Then it was announced through the official press release that the album would be named Battlefield , after the first single, because it was central to the themes and other recordings for the album.
Speaking of the lead song, Sparks said. Sparks spoke to Billboard magazine about how the recording process was much different to that of her previous album. Her debut had been recorded in approximately 20 days due to the huge appetite that fans had for her music. On May 18, it was revealed so far Sparks had recorded 30 songs for the album but would select songs that fit well with the first single "Battlefield" since that was now also the name for the album. She also revealed that although the album had at that time produced no duets she was hopeful to collaborate with Leona Lewis for a powerful ballad.
When asked who else she would like to collaborate with she said Fergie , Justin Timberlake , and Alicia Keys. None of these collaborations materialized although Sparks did confirm in an interview that she had made a pact to record a duet with Lewis for her future album as she believes the duo could be the next " Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey ". The reason cited for no duets on this album was a lack of time and tight deadlines.
Originally the album was intended to feature one guest in the form of T-Pain who had produced and appeared on the song "Watch You Go" with his signature vocoder singing autotune , but for unspecified reasons this version of the song was omitted and replaced with a solo version featuring just Spark's vocals. All together between 30 and 40 songs had been short-listed for inclusion in the album, from which the final track list was selected and mastered.
The album was first announced to be released on July 14, in America by Sparks herself through Twitter and by Amazon. On May 10, Sparks went ahead with a planned photo shoot for the album's cover and future singles.
Sparks released a two disc deluxe edition featuring two bonus tracks at the same time as the standard edition,  following in the footsteps of fellow label-mates Ciara and Britney Spears. In international markets, " Tattoo " and " One Step at a Time " from her debut album were included as bonus tracks to help promote the album; both songs were successful in their own rights, reaching top 20 in Japan, the UK and Australia with no promotion.
On March 15, it was announced that Sparks was going on her first headlining tour, the Battlefield Tour in support of her second studio album of the same name. The tour ended on July 18, in Philadelphia , Pennsylvania. The album debuted at number 7 on the US Billboard , selling 48, copies in its first week.
