Now, with her tenth album just leaving the works, it is said that Confessions on a Dancefloor will be returning Madonna to her roots. Slated for a November 15 release, the artist has dubbed her newest sound "future disco." (It can only be presumed that "future disco" is 100 times better than "old disco.") Described by latest producer Stuart Price, the album's first single is "a big feel-good song. You put it on and you want to get in your car, turn it up and drive around smiling." The newest synth-pop selection is entitled 'Hung Up.'
But Madonna and Price weren't entirely confident, at first, in a return to the rave scene:
"There's a bit of a danger with dance music that you can create something that's cool but doesn't have much substance to it," he admits. "Every few months, a club record comes along that hits a nerve with people, and they connect to it. They don't know why, but there is something magical in it. That's what we were trying to make. [Stuart Price]"
Will Confessions on a Dancefloor be magical? As a guilty Madonna fan, I hope so.
