The Italian site for Universal Music, parent company of Interscope Records, has offered up a few more tidbits of news regarding Madonna’s forthcoming 12th studio album MDNA (out March 26). It seems the Material Girl has once again collaborated with her brother-in-law Joe Henry, who is married to Madonna’s sister Melanie and co-wrote the song that eventually became her 2001 hit “Don’t Tell Me”. Also on board: Swedish producer Klas Ahlund, LMFAO and UK pop star Mika.
In addition to “Don’t Tell Me” and a song on MDNA, Henry co-wrote Madonna’s Confessions On A Dancefloor single “Jump” and Hard Candy album track “Devil Wouldn’t Recognize You”. Universal Italy notes that Klas Ahlund, who produced such Robyn singles as “Be Mine!” and “Hang With Me”, worked on MDNA track “Girls On Film”.
Meanwhile, both “We Are Golden” crooner Mika and “Sexy And I Know It” duo LMFAO are said to have co-written with Madonna on the album. LMFAO, of course, performed with Madge at last month’s Super Bowl and remixed her single “Give Me All Your Luvin’“.
And speaking of that song, featured guest Nicki Minaj will appear on another MDNA track titled “I Don’t Give A Fuck”, while M.I.A. will also feature on “B-Day Song”.
Looks like Madonna has gone all out with the collaborations this time around. Are you looking forward to her new album?
