Madonna is working on new versions of classic material, girl.
In celebration of her 63rd birthday and upcoming 40th year as a recording artist, the pop icon announced Monday that a new deal with Warner Music Group will entail the release of “an extensive, multi-year series of catalog releases that will revisit the groundbreaking music that made her an international icon” for the first time, including “expansive deluxe editions” of her classic albums as well as “unique releases for special events” — all of which will be personally curated by Madonna.
The partnership will start rolling out curated releases in 2022 and see Warner representing all of Madonna’s releases by the end of 2025, including her last trio of albums, MDNA, Rebel Heart, and Madame X, which were ultimately distributed through Interscope following the singer’s decades-long relationship with Warner that began with the release of her first single, “Everybody,” under the label’s Sire banner in 1982.
Warner’s new deal encompasses 17 studio albums (including smashes like Like a Virgin, True Blue, Like a Prayer, Ray of Light, Music, and more), plus hit singles (“Vogue,” “Into the Groove,” and “Express Yourself,” among others), soundtrack recordings, live albums, and other compilations.
