Madonna To Cover 'American Pie' For Soundtrack

'The Next Best Thing' to feature two new songs from the dance-pop icon.

Madonna has recorded two songs for the soundtrack to her upcoming film, "The Next Best Thing," according to a spokesperson for the diva. Producer William Orbit — who helmed her Grammy-winning 1998 album, Ray of Light — co-produced both songs, one of which is a cover of Don McClean's signature 1971 hit, "American Pie," a source close to the project confirmed. The film, co-starring Rupert Everett ("An Ideal Husband") and Benjamin Bratt (formerly of "Law & Order"), is slated to open March 10, while the soundtrack is scheduled to hit stores Feb. 29. A complete track listing has not been released.
