Madonna is about to release new music. She’s kept fans waiting for three whole years, but the time is right for Madonna to get cracking out more records.
It’ll be called Beautiful Game, and her 14th studio album is on the way too, as confirmed by her social media channels.

Alongside the single artwork for Beautiful Game, Madonna wrote: ‘That I never Learned … Coming Soon! £music £magic £mirwais.’ She recently performed the song live at the Met Gala, and the idea that it’s something she ‘never learned’ appears to come from the lyrics.
She sang: ‘It’s a beautiful plan, but I’m not concerned, it’s a beautiful game, that I never learned, you have taught me to shut my mouth, that I not get burned, keep your beautiful lies, ’cause I’m not concerned.’ On the night she again wore a crown of thorns and was flanked by a choir dressed in monk’s robes.
Announcing her new music Madonna, 59, also mentioned the producer Mirwais (full name Mirwais Ahmadzai) who she has been collaborating with on her new record. Mirwais previously worked on her albums Music and American Life. Madonna, who turns 60 in August, has been working on what will be her 14th studio album for some time and has been posting regular studio updates on social media.
Madonna’s last album was 2015’s Rebel Heart, which peaked at number two in the US and on the Official Albums Chart in the UK. Her last UK number one was 4 Minutes featuring Justin Timberlake and Timbaland back in 2007. In total Madonna has had 12 number one albums, 13 number one singles, and more number two hits than any other artist in the UK.
