Michelle Williams will be lending her voice to the audiobook version of Britney Spears’ memoir, The Woman in Me.
In an exclusive statement to People, it was confirmed the Oscar nominee is narrating a large portion of the book whilst the pop icon will be recording the introduction.
“This book has been a labour of love and all the emotions that come with it. 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,” Britney’s statement reads.
She adds, “I am so grateful to the amazing Michelle Williams for reading the rest of it.”
Michelle also shared a short statement of support with People: “I stand with Britney.”
The highly anticipated memoir will be released on October 24.
Publisher Gallery Books (an imprint of Simon & Schuster) previously said the book is a “brave and astonishingly moving story about freedom, fame, motherhood, survival, faith, and hope.”

“In June 2021, the whole world was listening as Britney Spears spoke in open court. The impact of sharing her voice – her truth – was undeniable, and it changed the course of her life and the live of countless others. The Woman in Me reveals for the first time her incredible journey – and the strength at the core of one of the greatest performers in pop music history,” a message on the official page for Britney’s memoir reads.
“Written with remarkable candour and humour, Spears’ groundbreaking book illuminates the enduring power of music and love – and the importance of a woman telling her own story, on her own terms, at last.”
The book is being released almost 2 years after Britney was freed from a 13-year conservatorship.
