    Xtina is back! Pop diva Christina Aguilera is putting down the breast pumps and diapers and getting back to work, so to speak. She'll probably be relying a bit more on her nanny nowadays, since she announced yesterday that her new album, Bionic, will be released on June 8. Bionic is Christina's first album since 2006's Back to Basics and is her fourth studio effort over all.

    The first single, "Not Myself Tonight," will premiere on Aguilera's official website, http://www.christinaaguilera.com/ on March 30. A preview of the song will happen today, so bookmark, point and click! The album artwork has also been revealed, featuring the visage of a half-human, half-cyborg Aguilera, complete with her signature platinum blonde locks and juicy red lips. She's a younger, tart-ier Gwen Stefani, yo!

    The album was recorded in the songbird's home studio and according to Aguilera in a statement, it features electronic elements paired with the organic, playful subjects living alongside introspective ones. There probably won't be an exhumation of those assless leather chaps, though.

    Aguilera partnered with Sia, Le Tigre, Hill & Switch and Ladytron on the record, while Linda Perry, who has penned tunes for Pink and Courtney Love in the past, authored some songs on the record. Perry also wrote Aguilera's biggest hit, 2002's smash "Beautiful" so this previously successful collaboration is expected to yield similar results.

    In addition to being a rather new mom, Aguilera will also star in Burlesque alongside Cher. Wow, what a diva fest that sounds like! There had to be cat fights on that set. The film is scheduled to be released in fall of this year.

    Are you excited for Xtina's return? Are you digging her sexy new look?
