As with everything Madonna does, she does it with style, creativity and of course a ton of mystery. Step by step, Madge is revealing information about her forthcoming all-dance album, Confessions on a Dancefloor. The first single, the electro-disco-inspired â€œHung Up,â€ is set to drop Oct. 17, with the album hitting stores Nov. 15. (Iâ€™ve heard about one minute of "Hung Up" and if itâ€™s indicative of the rest of the album, this winter is going to be H-O-T-T.)
Madonna just slipped the artwork for the albumâ€™s cover on her official website. The image shows Madonna on the ground, in a ballet-dance-yoga sort of pose, wearing â€˜70s-inspired silky short-shorts and flowy top, high heels and silky strawberry hair, a la Julianne Moore in Boogie nights.
But whatâ€™s most striking to me about the design is the choice of the logotype for her name. If thereâ€™s a more iconic image of the cocaine-fueled nights of Studio 54 than a disco ball, I beg you to tell me.
While the album doesn't drop for a couple of months, you can pre-order it now.
