Rumours of a Madonna 2012 world tour have been ‘faked’ according to her publicist.

A Live Nation press release was recently posted on Madonna fansite, listing tour dates for a four continent tour that was allegedly starting in March next year in Auckland, New Zealand.

However, Liz Rosenberg, Madonna’s publicist has said that both the dates and press release are ‘fake’. Rosenberg however has said that in regards to Madonna appearing at the Super Bowl XLVI Halftime Show in February, "there is nothing to confirm or deny at this time."

Meanwhile, Madonna has confirmed she will release her new album next spring. The singer said she has started work on the record with producer William Orbit - pictured right - and is expected to be busy in her New York studio until the end of the year.

She also confirmed that the first single for the record is due out in February or March.

The album, which is the follow-up to 2008's 'Hard Candy', will be her first in a deal to release music in partnership with concert promoter Live Nation.
