Madonna is back with Warner Music with a new career-spanning partnership
Exciting news; Just in time for Madonna’s birthday we got the news we wanted to hear since years and years! After 11 years, Madonna signs a new milestone, career-spanning partnership with Warner Music Group.
The news comes from the official Madonna website madonna.com and includes all of the details of this new contract! Let’s get into some of the juiciest details:
This partnership marks the revitalization of a decades-long relationship with Warner that began with the release of Madonna’s debut single in 1982. The deal encompasses her entire Sire/Maverick/Warner catalog, including global smash albums such as Madonna, Like a Virgin, True Blue, Like a Prayer, and Ray of Light. It also includes her three most recent studio albums, MDNA, Rebel Heart, and Madame X, which will join the Warner catalog beginning in 2025. All in all, the new pact includes 17 studio albums plus singles, soundtrack recordings, live albums, and compilations.
By joining Warner again, Madonna’s entire catalogue will also join the catalog including all of Madonna albums and compilations, and even including the Interscope Records releases such as ‘MDNA’, ‘Rebel Heart’ and ‘Madame X’; that could possibly mean new reissues will come handy, after their joining in 2025.
2022 will mark the 40th anniversary of Madonna’s recording debut. This new deal heralds the launch next year of an extensive, multi-year series of catalog releases that will revisit the groundbreaking music that made her an international icon. For the first time, Madonna will personally curate expansive deluxe editions for many of her landmark albums, as well as introduce unique releases for special events, and much more. The series of releases will be overseen by Warner Music’s catalog team, led by Kevin Gore, President of Global Catalog, Recorded Music, with the first release to be announced soon.
We are particularly excited by this piece of news as we have been wanting and asking for Anniversary Deluxe Editions (and Box Sets) for years now, manifesting Madonna‘s catalogue to be treated with respect and bringing life to her past music! It’s finally happening, starting from the new year we will get some cool stuff and we cannot wait to hear more about it…
Madonna said: “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. 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.”
And as it comes from Madonna herself, we are also happy and delighted to see Madonna going back to her roots, with this amazing new partnership which will bring happiness to many of her fans, us included! You can read the whole press release on Madonna’s website or clicking here.
