Live Nation Confirms Madonna to Release New Album in March, “Gimme All Your Luvin” in January
Okay, so now it’s really, really official: Madonna’s upcoming twelfth studio album will be released in March (which is SO SOON, by the way) and the single–which has been retitled from the former demo title of “Give Me All Your Love” to “Gimme All Your Luvin”–is out in the last week of January.
LOS ANGELES, Dec. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Madonna will have a new album out in late March; it was officially confirmed today by Interscope Records. In one component of a very broad plan developed by long time manager Guy Oseary and Live Nation Entertainment, the Material Girl has signed a three album deal with Interscope Records. The new album, her first in five years, has been completed. “Gimme All Your Luvin,” the first single from the album, will be released the last week in January prior to her upcoming Bridgestone Halftime Superbowl appearance on February 5th.
In 2007, Madonna signed a multi-faceted deal with Live Nation that includes new studio albums, touring, merchandising, fan club/website, DVDs, music-related television and film projects and associated sponsorship agreements. “We look forward to a great partnership,” commented Live Nation Entertainment’s Chairman of Global Music & CEO, Global Touring Arthur Fogel. Oseary was equally enthusiastic: “We couldn’t be happier to work with Jimmy Iovine, Lucian Grainge (Chairman & CEO, Universal Music Group) and the entire Interscope team. We anticipate a very bright future at our new home,” added Jimmy Iovine, Chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M. “Very rarely does an opportunity like this come around. We would like to thank Madonna, Guy and Live Nation for their belief in us.”
As we already know here at MuuMuse, any song with “Gimme” in the title is 100% scientifically proven to be perfect.
Lesser divas, fasten your wigs–it’s gon’ be a bumpy 2012.
