In an interview with the Los Angeles Times just 24 hours before accepting the Golden Globe for Best Original Score for W.E.‘s “Masterpiece,” Madonna gave writer Rebecca Keegan a few new details regarding her upcoming twelfth studio album, MDNA.
For one, she confirmed a new track on the record: “Beautiful Killer,” an ode to french actor Alain Delon. “I’ve seen every movie Alain Delon’s ever made…he’s so charismatic,” she told the newspaper.
Madonna also spoke a little bit more about the sound of the record, explaining how the sound differs between producers:
“I feel like all the records on the radio right now have a homogenized quality to them,” she said in The Times interview. “I’ve made a huge effort to try and not sound like everybody else. The music that I’ve done with William is quite introspective, whereas Martin’s is more ironic and funny and upbeat. There’s a really up aspect to it and a really fun aspect to it.”
Thus the light and the dark motif she’s been talking about: There will be heavier moments like Orbit‘s “Masterpiece” and lighter moments like Solveig‘s “Gimme All Your Luvin’.”
