Madonna’s Diplo and Avicii-Assisted Album Will Arrive in 2015

Madonna fans will have to wait to give her all their loving. Following months in the studio working with superstar producers like Avicii and Diplo, Madge and her camp have announced that the singer’s forthcoming album — widely rumored to be titled Unapologetic Bitch, a hashtag Madonna has been overusing in her Instagram posts this year — will not see the light of day until 2015.

According to Billboard, the “La Isla Bonita” singer “is planning for [the album] to be released in 2015,” but in the meantime she’s “currently in the studio with Diplo and having a lot of fun.” Madge’s Instagram has documented her recording process this year, with help from artists like Natalia Kills, MoZella (who wrote Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball”), S1 (a Beyoncé collaborator), and producer Ariel Rechstaid (Haim, Sky Ferreira, Vampire Weekend).

It might sound like a mishmash of names, but Madonna is known for testing out sounds in bulk before settling on a feel for her albums, so don’t be shocked if all but one or two of those names are cut when the final product comes next year. Here’s a brief video of a choir recording mysterious backing vocals.
