Disclosure tells Billboard that they met Madonna during their set at the Governors Ball, but they have yet to collaborate on her new album.
If you were waiting for a collaboration between Madonna and Disclosure to be confirmed for her upcoming album, then you might need to wait a little longer.
On Tuesday, July 1, the electro-pop duo spoke to Billboard about their time spent with Madonna. “She came to our gig at Governors Ball, and within a few hours, there were articles being written about how we were producing her album,” Howard Lawrence (one half of Disclosure) said. “We had met her that day. How could we even have done that?” Guess the hype for new Madonna music really is high, especially after the poorly-received MDNA, which was released back in 2012.
Despite the fact that the artists haven’t actually worked together, it doesn’t mean we won’t see a feature from the “Latch” hitmakers on Madonna’s new album. Guy Lawrence, the other half of the duo, describes the pop titan as a “really cool” and “very chill” kind of gal, so let’s just hope they take that laid-back chemistry from their DJ sets into the recording booth. Madonna has already worked with Avicii, Natalia Kills and Toby Gad on the project.
One half of Madonna’s fashion duo, Mert + Marcus, took to Instagram in April and alluded that the singer had already completed her LP. However, sources told Billboard that the album was not complete.
Aside from the Disclosure development, Miss Madge kept the momentum strong for her music when she took to Instagram a day later to tease new music. In the caption, the singer, wrote “Coming soon……..#promise #keep#sorceress#deep.”
