Madonna is currently 56years old and purely focused on her forthcoming 13th studio album rumored to be released in the fall
and hopefully not next year therefore we’ll be treated to a first single soon. So throughout various Instagram posts Madonna shows she is captain of the ship which was not all that apparent from her MDNA album (2012) according to rants by William Orbit, Madonna was pulled in various directions so didn’t have much time for the album.
Now what we know so far for ‘album 13’ is that lyrics leaked with clues of Miley Cyrus being featured on one of the tracks penned “Living for Love”. Miley was tagged then suddenly untagged but in the process Miley uploaded a photo at the same time wearing a Madonna t-shirt…a coincidence? You decide.
Avicii has produced various tracks with Madonna and was revealed as one of the first producers although Madonna has spoken nothing of him in the past several months. Through Instagram Diplo seems to be the lead producer on the album and from her latest Instagram comments; no one sleeps because the album is almost finished.
I would personally prefer to hear a killer Diplo album since his sound is not very mainstream compared to Avicii. An experimental track as the first single would get the radio to play her music…as long as it sounds brilliant! MoZella who wrote ‘Wrecking Ball’ is also on-board which means a powerful ballad could be in the works.
Let’s not forget this lady produced and wrote “Like a Prayer” so expectations will be high. Besides one might suggest this era may perhaps have Madonna’s biggest hit since “Hung Up” (2005) and “4 Minutes” (2008) which completely wrecked the airwaves. And from the list of leaked song titles like “Body Shop/Holy Water/Iconic” this is a unique track-list and may be a double album as there are too many tracks for one disk. The album seems like it will be taking musical risks once again A.K.A. Ray of Light and fingers crossed that no filler ends up as the second disk.
Good luck Madge!
