Madonna – 2012 New Album Preview
As of late, Madonna's new 2012 album has been creating a lot of buzz -- with a release date scheduled for March 2012. Madge fanatics have been busy gathering as many details as possible about the new, yet-to-be titled 12th studio album, from artists and producers that Madge has been working with to possible track names.
So far, Madonna's new song 'Gimme All Your Luvin'' has been getting lots of hype. The track, which Madge has already wrapped a video shoot for, features rapper Nicki Minaj and electro-dance singer M.I.A. Although it's unlikely that this leaked version is the final album recording of 'Gimme All Your Luvin',' the overall sound of the dance-pop song (listen here) is upbeat, with cheerful synths, drums and cheerleader chants.
One other Madonna track has been released to the public for their listening pleasure -- the ballad 'Masterpiece' (listen here) which is also featured in her film 'W.E.' Another track that is rumored to appear on her 2012 album release is 'Turn Up the Radio,' which DJ/producer (and album collaborator) Martin Solveig performs live sans Madonna's vocals (listen here).
Some other supposed track names that have been swirling around the Internet are 'Birthday Song,' 'Bang Bang' and 'Girls Gone Wild.' It's been reported that Madge, who just signed a huge record deal with Interscope, worked with producer William Orbit (whom the singer worked on 'Ray of Light') on the "fun, ultra-catchy pop" track 'Birthday Song.'
From the looks of it, Madonna's new 2012 album will be a huge success, especially with features from huge artists in a plethora of genres. Madge knows how to keep up with the times, and recruiting contemporary and edgy artists like Nicki Minaj, M.I.A. and Martin Solveig will surely yield big results for the pop icon.

UPDATE: Madge announced on her Facebook that the name of her 12th studio album is 'M.D.N.A.'
