MADONNA’S LANGVERWACHTE ALBUM MADAME X AANGEKONDIGD – official Dutch press release

Baarn – Madame X, het veertiende studioalbum van Madonna, ziet op vrijdag 14 juni het levenslicht. Madonna’s Portugese thuisbasis van de afgelopen zeven jaar heeft een sterke creatieve invloed op haar gehad en dat is terug te horen op Madame X. Het album werd zowel in Portugal als in Londen, New York en Los Angeles opgenomen. 

Lisbon is where my record was born,” Madonna says. “I found my tribe there and a magical world of incredible musicians that reinforced my belief that music across the world is truly all connected and is the soul of the universe.” 

Samen met producers Diplo, Mike Dean en Mirwais, de Franse muzikant en producer met wie de zangeres al meerdere albums opnam, werkte ze 18 maanden aan nieuw materiaal. In de vijftien nummers waarin die samenwerkingen resulteerden hoor je de inspiratie terug die ze putte uit de Latijn-Amerikaanse cultuur en andere invloeden van over de wereld.

Voor de eerste single van Madame X, het nummer ‘Medellín’, ging Madonna een samenwerking aan met de Colombiaanse zanger Maluma. De videoclip van het nummer laat nog even op zich wachten. De onthulling daarvan vindt plaats tijdens MTV presents Madonna Live & Exclusive op woensdag 24 april in Londen, waarbij Madonna aan Trevor Nelson vertelt over de achtergrond van het album. Maluma, die op dat moment in Miami zit, haakt via een satellietverbinding ook aan voor een gesprek over de totstandkoming van hun samenwerking.

Het album verschijnt op cd in een standaard uitgave en als dubbel cd luxe versie.

Madonna confirms full Madame X track listing including THREE surprise collabs (Daily Star)

The record, which is set to be M’s 14th studio recording, boasts 15 brand new songs, including a host of surprise collaborations.

The details appeared on Apple’s streaming service, Apple Music – less than 24 hours before her comeback single is slated to be released.

As well as her lead track Medellin which features Maluma, Madonna has teamed up with Quavo, Swae Lee and Anitta.

The album also features a six-minute track called Dark Control and a second Maluma collab, Bitch I’m Loca.

Ever one to keep close control of the direction of her music, Madonna is named in the writing credits on every track on the album.

Interestingly, Beautiful Game, a track Madge debuted live at last year’s MET Gala appears not to made the cut.

However, if you Shazam the performance the app cites the Dark Ballett, hinting at a name change for Beautiful Game.

Taking to Instagram, Beats 1 host Zane Lowe confirmed the superstar will personally release her single by joining him in the studio.

The former Radio 1 DJ wrote: “Tomorrow is rather hectic. 

“Madonna will be on the show with NEW @madonna X @maluma Medellín streaming for the first time at 9PT 12ET 17 GMT #WorldRecord.”

In a previous preview video posted on Madonna’s Instagram account earlier this week, the music icon teased the release.

Speaking in a gritty Steven Klein directed video, Madonna said: “I decided to call my record Madame X.

“Madame X is a secret agent traveling around the world, changing identities, fighting for freedom, bringing light to dark places.

“Madame X is a dancer, a prisoner, a student, a mother, a child, a teacher, a nun, a sinner, a saint, a w***e and a spy in the house of love, I’m Madame X.”

Taking to Instagram, Maluma gushed over teaming up with the Queen of Pop.

The Colombian singer said: “This seems incredible, I still can not believe it, but it is a reality!

“On April 17 we release our song called Medellin.”

While little more is known about Madame X, the album is thought to be influenced by Madonna’s new life in Lisbon, Portugal.

The international superstar moved to Europe in a bid to help her son, David Banda, carve out a successful football career.

Meanwhile, the Like A Prayer singer is all but confirmed to perform the new Medellin, as well as one of her classic hits, at next month’s Eurovision Song Contest.

The controversial starlet will reportedly jet out to Tel Aviv, Israel, with an 150-strong team.

She is thought to be netting a staggering $1million for the performance.
