Britney Spears is feeling kinda blue these days ... but the new song she released for The Smurfs 2 is totally not. Take a listen to the upbeat track below!

The singer's whimsical vocals are layered atop upbeat electro beats as a rollicking guitar strums in and out. Vintage Britney ... with a Smurfs twist!

The sequel and its higher expectations arrive in theaters on July 31.
