The dance duo were photographed with the pop singer backstage at their Governors Ball festival appearance in New York

Disclosure have confirmed that they are not producing Madonna’s forthcoming new album.

Rumours began that the British dance duo were working with the pop star after she posted a picture of her with them at the Governors Ball festival in New York in June.

However, Disclosure have confirmed that this isn’t the case. “She came to our gig at Governors Ball,” Howard Lawrence told Billboard, “and within a few hours, there were articles being written about how we were producing her album – and we had met her that day. How could we even have done that?”

According to the magazine, the duo haven’t ruled out a potential future collaboration with the singer though.

Madonna is currently working on her 13th studio album with Major Lazer man Diplo. She has also recorded with Avicii and British pop star Natalia Kills. Madonna’s last album, ‘MDNA’, was released in 2012.
