Madonna Is Ready To Record A New Album


Yes, yes … YES! Last week, Madonna’s manager Guy Oseary tweeted news that Madonna is anxious to get back into the recording studio in order to make a new album and today we hear from Live Nation Entertainment Chairman Irving Azoff (Madonna’s new boss) that she is, in fact, ready to make new music! As you may recall, Maddy signed a $100 million dollar recording contract with Live Nation so her next album would be the first under the terms of her new deal. Get ready, y’all … new Madonna music is on the way!!

It looks like Madonna is preparing to enter the studio to record a new album, the first under her $100 million multi-rights deal with Live Nation, which another lucrative tour seems likely as well. “They tell me Madonna is about to record, so there could be another Madonna cycle coming,” Live Nation Entertainment Chairman Irving Azoff told during an interview earlier this week. Asked if the Madonna album would come through Live Nation, Azoff responded, “Yes,” meaning Madonna’s album could be the first recorded content overseen by Live Nation … Azoff’s news was echoed by Madonna manager Guy Oseary this week via Twitter: “The update is that Madonna can’t wait to get into the recording studio. This will happen as soon as she finishes the movie she directed.” Live Nation signed a 10-year multi-rights deal with Madonna in 2007 said to be worth as much as $100 million, including her touring, merchandising and recording rights. Madonna left Warner Bros., her label home of 25 years, after the release of her 2008 album “Hard Candy.” Her subsequent Live Nation-produced “Sticky & Sweet” tour grossed $408 million worldwide, according to Billboard Boxscore, highest ever for a female artist … “Live Nation, prior to the merger, entered into some of these all-rights deals, so there are certain artists, Madonna being one of them, that there is a recorded music strategy,” Azoff saod. “Once she gets the album recorded, we’ll sit down with her and her manager Guy Oseary and figure out what’s best for the record. It has to start with the music.”

OMG, yes … FINALLY! It has been far too long since Madonna released new music … so the time has come for her to regain her throne … er, or at least for her to toss her hat back into the ring and show the young whipper-snappers what’s up. Oh, and speaking of young whipper-snappers … Maddy stepped out with her latest toy boy Barhim Zaibat in Berlin this week … so clearly Madonna & Child 2 are still going strong:

I can’t even get too excited for new Madonna music just yet. We are still at least a year away from any new album hittin’ the airwaves … but at least we know it’s on the way. I can’t waiiiiit!! Can you?

  • Mr. Gyllenhaal

    I can’t wait for her music but her face looks so jacked up in that picture. Stop pumping shit into your face. It doesn’t make you look younger just really odd.

    • Meredith

      @Mr. Gyllenhall–THANK YOU! FINALLY SOMEONE SAID IT! Hey, Madonna, you’re not 22 anymore. We still like you, but you know, it’s time for some age-appropriate photos/artwork, etc. Bubble gum, sheeesh!

    • linda

      jealous?? She is great and her music is actually about changing stuck up attitudes, hint hint: age appropriate..
      whatever that mean..

    • linda

      Never had an odd picture of yourself?
      Who said she put something in her face..she is just young looking, period.

  • Me

    I cannot wait to hear new music from her. She will show these girls whats what.

  • sparklecow

    Hmm this doesn’t have anything to do with her wanting to take on GaGa does it. haha Oh and stop dating little boys honey, it makes you look like a pedophile.

    • zephyr

      why oh why does it have to about one or the other? (Gaga or Madonna?) Madonna is first and foremost a recording artist and its been 3 yrs since her last album Hard Candy. I doubt Madonna would be jumping back in the studio just to spite Lady Gaga. And another thing why is it more acceptible for older male celebrities to date younger women but as soon as an older women starts dating younger men they get shitted on.

    • sparklecow

      When a 60 year old woman is dating men the age of her daughter there’s a problem. It doesn’t matter if it were a man or woman, its still disgusting.

    • Me

      Well said Zephyr! These ignorant comments are really getting old. Madonna has nothing to prove as far as her musical career goes, least of all to a beat biting carbon copy such as Lady Gaga. Madonna could wipe the floor with Gaga with all of her achievements.
      Furthermore, she’s 52, not 60. Her daughter is 14. He is 24. Therefore they are both adults, she is hardly a pedophile.

    • linda

      Totally agree!

    • candy perfume girl

      hey sparkleCOW, she’s not sixty and he’s not twelve. get it together before you start talking smack!

  • Where’s Britney?

    • Dave

      F**k Britney!!

  • Kells

    Cannot WAIT for new music from Madge! I love love love her… Ray of Light and Confessions are my favorites from her… oh wait, until I start listening to her stuff from the 1980’s!!! I just LOVE her.

  • Samantha

    I’d feel wierded out if I was her daughter. She keeps dressing and acting like like 1/3 her age. I just wonder when she is going to ‘chill out’ and be a mum. Her bf is not that much older than her daughter which would be confusing for her poor daughter (like rumor & ashton before he married her mother she had his poster’s up in her room hence a crush) AWKWARD

  • Scott

    I didn’t get the memo that we ALL had become perfect and had the right to judge everyone. Who cares who she dates, what she has for dinner, what car she drives. We all love her because she is an icon,a great artist & entertainer. Let’s just be happy she is giving us some new tunes ;-)

  • Paul

    I’m glad she is going back to the studio, I’m also happy she gave lady gaga her blessing for born this way. Trent you should have wrote about Lady Gaga on Jay Leno last night and how she talks about the Madonna controversy, with how vicious people were being to gaga over the single its great that Madonna didn’t have a problem with it.

    • sparklecow

      Madonna never gave her her “blessing”, one of her people sent her an email about the issue. Plus your taking GagGag’s word as truth, when the fact is she could very well be making it up. I doubt Madonna would be giving her blessing when she just uploaded her Express Yourself performance on Youtube, which implied GaGa is a theif.

    • Leah

      my god, you have commented on EVERY SINGLE Lady Gaga post & comment. You’re more obsessed with her than the little monsters!! Maybe spend a little less time worrying about Gaga & little more time trying not to be such a judgmental horrible little girl.

  • kerirulz

    omggggggggg this is the BEST NEWS EVER! with all the new gaga and brit brit stuff coming out, adding madonna to the mix would just be the icing on the cake! here’s hoping this new album sounds more “confessions” than “hard candy”!

  • krissy

    The more fun dance music, the better, right?

    I do wish Madonna would stop messing with her face. I just think that there is nothing wrong with being a healthy woman in her 50s, and I think she would still be her fabulous self with out pumping crap into her cheeks. She doesn’t need to look 20 to be awesome.

    • linda

      Who said she is pumping stuff into her face?? Did you do it?? never had an odd pic?? she just look great and she is not trying to look 20.

  • YAY to the power of infinity

  • Sabrina

    AWSOME!!!! I really can not wait for madonna to come out with a new album! It definitley has been tooo long since she has had new music! I Love Madonna with all my heart and I love her music and I am extremley excited to hear about new music from her being on its way! I definitley believe it will be as great of an album as ever. I know I will definitley be keeping a look out for it! Love Ya Madonna & really can’t wait for your new music to come out!!! :) <3

  • vVv

    yes yes yes! madonna, britney PLS show gaga where is her place! can’t wait for another hung up! :D

  • Well. It will be a October release… and i think she well be back to pick underground producers… there is rumors about simian mobile disco and Swedish house mafia on the production … so we shoud expect Dance

  • Claude-Charles

    Can’t wait for it, and please judging about the people she dates, that’s her problem not ours

  • neil T

    I, too, am excited for La Madonna to come up with some NEW music.
    After the absolute excrement that was her drivative & desperate last album, she must redeem herself. We beg you. In the manner of a ‘watershed’ moment a la __Ray of Light__ or __Erotica__, only quality music and lyric will rescue Her from this increasingly inexorable oblivion.

    Please, Madonna and myriad producer possibilities, offer your still myriad fans something majestic, memorable, melodious and at least minimally innovative.
    No more Ribbon Candy!

    • Jo

      That is exactly what I want. Gaga is an idiot! She has nothing original, I’m sorry. She is a Madonna wannabe & has knocked off all the legends from the 70’s & 80’s. Now Jlo has A.I save her career & used “Lambada” as the only part that makes that spoken tune O.T.F.

      No one writes lyrics AT ALL, never mind QUALITY lyrics, anymore. Ugh.

      I would love Madonna to come out with a Best Album Ever type of album. I know she can do it again. Madonna is the QUEEN OF POP. Period!

    • David B.

      Thank you. Jo. And Amen! Especially when these “so-called” singing stars of today can only make a “hit” with somebody else’s music. It seems , practically, anybody can be a singer these days. Good music pretty much died after the 90s. Fortunately, we still have a few out there that are still singing today from yesteryear! Lady CaCa is trying way too damn hard to follow in Madonna’s footsteps- especially with her constant, way-over-the-top shock tactics(even Madonna is probably embarrassed for her!!!). I think CaCa’s running out of ideas and her days(as a wannabee star)are numbered. I’ve always loved Madonna and can not wait for a new album from the Forever Queen of Pop that is Madonna!

  • Andrea

    Gaga lied its all over the news that Madonna did not send the email ……… Gaga lied

  • To all of those who criticize, you are talking about a legend. a woman who did it all on her own. She never waited for anyone’s approval to do anything and look where it got her!! THEE BIGGEST SELLING FEMALE ARTIST OF ALL TIME!!!! So please, leave her be. I mean let’s face it, she made songs that we all love. I love her and thank her. She is my inspiration and provided me with my life theme song : Express yourself.

    • David B.

      Excellently spoken. Thank you.

  • And please!!!! She sold over 300million cd’s!!!!!

  • Danny

    Let’s just hope that the break from hard candy has made her come to her scenses…
    It’s been a while since we have had a spectacular album from the queen.
    I think she should stop following trends and start setting them again what she has be renouned for doing.
    come on madonna where’s ya balls you seemed to have lost em somewhere these last few years

    all hail the queen

    • Lenka B

      I cant wait! Cant wait to see what you’re gonna come up with next. Loved the Celebration single. You rock and keep it coming pls and dont you be stopping anytime soon. Ive been following you for 25 years and my love for you will never fade. You have been my inspiration during all those years and helped me become who I am today. Love you very much Madge!

    • sven

      dear JEALOUS PEOPLE!

      do one album as good as hers….do somethingAT ALL…AND THEN TALK ABOUT HER!


  • Dave

    Love you, Madonna!!! I always have… Keep goin’ strong!

  • Naomi

    Kick Gaga’s butt, bring out an amazing album and show her who the real queen is!

    • Hayden

      I know that’s right!

  • Hayden

    I want to see her really CREATE something. ‘Confessions on a Dance Floor’ was a brilliant piece while ‘Hard Candy’ didn’t have as much of Madonna’s soul in it, at least in my opinion. ‘Ray of Light’ was also an amazing work. I’m happy with dance, but I want something real, something tangible, something epic if you will (‘Confessions’ was epic to me). She is such an inspirational artist and I want her to really push what she can do! Focus less on collaboration and more on the significance of the music (it makes the people come together).

    Love you, Madonna!

  • Madonnafan

    am i the only one who thought that American Life was the best everrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr? It didnt top t he charts but i thought it shouldve!

    • David B.

      No. You’re not the only one. I thought this was a really great record- very personal. It only got the treatment it did because certain people don’t understand Madonna’s artistic, visionary style in her lyrics and on video( I’m sure you remember her original video for American Life). Madonna’s still going strong coming up on 30 years very soon!!! How many singers from 1983 can claim what Madonna has accomplished?

  • Ron

    I love Lady Gaga but all I can say is once the Queen of Pop puts out the new alblum, it will be like Lady who?

    • David B.

      I don’t really care that much for Lady Gaga(her first album was awesome, though) but I just
      LOVE the way you put this, Ron! I love it!!

  • Connie McBride

    There is no other than Madonna, she is the Artist of the Past, Present and the Future. She tops Gaga, Britany and all others. They only try to copy. There will never be anybody to top Madonna. She rocks!!!! So glad there is a new album on it’s way. She is the SheMaster of ladyrock. Go Madonna.
