Re-Inventing Dance Music for a New Generation
”Confessions On A Dance Floor”: New Madonna Album Re-Invents Dance Music for a New Generation
Here’s an excerpt of today’s press release from Warner Bros. Records about Madonna’s upcoming album, announcing the Queen of Pop visiting MTV’s TRL on October 17 for the debut of her new single.
On her highly anticipated new Warner Bros. Records release, “Confessions On A Dance Floor,” Madonna brilliantly re-invents dance music for our time. A stunning creative leap into the dazzling dimension of “future disco“, these dozen new originals simultaneously capture the spontaneous thrill of the iconic superstar’s
Set to arrive in stores November 15, and featuring the debut single “Hung Up,” scheduled for release on October 17, “Confessions On A Dance Floor” once again establishes Madonna’s preeminent place on the
international club scene.
It’s a mesmerizing sound that evokes and
embellishes all the excitement, energy and innovation that first set her apart as a dance music pioneer over two decades ago.
While Madonna’s recent music has explored her thoughts and feelings on everything from spirituality to politics, “Confessions On A Dance Floor” is, in the artist’s own words, “about having a good time straight through and non-stop. I want people to jump out of their seats.”
A genuine global superstar, packing stadiums worldwide with her astonishing stage spectacles, Madonna, a multi-Grammy winner, has made
music history with international sales of over 200 million albums. Her enormous influence has spanned 33 number one dance hits, 5 chart
topping albums and 46 Top 40 singles and 20 MTV Video Music Awards.
Recorded earlier this year in London, “Confessions On A Dance Floor” was
primarily co-produced and co-written by Madonna and Stuart Price, one of the UK’s most electrifying young DJs and remix wizards, who initially forged a creative partnership with Madonna as her Musical Director on both the 2001
“Drowned World” and 2004’s “Re-Invention” tours.
“This is music that just comes naturally to her,” explains Price, whose home studio served as the setting for the freewheeling writing and recording sessions. “The songs flowed very quickly. Madonna was interested in capturing the moment because, when all is said and done, it’s that instinctive joy of rhythm and movement that comes across best on the dance floor.”
Also collaborating on Madonna’s first new release in over two years is Mirwais Ahmadzai and the Grammy-winning duo of Bloodshy and Avant, as well as Anders Bagge and Peer Astrom of the Murlyn Music Collective and Joe Henry, whose previous Madonna credits include “Don’t Tell Me.”
“Confessions On A Dance Floor” selections includethe above-mentioned “Hung Up,” which includes a sample of Abba’s classic “Gimme Gimme,” as well as dance-themed cuts “Get Together,” “Sorry,” “Future Lovers,” “I Love New York,” “Let It Will Be,” “Forbidden Love,” “Jump,” “How High,”
“Isaac,” “Push” and “Like It Or Not.” The entire CD is seamlessly segued in a classic dance club format.
Madonna‘s first scheduled TV appearance will be on October 17 when she
will pay a visit to MTV’s TRL studio, where she will introduce her new single for the first time.
MTV, as part of a multi-faceted agreement with the artist, is also scheduled to air Madonna’s new documentary “I’m Going To Tell You A
Secret” on October 21 with subsequent airings on the VH-1 and Logo Networks.
“Secret” tells the story of the artist’s journey on and offstage during her recent “Re-Invention” Tour showing an artist at the peek of her creative powers balanceing the joys of work, family, friends and her spiritual journey.
