Madonna Announces New Album 'Madame X' -- Watch the Teaser!
By Desiree Murphy
Madonna is back!
The 60-year-old singer took to Instagram on Saturday, revealing a new album, titled Madame X, is on the way, marking her first full-length LP since 2015's Rebel Heart.
In a series of posts, Madonna explained that the persona of Madame X is a secret agent who is "traveling around the world, changing identity, fighting for freedom, and bringing light to dark places."
"She is a Cha Cha instructor, a professor, a head of state, a housekeeper, an equestrian, a prisoner, a student, a mother, a child, a teacher, a nun, a cabaret singer, a saint and a prostitute," she adds.
Madonna then shared three videos of herself in character as Madame X. "The thing that hurt the most was that I wasn’t lost," she sings in one of them.
Madonna seemingly teased new music was coming during her performance at last year's Met Gala, where she sang an unreleased tune rumored to be called "Beautiful Game."
“It’s a beautiful plan, but I’m not concerned / It’s a beautiful game, that I never learned," she sang. "You have taught me to shut my mouth, so I don’t get burned / Keep your beautiful lies, ‘cause I’m not concerned."
