Madonna, who turns 63 today, has signed a new partnership deal with her longtime label Warner Music with the mission of reissuing music starting in 2022 – the 40th anniversary of her career as a recording artist.
“All in all, the new pact includes 17 studio albums plus singles, soundtrack recordings, live albums, and compilations,” WMG said in a statement in which Madonna will “personally curate expansive deluxe editions for many of her landmark albums and introduce unique releases for special events, and much more.”
Madonna released all of her albums through WMG up until 2008’s Hard Candy. She would then sign a deal with Live Nation and Interscope that lasted over a decade and oversaw the release of her last three albums: 2012’s MDNA, 2015’s Rebel Heart, and 2019’s Madame X.
“Since the very beginning, Warner Music Group has helped bring my music and vision to all my fans around the world with the utmost care and consideration,” Madonna said in a statement. “They have been amazing partners, and I am delighted to be embarking on this next chapter with them to celebrate my catalogue from the last 40 years.”
Madonna currently has no plans to release any new music. The singer is working on writing her biopic and readying the release of her Madame X Tour live concert film set to premiere Oct. 8 on the Paramount+ streaming service.
