Full song now available to hear after initial 40-second snippet leak
Madonna‘s latest song ‘Rebel Heart’ has leaked online.
An unauthorised 40-second preview of the track was first posted yesterday (November 28), though it now appears that a more completed version has leaked. Click below to listen.
The source of the leak seems to have puzzled Madonna and her team. As reported by Billboard, the singer’s manager Guy Oseary yesterday took to Twitter to seek help in finding the culprit. “I would be grateful to any Madonna fans that can assist us in finding those responsible for the leak. We appreciate your help,” he posted.
Whether or not the leaked version is the completed, final edit of the song – assumed to be titled ‘Rebel Heart’ as the phrase is a prominent lyric and has been used by Madonna as a hashtag on Instagram for months – is not yet clear. The 56-year-old is currently working on a follow up to her 2012 album ‘MDMA’, with Alicia Keys, Diplo, Ariel Pink and Swedish DJ Avicii among her recent collaborators.
“Interscope are calling me to help write Madonna’s record,” said Pink last month. “They need something edgy. They need songwriting. She can’t just have her Avicii, her producers or whatever, come up with a new techno jam for her to gyrate to and pretend that she’s 20 years old. They actually need songs. I’m partly responsible for that return-to-values thing.”
