Madonna to release first album in Live Nation deal
LOS ANGELES—The Material Girl is finally going to make good on her promise to produce new albums under an all-encompassing rights deal worth $120 million that she signed with concert promoter Live Nation more than four years ago.
Madonna will release a new album in late March through Universal Music Group's Interscope Records, the label said Thursday.
Live Nation Entertainment Inc. will participate in the profits, if the album does well.
It's her first album in five years. It will follow the late January release of the single "Gimme All Your Luvin'" and her halftime performance at the Super Bowl on Feb. 5.
