Pop icon Madonna has confirmed a new album!
The singer announced her long-awaited return to pop music by posting an Instagram video confirming that Madame X is the name of her new album.
The clip shows Madonna as Madame X, wearing elaborate costumes and using a typewriter. She describes Madame X as “a secret agent travelling around the world, changing identity, fighting for freedom, and bringing light to dark places.”
In the video, a song featuring the lyrics, “The thing that hurts the most was that I wasn’t lost,” can be heard.
The 60-year-old revealed in an interview in 2018 that her new music was inspired by Portugal, where she lived throughout the process of its creation.
“I’ve just met lots of really amazing musicians, and I’ve ended up working with a lot of these musicians on my new record, so Lisbon has influenced my music and my work. How could it not? I don’t see how I could have gone through that year without being informed by all this input of culture,” she said.
“It’s also such a nice antidote to what’s going on in music business now where everything’s so formulaic, and every song has 20 guest artists on it, and everyone sounds the same. Something’s gotta give.”
She teased new music during her performance at the 2018 Met Gala. She sang an unreleased tune allegedly titled Beautiful Game.
Madonna’s forthcoming studio set will mark her first full-length LP since the release of her album Rebel Heart in 2015.
