Madonna releases “Crave” featuring Swae Lee.
Madonna has released “Crave” featuring Swae Lee and co-produced with Mike Dean and Billboard. The infectious pop gem, co-written by Madonna and Starrah, is the third track of five songs to be previewed before her highly-anticipated new studio album “Madame X”, which debuts globally on June 14th. Following the release of the critically-acclaimed “Medellín” and the empowering “I Rise”, additional songs to be shared with fans include the Jamaican dancehall vibes of “Future” featuring Quavo on May 17th, as well as the sonically innovative “Dark Ballet” on June 7th.
Madonna announced earlier this week her Madame X Tour, a series of rare and intimate performances taking place exclusively in theaters in select cities. Demand was so overwhelming, additional shows have already been confirmed and are available for ticket request alongside the original shows through Friday, May 10 at 11:59pm ET. In New York, 12 shows are confirmed at the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House. In Los Angeles, nine shows are set at The Wiltern. The Madame X Tour will also visit Las Vegas, Boston, Philadelphia, Miami, Lisbon, London and Paris. Dates and details on those cities to come in the near future.
Influenced creatively by living in Lisbon, Portugal over the past several years, “Madame X” is a collection of 15 new songs that celebrate Madonna’s career-long affair with Latin music and culture as well as other global influences. Singing in Portuguese, Spanish and English, Madonna collaborated on “Madame X” with longtime producer Mirwais, as well as with producers Mike Dean and Diplo, among others.
“Madame X” from Live Nation, Interscope Records and Maverick will come in a standard and deluxe version of the album and is now available for pre-order. Album pre-orders include a download of “Medellín,” “I Rise” and “Crave,” which is available across Apple, Spotify (pre-save), Amazon and all DSPs. Exclusive album pre-order bundles with limited edition merchandise are now available direct from Madonna’s website.
