The saying that things get better with time and age couldn’t be more true when it comes to the new music Madonna has been cranking out. Her latest release, ‘Masterpiece,’ is simply just that… a masterpiece of musical art.

The tune is the first release from her forthcoming album, set for release in 2012, but the overall vibe of the song has a retro feel that will take fans back to the singer’s ‘American Life’ days. The simplicity of the production allows the listener to focus on the beautifully-penned lyrics and her smooth voice that never fails to impress.

If you were the Mona Lisa / You’d be hanging in the Louvre / Everyone would come to see you / You’d be impossible to move / It seems to me / It’s what you are / A raring prize / This work of art / You stay behind / A velvet rope,” she sings in the opening verse of the song.

Madonna belts out about the pain of being in love with someone who could be compared to a great “masterpiece” of art. “And I’m right by your side / Even deep in the night / I stand in front of the masterpiece / And I can’t tell you why / It hurts so much / To be in love with a masterpiece / ‘Cause after all, nothing’s indestructible,” she continues in the chorus.

Madonna’s new single is nothing short of another “masterpiece” in her ongoing career of successful hits and a good insight of what is still to come from this phenomenal singer.
