Here is a "rumour" report on the next Madge album...
During pre-production of the new album a Madonna/Gaga collaboration or Madonna singing a song written by Gaga was being considered, but all was put aside when Madonna refused to do it because too many other artists had already done similar things.
Madonna then wanted her daughter Lourdes to be part of the project writing some lyrics, which was also put aside so as not to make the album sound teenagey.
Rumours of a release in November are getting stronger and stronger, so first official news about the album may be coming in August or September.
Ideas for a very strong promotion are in the works, involving social networks such as Facebook and brands such as Apple (it might have something to do with the iPhone 5 release which is reportedly scheduled for November).
Four songs have been recorded so far. Reportedly, one of them is a demo track from the American Life/Confessions On A Dance Floor sessions. The first single, which is thought to be released one week before the album, hasn't been recorded yet.
Works in the recording studio will be over in late September.
