Some trustful team,  long juicy sessions and the album is ready. LAP was recorded in like two weeks.  

We can only pray for this.

Question. Do you guys think that after the leakgate she will announce that she's recording a new album?  

If she decides to go simple and avoid the mess of rental producers she will record it without anyone knowing.  

If she does that she would have to record with a whole lot less producers then she worked with on MDNA & RH...

It would probably never happen, but I'd like to see her do some outside the box music projects. Go rogue. Put out a some EPs with 4 or 6 super creative songs and videos and maybe not get tied up with the typical album process. She gets to be creative and change the styles, sounds and themes often - we get interesting music and visuals.. Win Win.  

I won't hold my breath. :)

Only based on what's she's offered recently in interview snippets, I'd wager a new movie is going to come first. Plus, she just wrapped up a world tour not but 9 months ago and considering how every new album seems to have a tour hot on its heels, I'd think she wants a little more time between them.

On the other hand, getting a film made takes forever. And, I am really curious who is going to fund it as her film projects of late haven't made any money. Not to say she couldn't fund it herself, or that such a labor of love isn't worth it (creatively), but films are a business. If your movies aren't bringing in the masses, it's really hard to attract the proper talent and investors - let alone distributors. Also, let's not forget that in her September 2013 Reddit chat that the next thing on her "to do" list was direct a new movie, and nothing ever materialize on that front so she just started working on Rebel Heart.

I think it'd be kind of cool if she self-funded and directed a small, independent film with unknown actors that centers on something pertinent but kind of left-field. Something like that gay boxer story that was rumored a while back. I think a gay athlete story is something she could parlay to the screen quite well - seeing as how she's the ultimate gay icon, obviously challenges the male heterosexual power structure regularly, and has had long-standing ties to the athletic world. And of course, I'd love her to do a new soundtrack song - if not for her own film than for someone else's. And write it with Patrick Leonard because it would be the ultimate fait accompli to see those two accept an Oscar for best song in 2018.

The next album really needs to be a tour de force that gives a big nod to all the fallen cultural figures of the past few years. She's the last one standing, and her voice is now much more important now. I suspect it will be unapologetically political as well - I think the Trump administration will be a very sobering thing for women and minorities.

I'm expecting a year of nothing other than film development TBH :( 

And we had no leaks over Christmas which we normally used to get so I think it will be a very quiet M year. 

I hope I'm wrong but with the RH tour just finished I think she'll want to do something else like the film.

Oh well!

It'll prob be the equivalent of 2013, just a long break, mini side projects and the tour DVD.

Last year was basically 2013 besides the first few months , I hope this year will be like 2014 when she created a new album!

Hopefully movie this year and album in 2018. I honestly feel like if she makes a record now it's all gonna be ranting about Donald Trump and sexism and I don't want that.

Nothing wrong with an album like American Life again, she could also talk about all the icons who have now passed on & how she is now the last one left (although she already sort of sang about it on "Iconic").

Recorded.

Writing and producing takes time though.

Honestly, I don't want it at all either even though fans might want it. Just a downer and played out.

I wouldn't be terribly dissapointed if we got a movie. I really enjoyed WE.

I meant written too.  Pat called Madonna,  they met and wrote all songs in less than a week.  

Vogue in two days 

She has spent months in Rebel Heart but that was because of those losers' schedules.

But AL the album is nothing like the title track itself. I just speculate that if she is to make one record at this moment it will be all about promoting freedom of expression, revolution of love, fighting against sexism, ageism and Trump in a very literal way and that's just not my cup of tea.

"Other" -- we're getting nothing this year except for the tour DVD with zero special features, per usual.

An awful lot of people in this thread are saying they think we'll get a new movie this year. I'm sorry but :lmao: And if she's directing?! :lmao::lmao: 

Films have huge production schedules. It takes years to win rights to a script, secure funding, cast a film, set a schedule that works for cast and crew, scout locations, make sets and costumes, and actually film the thing -- and that's to say nothing of post-production work like editing and sound mixing.

Look at the production schedules for small films -- budgets of $5m and under -- that are out right now. Production on "Moonlight" began in early 2015. Filming began in October 2015. It premiered in September 2016 and was released October 2016. That's six to eight months to produce and film, and a year of postproduction before its release. Films with mid-sized budgets like "W.E." take even longer. (She began working on "W.E." when she was married to Guy -- the movie was released almost four years after their divorce.)

If her next project is directing a movie, as she's said she will, I don't expect a movie release til late-2018 at the earliest -- new music in 2019 at the earliest.

I think the only way we get music earlier than 2019 is if she decides to release an EP of cover songs. She already has the arrangements done and demos cut on a half dozen covers for RHT and TOAC, so doing an EP shouldn't take more than a few weeks to complete.

Pat Leonard has said the entire album came together in under three weeks. Of course, some things were done beforehand -- I think she's said the lyrics to "Like a Prayer" came to her when she was doing "Speed the Plow" -- but most everything was done in under a month. Her rent-a-producer habit has dramatically expanded the production times of her recent albums.

I will  love a new album. However, I know she wants to film, so it will probably be that. Realistically, it will be the RH DVD, RH live album (?), and just directing the film and making a few appearances here and there. It will be nice if she did release an ep or a soundtrack song +videos. It's always nice to dream. I hope at some point, she sings somewhere live at least once. Perhaps another TOAC or something will be great. I keep thinking how WTG is going to be 30 this year - and so is YCD - but I highly doubt those anniversaries will be acknowledged. I can only imagine a one off anniversary live show where we get to hear her sing and perform to WTG, CAC, TLOL, CS, and Spotlight, and maybe a few other YCD songs. Of course, she never did that, but it is fun to think about. I have to mention one more thing - maybe brunette for a while to keep things interesting.

Exactly the losers and the rent a producer names (which is exactly what you do, but here is denoted as negative) gave us LFL, GT, DP, BIM, UB, JOA, HBC, MESSIAH, VVV... etc, etc...

Sorry but this album is rich in melodies,  lyrics and ideas and a mess in production.

Well we didn't get a calendar this year so things aren't looking hopeful.

like someone else said, when she does decide to start on the film, there'll be the whole pre-production / casting  etc to do before they even begin filming, which will take about a year, then there's the post production which takes several months. I'm hoping preproduction has begun.

Please no new movie, for the love of God!!! Hopefully M will start working on a new album, but I don't suppose it will actually get released this year. The only thing we can really expect, is the Rebel Heart DVD, and perhaps one or two more Tears of a Clown shows.
