A few days ago photographer Mert Alas posted the above picture of Madonna to his Instagram account with the caption "In my room listening to the NEW ALBUM!!!!! Im DYING!!!!!! LET ME LOVE YOU FROM INSIDE OUT". It wasn't made clear whether Alas was listening to a final version or selected rough cuts of the upcoming album, but it was enough to stir up such a buzz to the point where Madonna fans' heads collectively exploded.
Her 13th studio album is collaborating with big name efforts, such as Avicii, who wrote the pro-trans "Silhouettes"; Maureen Anne MacDonald, who wrote Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball"; and Toby Gad, who wrote and produced Beyonce's "If I Were A Boy" and Fergie's "Big Girls Don't Cry."
