I’m not a huge Madonna fan (ok, I’m not a fan of hers at all) BUT the lady is a big part of the musical landscape so I feel compelled to talk about something that popped up in the news lately.
MadonnaTribe reported this week that the Material One has recorded nine songs so far for the disc, including the lead single, “Give Me All Your Love,” which will feature Nicki Minaj and M.I.A.
The album, which she is reportedly recording with old pal William Orbit (Ray of Light) as well as dance veterans Martin Solveg and Benny Benassi, is slated for release early next year and unconfirmed rumors continue to bubble up that Madonna will play the new single when she performs at halftime at next year’s Super Bowl on February 5.
Orbit is notorious for keeping things close to the vest, but he did recently tweet a tantalizing message that appeared to confirm the Super Bowl appearance:
“I hesitate to make a comment about anything musical,” he wrote. “Ya’ll might think is a cryptic tease. But will say: \o/\o/\o/\o/\o/\o/\o/.”
The obvious cheerleader reference has been taken by Madonnaphiles to either be a confirmation of the appearance at the big game or a hint that the gig will feature some cheerleaders spelling out the singer’s name in the stadium while she plays her new song.
Madge may also be enlisting the help of up-and-comers NERVO for her new album.
