MADONNA’s new album Hard Candy is her most lyrically revealing collection ever – picking over the bones of relationships in meltdown.
Tracks frankly dissect the pain that comes when partnerships sour.
The 49-year-old has never been more confessional than on a string of tracks on the collection which is released on April 28.
Here’s my pick of the juiciest lyrics.
Miles Away – “I’m alright/Don’t be sorry, it’s true/When I’m gone you’ll realise I’m the best thing that ever happened to you.”
She’s Not Me – “She’s reading my books/Stealing my looks and wearing my lingerie/She’s got legs up to there and such beautiful hair/Devoted for life, your beautiful wife/She’s not me.”
Devil Wouldn’t Recognize You – “There’s something you should know/Angels that surround my heart/Are telling me to let you go/Over and over you’re pulling me back to the floor/I should just walk away. I keep on coming back for more”
Madge has worked with some of the biggest producers on the planet on this – her 11th studio album.
JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE, TIMBALAND, KANYE WEST and PHARELL WILLIAMS all lend a hand on the impressively varied LP.
There’s thundering hip hop – Heartbeat, sumptuous disco – Dance 2night and grand balladeering – Voices.
