“The best is yet to come”
The release of Madonna’s Madame X is still a few weeks ahead but journalists and writers are receiving an exclusive first taste of the new record – X-themed cupcakes included.
Among them The Sun‘s executive editor Dan Wooton, Lucy O’Brien, author of She Bop, a history of women in popular music, and the Madonna: Like An Icon biography, freelance celebrity journalist Simon Button and Straight Jacket author Matthew Todd all shared their excitement (without spoiling the embargo) on the social media:
I’m under embargo but all I can say is X-traordinary… Can’t wait to write more.
Just listened to the whole of Madame X (with cakes). Can safely say the best is yet to come Some fantastic dark dramatic work with Mirwais.
So the verdict on Madonna Madame X is in after two listens and I think it’s brilliant. The work of an artist who is exploring her creativity and not chasing the charts
Just listened to Madame X. Reviews embargoed until June 4 but is a surprisingly intense Xperience #XpressinHerself
