And while there’s not much information about it so far, on Wednesday morning (July 2) Madge gave us a tantalizing look at what might be coming next. With the message “Coming soon……..#promise #keep#sorceress#deep,” she posted the sheet music for what we’re going to assume is her modestly titled next single “Messiah.”
Now, we can’t read sheet music, so she helped us out a short time later with a video featuring a string ensemble playing a haunting movie score-like melody. “Magic makes the people come together yaaaaaaaasssssssssss. #messiah,” she wrote.
She ended her spree with a quote from author James Baldwin’s 1965 short story “Sonny’s Blues,” which touches on the importance of art as a means of personal expression. “We have Art in order not to die from the truth”nietzsche #jamesbaldwin #artforfreedom,” Madonna counseled.
Madonna recently revealed that she’s been working on the follow-up to 2012’s MDNA with Avicii and Billboard reported that she’s also collaborated with Diplo, songwriter Toby Gad, S1, Miley Cyrus collaborator MoZella, singer Natalia Kills and Cherrytree Records chairman Martin Kierszenbaum.
