Kills on Madonna album: ‘Incredible lyrics, beautiful melodies’

By Josh Haggis


Natalia Kills has teased details of her work on Madonna’s forthcoming album.

The cult pop singer, spent time in the studio with Madonna and Gaga producer Martin Kierszenbaum earlier this year, has revealed that the trio worked on eight songs for the Queen of Pop’s new album over the course of seven days.

“She writes incredible lyrics, sings beautiful melodies, but most of all she is so fucking funny,” Kills told Paper.

Kills went on to reveal that the collaboration came about after Madonna heard her dancers rehearsing to her music: “Madonna’s dancers play my music during her rehearsals and workouts every week.”

In recent months, the Queen of Pop has used her Instagram to reveal the diverse palette of collaborators she has assembled for her new album. The list now comprises Kills, MIA collaborator Diplo, Sky Ferreira/Haim producer Ariel Rechtshaid, Wrecking Ball co-writer MoZella, DJ/producer Avicii, former Lady Gaga collaborator Martin Kierszenbaum, rising British popstar MNEK, US hit-maker Toby Gad and R&B producer Symbolyc One.

Meanwhile, Madonna’s manager, Guy Oseary, recently revealed that the singer’s new album won’t be due until 2015 – find out more here.

Madonna’s last studio album, MDNA, was released in 2012 and reached Number One in the US and UK. She scored her 13th and most recent UK chart-topping single with 4 Minutes in 2008.
