Following her appearance at the Catholic-themed 2018 Met Gala this month, Madonna has announced that she will release a new single soon.
Madonna Teases New Track
On social media, the 59-year-old teased a song titled "Beautiful Game." She also posted a photo of what appears to be the cover art of the song.
Wearing a gold crown and geometrical halo, Madonna looked like a modern saint.
That I never Learned.............Coming Soon! #music #magic #mirwais pic.twitter.com/LDKhq7d3kS — Madonna (@Madonna) May 17, 2018
Not much is known about the new track, but the world-renowned singer promised that the track is coming soon. In her cryptic Instagram and Twitter post, she also revealed that the track involved her frequent collaborator, Mirwais.
Mirwais was also the man behind her 2000 album Music and 2003's American Life. The Grammy-winning singer revealed that she is back in the studio with the record producer earlier this month.
On a video on Twitter, Madonna was singing along to an unnamed song and said she is having fun recording.

New Now Next reported that Madonna first teased the track at the 2018 Met Gala. During a performance of "Like A Prayer," the singer gave attendees a short preview of the unreleased song.
"It's a beautiful plan, but I'm not concerned/ It's a beautiful game, that I never learned." she sang. "You have taught me to shut my mouth, that I not get burned, keep your beautiful lies, 'cause I'm not concerned."
Madonna's most recent album was Rebel Heart released back in 2015. While it landed second on the Billboard 200, and despite the involvement of popular musicians such as Nicki Minaj and Chance The Rapper, it became her worst-performing album commercially in the United States in 20 years.
Madonna Loses Lawsuit
Her new song comes a few weeks after she reportedly lost a legal battle against the sale of the letters sent to her by her ex-boyfriend and late rap icon Tupac Shakur.
According to Page Six, the Manhattan Supreme Court ruled that the singer's former friend Darlene Lutz will be allowed to sell her personal items, including her letters because the statute of limitation to recover her belongings has already passed.
Apparently, the "Material Girl" singer only had three years to sue for the returns of the items that went missing after she had moved out of her home in Miami around 2004.
However, the award-winning performer claims that she did not even notice that the items were gone until she saw an online auctioneer put the love letters, a hairbrush that has strands of her hair, a pair of satin panties, and other memorabilia up for sale in 2017.
She immediately filed a lawsuit against the auctioneer and Lutz was able to block the sale of her possessions last year.
