Madonna has announced her long-awaited new album, ‘Madame X’.
Though a release-date is yet to be confirmed, the iconic singer shared a teaser of new music in an accompanying announcement video which you can see below.
The stylized clip, which sees Madonna take on elaborate costumes under her new persona, hears the describe Madame X as “a secret agent travelling around the world, changing identity, fighting for freedom, and bringing light to dark places”. At the point of going to press, the backdrop song cannot be identified by Shazam.
In 2018, Madonna revealed her new music was inspired by her time living in Portugal – “I’ve just met lots of really amazing musicians, and I’ve ended up working with a lot of these musicians on my new record, so Lisbon has influenced my music and my work” she told Vogue Italia, adding “How could it not? I don’t see how I could have gone through that year without being informed by all this input of culture…. It’s also such a nice antidote to what’s going on in the music business now where everything’s so formulaic, and every song has 20 guest artists on it, and everyone sounds the same. Something’s gotta give.”
**UPDATE: Madonna has now revealed the first ‘Madame X’ single will be titled ‘Medellin’, and will be released on 17th April**.
