Madonna to curate deluxe editions of landmark albums in career-spanning reissue campaign

Madonna Bridgestone Super Bowl XLVI Halftime Show Press Conference

Madonna and Warner Music Group have announced a milestone, career-spanning global partnership that includes a new agreement for her entire recorded music catalog.

The singer, who is the top-selling female recording artist of all time, has sold more than 300 million records worldwide. She launched her career with Warner, has won seven Grammys and dozens of other major awards, including 24 ASCAP Pop Music Awards, MTV VMAs, Brits, Ivor Novellos, Junos, and more, and was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2008.

A rep for Warner confirmed that the partnership does not address new recordings; Madonna’s deal with Interscope Records ended last year, so she apparently remains a free agent for future music projects.

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.

Of the deal, 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.”

On October 8, Madonna will be releasing her documentary film, Madame X, exclusively on Paramount+ (on MTV in markets where that channel is not available). Filmed in Lisbon, Portugal, the film captures her 2019 tour performance.
