MADONNA TO PERFORM "FUTURE" LIVE FOR THE FIRST TIME AT EUROVISION FINALE IN TEL AVIV ON MAY 18
MADAME X TOUR INTIMATE CONCERT EXPERIENCE BEGINS SEPTEMBER 12
17 May 2019 (Toronto, ON) – Today, Madonna released “Future” featuring Quavo and co-produced with Diplo. The electronic-tinged Jamaican dancehall vibes of “Future” is the fourth track of five songs to be previewed before her highly-anticipated new studio album Madame X debuts globally on June 14. Following the release of the critically-acclaimed “Medellín”, the empowering “I Rise” and the infectious pop gem “Crave”, the next song to be shared with fans is the sonically innovative “Dark Ballet” on June 7.
Madonna says of “Future” featuring Quavo, “It’s a song about the world that we live in today and the future of our civilization.” Listen to “Future” HERE.
Madonna is set to headline the stage at Eurovision in Tel Aviv on Saturday and will perform “Future” with Quavo live for the first time, as well as “Like A Prayer” which celebrates its 30th Anniversary this year. Madonna will embark on her highly-anticipated Madame X Tour, a series of rare and intimate performances taking place exclusively in theatres in select cities, starting September 12 in New York. Tickets and further information is available at madonna.livenation.com. Here is a link to a video from Madonna about the Tour: https://madonna.lnk.to/TourVid.
Influenced creatively by living in Lisbon, Portugal over the past several years, Madame X is a collection of 15 new songs that celebrate Madonna’s career-long affair with Latin music and culture as well as other global influences. Singing in Portuguese, Spanish and English, Madonna collaborated on Madame X with longtime producer Mirwais, as well as with producers Mike Dean and Diplo, among others.
Rolling Stone says, “‘Crave’ is a sultry pop number about hungering for another person,” and MTV declares about “Crave” that, “It's nearly impossible to listen to this without a smile sneaking to the corners of your face.” Of “I Rise”, NME says the song, “is politics and positivity combined,” while Billboard calls it, “Powerful.” NPR says, “‘Medellín’ is a carefully dosed combination of…coolly narcotic dance-pop…and energetic reggaetón,” while Entertainment Weekly declares the song is, “A breezy, summer-ready anthem…” The Guardian says, “‘Medellín’ is a potent reminder of Madonna’s deft history of meshing genres.”
Madame X from Live Nation/Interscope Records/Maverick/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company, will come in a standard and deluxe version of the album and is now available for pre-order HERE. Album pre-orders include a download of “Medellín”, “I Rise”, “Crave” and “Future” and are available across Apple, Spotify (pre-save), Amazon and all DSPs.
