Christina Aguilera Recording with Le Tigre
The "Dirrty" pop star experiments with different sounds on her September release.
Christina Aguilera sure has come a long way from her "Genie in a Bottle" days. For her upcoming September album, Light & Darkness, she recorded

The all female lesbian 3-piece are best known for their underground hit "TKO". The groups last album was in 2004, and they've been on an official
break since 2007 only now reuniting to work with Aguilera.
Also featured on her self-described "futuristic electro" album will be Tricky Stewart, Sia, Linda Perry, Claude Kelly, Goldfrapp, and Ladytron.
