Madonna is hard at work on her follow-up to 2008’s Hard Candy. So, what will this album sound like? Well, in a recent interview with Swedish Sveriges Television, she simply stated: “It will be more good music.” Fair enough, Madge, you needn’t say more!
There haven’t been too many details about the album, but here is what we know so far: it’s expected to drop early next year, the first single may be released in February or March and she’s working with Ray of Light producer William Orbit.
Yet, we recently learned another possible detail about the hotly awaited record – some of that good music may just come from Aussie sister DJ-duo NERVO (Liv and Mim). The girls, who spent their summer as an opening act on Britney Spears’ Femme Fatale Tour, have written songs for some of the biggest artists in the business, including, Ke$ha, David Guetta and Nicole Scherzinger, and could possibly be adding Madonna to that list.
“That one, you know, it’s another one we’ll see if the stars align,” Liv told us. “But she’s expressed interest in a song of ours and she’s working with William Orbit, who’s an incredible producer, and who she’s worked with in the past.”
And if the “We’re All No One” singers do end up on the album, they will have William Orbit to thank.
“He actually was the one who pitched her the song of ours – pitched it to Madonna – and fingers crossed! Now that we’ve spoken about it, of course, it’s not going to happen,” Liv joked.
NERVO were tight-lipped on what song the Queen of Pop is interested in, but just the thought of working with Madonna would mean everything to these girls.
“It would be amazing. Madonna is iconic,” Liv said. “It would be an absolute career high!”
