Madonna To Release American Life EP For RSD
For this year’s Record Store Day Madonna will release American Life – Mixshow Mix, an exclusive EP celebrating the album’s 20th anniversary and honouring the life and work of Peter Rauhofer, who created unforgettable remixes for Madonna and many other artists for over two decades!
The announcement comes barely 24 hours after RollingStone.com included American Life at #26 in their list of The 50 Genuinely Horrible Albums by Brilliant Artists, showing once more that’s there’s not much left of what used to be considered as the music bible.
According to RS, the world in 2003 had little use for Madonna the folk guitarist or Madonna the rapper, a rather short-sighted read of what American Life meant when it was released and how big its impact on pop culture has been since.
To celebrate this seminal album, a vinyl-only 8-tracks EP will be released on April 22, 2023 featuring 6 brand new edits of Madonna’s favorite commercial and promotional remixes from the American Life era.
A portion of sales proceeds will be donated to brain cancer research. On April 17, 2013, it was made public that the late Peter Rauhofer was diagnosed with a brain tumor. He passed away on May 7.
