Madonna has released her new single ‘Medellin’ and shared details of her upcoming album, ‘Madame X’. Stream the song and see the album tracklist below.
This week saw the icon confirm details of ‘Madame X‘ – her first album in four years and the follow-up to ‘Rebel Heart’. She later took to social media to confirm that the first single would arrive today (April 17).
Now, the pop star has unveiled ‘Medellin’ – which premiered on Beats 1 – along with its tracklist. ‘Madame X’ will be released on June 14 and features tracks such as ‘Dark Ballet’, ‘God Control’, ‘Killers Who Are Partying’, and ‘Crazy’.
According to a press release, ‘Madame X’ was inspired creatively by Madonna residing in Portugal over the past several years. It states that the 15-track record is made up of songs “that celebrate Madonna’s career-long affair with Latin music and culture as well as other global influences.”
“Lisbon is where my record was born,” Madonna says. “I found my tribe there and a magical world of incredible musicians that reinforced my belief that music across the world is truly all connected and is the soul of the universe.”
The official video for ‘Medellin’ will be premiered as part of the MTV Presents Madonna Live special, set to air on April 24. Madonna will join British DJ Trevor Nelson live from London for a conversation about the influences and creative forces behind the LP. Fans will be able to tune in at 9pm (BST).
