According to billboard.com, Madonna is working on a new album:
Work is progressing on Madonna's next studio album, although details are scant at deadline. "If you haven't heard that Madonna is back in the studio recording, then you might be living under a rock," a statement on her official Web site says. "Madonna is busy in the studio collaborating with new producers that she has never worked with before."
At deadline, it was unknown when the as-yet-untitled album would be released, or with whom Madonna was working.
As you may remember, a while back I posted something about this album. At the time, there was talk of the album having a Franz Ferdinand feel, and I said that it is Advanced to say that you are influenced by a young, cool band and then making music that doesn't sound anything like them. Well, I don't see any reference to Franz Ferdinand anywhere on her website these days, if you know what I mean.
