Pop Emergency! Madonna’s New Album Is Called ‘Madame X’
Only Madonna would have the nerve to launch a new era on a Sunday morning in the middle of Coachella! But that’s exactly what the Queen of Pop did when she fired up her iconic Instagram account to post an album teaser created by videographer Nuno Xico and famed photographer Steven Klein. “I decided to call my record Madame X,” the sexy 60-year-old reveals in the video. “Madame X is a secret agent, traveling around the world, changing identities, fighting for freedom, bringing light to dark places.”
This is where it gets (even more) interesting. “Madame X is a dancer, a professor, a head of state, a housekeeper, an equestrian, a prisoner, a student, a mother, a child, a teacher, a nun, a singer, a saint, a whore and a spy in the house of love,” Madonna elaborates. Are we getting a concept album? A song devoted to each of these identities and/or occupations? Time will tell, but the the pop legend’s new era is looking very promising. She actually managed to pull off a surprise (I genuinely thought the album would be called Magic) and nothing has leaked!
Get acquainted with Madame X below.
