Get into Madge’s groove
When the queen of pop isn’t busy dressing like a Sunday school teacher and plugging her latest kid’s book, Madonna is heading back to her dance roots. Never one to follow fashion, Mad’s has decided to team-up with some top producers for her forthcoming album, rumoured to be out late November.
“It’s all dance music,” she recently blabbed. “No ballads, no slow songs.” Which is a shame, because we know there’s another This Used To Be My Playground in there, just waiting to get out.
After surprising her critics in 1998 by working with William Orbit and releasing the excellent Ray of Light, Madge went all semi-dancey on us and brought French producer Mirwais Ahmadzai onboard for both Music and American Life. Stuart Price (a.k.a. Jacques Lu Cont), her musical director on the Reinvention Tour, who co-wrote X-Static Process on American Life is also said to be involved.
While Swedish producer-songwriters known as Bloodshy & Avant (Christian “Bloodshy” Karlsson and Pontus “Avant” Winnberg), who wrote and produced Britney’s Toxic hit are also lending a hand.
Expect the unexpected.
