The star spoke with PEOPLE to share the news about how she is lending her voice to the book.
“This book has been a labor of love and all the emotions that come with it,” Spears says in a statement shared with PEOPLE. “Reliving everything has been exciting, heart-wrenching, and emotional, to say the least. For those reasons, I will only be reading a small part of my audiobook.”
Spears adds, “I am so grateful to the amazing Michelle Williams for reading the rest of it.”
“I stand with Britney,” Williams says in a statement of her support for the Grammy-winning singer.
This is the Fabelman’s first audiobook as well.
Promising to reveal “for the first time her incredible journey (and) strength at the core of one of the greatest performers in pop music history,” according to a press release from Gallery Books, the “Toxic” singer’s memoir “illuminates the enduring power of music and love — and the importance of a woman telling her own story, on her own terms.”
The audiobook will be published along with other editions of the book now available for pre-order on October 24.
According to TMZ, Britney found it too painful to record several chapters of the book. Those chapters included dealing with her family members whom she is currently estranged from.
According to the outlet, the team attempted to get Reese Witherspoon to record the novel, but the scheduling did not work out.
Britney says she is more than grateful for Michelle to be doing the heavy lifting on the audio book.
