Queen of Rock
New album rumours from Victoria Newton’s column on The Sun today.
“Madonna is re-inventing herself again – this time as the Queen of Rock.
The undisputed pop goddess has nearly finished her next album and it will have a heavy guitar sound.”
According to Victoria Newton, who has got her hands on a blueprint of the new material, the poppy, dance feel of American Life has gone in favour of a more edgy theme and Madonna is playing most of the big guitar riffs herself in the album, scheduled for an end-of-year release.
The rise of British guitar rock bands has inspired the Queen of Pop and she has become fan of artists such as Franz Ferdinand and The Darkness, making her move in the direction of real sounds, like a real band.
“Madonna always keeps in touch with what is popular in the charts and has been really into the guitar-based rock bands of 2004. The new album is taking shape as one of her best ever,” the Bizarre columnist’s source reveals.
Victoria Newton also reports about the several big name producers she has enlisted to help her in the job. Together with Mirwais and main producer Stuart Price , she got in touch with Swedish duo Bloodshy & Avant and asked to write a song.
Monte Pittman, Madonna’s tour guitarist and teacher, has co-written a track called “I Love New York” and the album should include her cover of John Lennon’s Imagine, which she premiered during last summer’s tour.
