot of the pop star, and evokes a vintage, classic era, and thankfully does not feature Ms. Aguilera sporting a ball gag.

The Voice coach has described her new LP as “a very heartfelt, deep-rooted, and introspective record,” and word is that her boyfriend, PA-turned-songwriter Matthew Rutler, has penned some tracks for his lady. Her Max Martin-produced lead single is expected to drop sometime this month.
