[artist id="1098"]Madonna[/artist] is readying the release of her [article id="1677103"]album M.D.N.A.,[/article] and for it she headed back into the studio with a familiar face. She hooked up once again with producer William Orbit, who worked on a number of tracks on the album, including her [article id="1677336"]Golden Globe Award-winning "Masterpiece."[/article]
The relationship between Madonna and Orbit has been a fruitful one. He produced most of the songs on 1998's Ray of Light, including "Ray of Light," "Nothing Really Matters," "Frozen" and "The Power of Good-bye." The album later won several Grammy Awards and VMAs.
Their work together didn't end there. One year later, they produced Madge's "Austin Powers" soundtrack song, "Beautiful Stranger," which nabbed a Grammy Award in 2000. In the years since, she worked with Orbit on several unreleased tracks.
So, when it came to their latest collaboration, words weren't needed. "With William, I didn't really have a discussion," she told MTV News at the New York [article id="1677811"]premiere of "W.E."[/article] "We've worked on stuff for so many years that we kind of finish each other's sentences. He knows my taste and what I like."
With "Masterpiece" serving as a tease, the singer later added, "Magic happens when we get into a recording studio together."
As fans prep for the release of her studio album, they can look forward to her [article id="1677849"]halftime Super Bowl performance[/article] and her video for the Martin Solveig-produced "Gimme All Your Luvin" (which also features Nicki Minaj and M.I.A.).
