Madonna is making a comeback.
After weeks of teasing on social media, the legendary pop superstar has surprised fans with a mysterious new trailer for her upcoming 14th studio album, which we now know will be called Madame X, and it’s already iconic.
“Madame X is a secret agent, travelling around the world, changing identities, fighting for freedom, bringing light to dark places,” Madonna says in the video, which sees her serve a series of lewks in black and blonde hair.
“Madame X is a dancer, a professor, a head of state, a housekeeper, an equestrian, a prisoner, a student, a mother, a child, a teacher, a nun, a singer, a saint, a whore, and a spy in the house of love.”
As well as announcing the album title, the trailer also features a snippet of a new song. There’s no release date for the record as of yet.
Speaking to Vogue Italia last year, Madonna explained how living in Lisbon, Portugal has influenced her new music.
“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,” he said.
“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 continued: “It’s also such a nice antidote to what’s going on in the 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.”
Following rumours that the legendary pop superstar would be making an appearance at Eurovision Song Contest, taking place in Israel this year, the European Broadcasting Union has confirmed the exciting news.
Madonna will reportedly perform a “popular hit” as well as a new track, which Haaretz says has been a point of contention with the contest’s producers as the new song she plans to debut features a political message.
