Madonna signs Interscope deal

Business News Deals Labels & Publishers

Madonna

Madonna has reportedly signed a new record deal with Universal division Interscope, the first release under the deal being her in-production new album

Madonna, of course, has an existing multi-layered partnership with Live Nation which includes her recording activity now that she is out of her previous recording contract with Warner Music. Though original plans by the live music conglom when it entered into so called 360 degree arrangements with four A-list artists back in 2007, to have a specific division handling that side of things never really got off the ground, so it’s seemed likely for a while any future Madonna album releases would be in partnership with a major.

It’s thought the deal with Interscope will be for three albums, the first of which will be released in January around about the singer’s appearance at the Super Bowl. Universal and Live Nation, which are already collaborating elsewhere on a new artist partnerships business, will announce the Madonna deal later today.
