I told you on November 6th that Madonna’s new album would come from Universal Music Group. http://www.showbiz411.com/2011/11/08/exclusive-madonna-new-album-headed-to-universal. No big deal, Page Six reports it today. I told you it would be with Jimmy Iovine at Interscope. And it is. Madonna is now on the same label as Lady Gaga, who sounds a lot like her. The new album will debut this spring–probably late–and watch for Madonna on “American Idol” since she has as much trouble selling product–CDs or digital downloads — as anyone. Who knows? Maybe she’ll (tor)mentor some kid. Anyway, Madonna had to make a record deal since her famous $120 million Live Nation deal didn’t have a recording component. In February, Madonna will try and combine her terrible “W.E.” movie release with her SuperBowl appearance and a new single called “Masterpiece.” It will be a marketing blitz to kick re-start her music career. Look for a summer/tour fall no doubt. That’s how the real money is generated.
