A representative for Madonna has said that the pop star's
new album is likely to be released in 2015.
The claim was made in Billboard. Madonna's manager Guy Oseary went on to say: "She's currently in the studio with Diplo and having a lot of fun." The album is set for release through Interscope.
Speaking to Billboard, Diplo said that his work with Madonna has so far resulted in at least three "amazing, smashes." He added: "I got really lucky because she's been really understanding and open to my ideas. And she's like, 'I hate sleeping…'". The album will follow 2012's 'MDNA'. Madonna has also recorded with Avicii and British pop star Natalia Kills for the project.
One of the songs expected to be on the LP is 'Bitch, I'm Madonna'. Diplo revealed the existence of the track during an interview with Brazilian website Heloisa Tolipan.
He explained: "I met Madonna because of her kids and then she invited me to a party. We ended up writing seven songs together. I do not usually feel pressured to write hits, but when it's an artist of this caliber, it's obvious that I want to push the boundaries a little bit further and surpass myself. One of the songs we wrote is very cool and is called 'Bitch, I'm Madonna'."
Disclosure recently confirmed that they are not producing Madonna's forthcoming new album. Rumours began that the British dance duo were working with the pop star after she posted a picture of her with them at the Governors Ball festival in New York in June.
However, Disclosure have confirmed that this isn't the case. "She came to our gig at Governors Ball," Howard Lawrence told Billboard, "and within a few hours, there were articles being written about how we were producing her album – and we had met her that day. How could we even have done that?"
