Madonna’s in the studio with Natalia Kills and Martin Kierszenbaum.
The Queen of Pop shared an image on Instagram late in the evening on Wednesday (April 9) with the caption “Working the midnight shift with Natalia Kills. 2 girls on a couch… don’t it taste like Holy Water? #artforfreedom #rebelheart #revolutionoflove”
In the photo, Madonna is sitting with pop singer/songwriter Kills, in front of two microphones. In the foreground is Martin Kierszenbaum, the founder and chairman of Cherrytree Records (Kills’ label) and senior executive of A&R for Interscope Records.
Among his many credits, Kierszenbaum A&R’d Lady Gaga’s debut album “The Fame,” and co-wrote and produced four of the songs on the set. He also did A&R for Gaga’s “The Fame Monster” EP.
Madonna’s next studio album will be released on Interscope Records.
Her collaboration with Kills comes shortly after Madonna confirmed that she had worked with DJ/producer Avicii in March. On March 12, she posted a photo of her and the EDM superstar to Instagram, saying: “The End of a long week with Viking Leader AKA DJ Virgo AKA Avicii! So many great songs! #icantwait #revolution”
Back in February, Madonna said that “plans” were “in the works already” for a new album. That followed a comment by her manager, Guy Oseary, in January, where he said that Madonna was “eager to get started” on her next album.
Madonna’s forthcoming set will be the follow-up to 2012’s “MDNA.” It debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart and has sold 536,000 copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan.
