Madonna, Manager Respond to 'Give Me All Your Love' Single Leak
In response to the leak of a demo of Madonna's new single, "Give Me All Your Love," the diva says, "My true fans wouldn't do this." She said that to her manager, Guy Oseary, who took to his Twitter account ( @guyoseary) today (Nov. 9) to address the leak.
Yesterday morning, two short snippets of "Give Me All Your Love," the alleged first single from Madonna's upcoming album, leaked to the web. A few hours later, the entire song materialized.
Oseary says "the plan was for new music to come out in the new year, and yet someone leaked a demo version of a song yesterday. I'm very happy with the positive reaction to the demo, but we are very upset with whoever leaked the song!!!"
He went on to respond to questions from fans, saying that the album doesn't have a title, nor is it finished yet. "It should be done in the next month or so," he said. The set will be Madonna's first studio album since 2008's "Hard Candy," which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, selling 280,000 copies in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
The new album will be her first studio release after leaving Warner Bros. Records and entering into an all-encompassing deal with Live Nation. Sources suggest the effort will find a home within the Universal Music Group in the United States, and likely at Interscope Records. Madonna's last release of any sort, the 2010 live record "Sticky & Sweet Tour," was issued through Warner Bros., despite the diva having already departed the label.
Her fellow Live Nation act, Jay-Z, released his last two studio sets via two different labels. 2009's "The Blueprint 3" was handled by Atlantic and distributed by WEA, while this year's "Watch the Throne" collaboration with Kanye West came out via Roc-a-Fella/Def Jam and Universal Music Group Distribution.
Oseary also confirmed that Madonna has written a ballad for the film "W.E.," which she directed and co-wrote. It is due for release in theaters on Dec. 9 in the United States. He didn't indicate that Madonna herself would be singing the tune, but it's presumed she will.
Madonna and Oseary will be on hand at at the Roseland Ballroom on Saturday, Nov. 12, where Madonna will select the winner of a Smirnoff-sponsored dance contest. The victor will be named a member of her "dance crew" -- though what that prize entails hasn't been explicitly described.
