MDNA was recorded in New York and LA, reunites Madonna with former collaborator William Orbit (“Ray of Light”) who co-wrote and co-produced several cuts on the new album. Other co-producers include Martin Solveig, The Demolition Crew, Marco “Benny” Benassi and Alessandro “Alle” Benassi, Hardy “Indiigo” Muanza, Michael Malih and Madonna. The current single is “Girls Gone Wild.”
The official video for “Girls Gone Wild” has not been released but here is a YouTube video made by a fan that has been getting a lot of attention:
Producer Benny Benassi talked to Italian newspaper La Stampa about working on MDNA and how it came to fruition: “Madonna’s management contacted us to open her 2008 concert in Rome, in every city they used a local DJ. On that occasion I gave her one my CDs with some demos I created in our studio in Reggio Emilia. We didn’t hear anything back from them. Then a few months ago Madonna asked one of her producers to call us. She asked us to work on two tracks for her new album. She wanted dance sounds, sharp rythmes that would fit the audience of a pop star. After a while we were in the studio with her in London, for an entire week, working 10 hours a day, to produce the final versions of those two tracks. We were amazed by her dedication. Though she’s the mastermind behind an entertainment business empire, she tries everything first hand, she tests every single sound.”
Benassi explained that Madonna made the album for people who love to dance and merry the night: “She told us that this record must be for her, a declaration of love for the world of nightclubs. An album that contains the styles and atmospheres that have characterized the last decades of international nightlife. We represent the Italian dance for her vision, immediately recognizable, made in the “Reggio Emilia. In Girl Gone Wild the repeating sounds and distorted rhythms are put together typical of Italian Dance pop/disco.”
