It was released on May 10, 2004, by Jive Records, as the third single from the album. After Spears ended her relationship with pop singer Justin Timberlake in 2002, she made friends with her backing vocalist Annet Artani. They started writing songs together at Spears’s house in Los Angeles, and then traveled to Lombardy, Italy, where “Everytime” was written.
Spears composed the music on her piano, and she developed the lyrics with Artani.

Spears has neither confirmed nor denied these allegations.Everytime” is considered a pop ballad with breathy vocals. Its lyrics are a plea for forgiveness for inadvertently hurting a former lover. The song received generally positive reviews, with critics complimenting its haunting lyrics and the organic feel of the song in comparison with most of the tracks on its host album.

“Everytime” has been covered by artists such as Glen Hansard and Kelly Clarkson, and has been used in the film Spring Breakers (2013).Inspired by the cinematography of Leaving Las Vegas, the music video for “Everytime” portrays Spears as a star hounded by paparazzi, who drowns in her bathtub when she starts bleeding from a wound in her head. In the hospital, doctors fail to resuscitate her while a child is born in the next room, implying she has been reincarnated. The original treatment would have had Spears killing herself from a drug overdose, but the plot was removed after it received criticism by organizations such as Kidscape, who perceived it as a glamorization of suicide. Critics noted the video for its religious references to The Passion of the Christ, Kaballah and stigmata, and for predicting Spears’s future struggles with fame.
