Madonna’s New Album “Sounds Good” According To William Orbit

Madonna has rounded up an impressive roster of collaborators for her next album, the follow-up to 2012′s MDNA. As she’s shown on Instagram, she’s teamed up with both reliable pop songwriters (MoZella, Symbolyc One, Toby Gad) and cutting-edge producers (Diplo, Avicii, maybe Disclosure) alike. Besides that, though, she’s revealed little else about the actual music: What does it sound like? When will it be released? How will it compare to her greatest hits?

So when William Orbit spoke up after hearing a few new Madonna songs – even with a statement as simple as “Heard some of Madonna’s new album. Sounds good” – fans sighed in relief. See, Orbit has collaborated with Madonna since 1998’s Ray of Light, while she was inspired by the current crop of European and U.K. electronic music at the time. Orbit went on to work with the pop icon in 2000’s Music and MDNA.

By now, Orbit’s word is as good as gold – especially since, in between updates about her new material, Madonna has been cold chillin’.
