Major! Madonna Inks Game-Changing Warner Deal / Readies Deluxe Editions of Classic Albums & New Music

Published: Monday 16th Aug 2021 by Sam

Madonna is celebrating her 63rd birthday today with major news!

For, the Queen of Pop has announced that she has re-signed with Warner Music in what is being billed as a ‘career-spanning partnership.’

Full story below…

Per Madonna and Warner, the pact “heralds the launch next year of an extensive, multi-year series of catalog releases that will revisit the groundbreaking music that made her an international icon.”

The music royal will personally curate robust deluxe editions for many of her cornerstone albums. Furthermore, she will stage special events and more around each release.

Unveiled moments ago, the vast multi-year deal – which comes ahead of Madge’s 40th anniversary in music next year – encompasses her entire catalog.

This includes her top-sellers and critically acclaimed efforts such as ‘Madonna,’ ‘True Blue,’ ‘Like a Prayer,’ and ‘Ray of Light,’ and ‘Music.’

Interestingly, it’ll also see Madge’s latest three albums ‘MDNA,’ ‘Rebel Heart’ and ‘Madame X’ – which were released on Universal’s Interscope – move to Warner and feature in the catalog campaign beginning 2025.

Overall, the partnership includes 17 studio albums, singles, soundtrack recordings, live albums, and compilations.

Speaking in a statement, Madonna said:

“Since the very beginning, Warner Music Group has helped bring my music and vision to all my fans around the world with the utmost care and consideration. They have been amazing partners, and I am delighted to be embarking on this next chapter with them to celebrate my catalogue from the last 40 years.”

The star’s longtime manager Guy Oseary added:

“Over the past 30 years, I’ve been fortunate enough to meet and spend time with many of Madonna’s incredible fans, and this new partnership will bring to fruition what so many of them have been patiently waiting for: a celebration of her groundbreaking catalogue. My partner Sara Zambreno and I are working closely with Warner Music Group to bring new life to these iconic works.”

Warner Music’s Max Lousada concluded:

“We’re honored to be forming a dynamic new partnership with an incomparable superstar whose influence on our musical and artistic landscape is immense and immutable. Madonna has changed the course of pop and dance music, while taking live performance to new heights of drama and invention. At the same time, she uses her fame to amplify some of the most important social issues and movements of our time. Constantly and fearlessly challenging convention, her four decades of music are not only an extraordinary body of work, but a playbook for creative and cultural evolution.”

Uniquely, the diva’s deal with Interscope concluded last year, and the announcement for this venture appears strictly tied to catalog material (both released and unreleased). In essence, there’s a possibility that when it comes to new music, that Madge is actually a free agent.

Could an indie spell be next on her agenda? Or is another major label venture on the cards? Time will tell. What is for sure is that the superstar songstress will continue to leave a mark on the masses for years to come.

    The Queen Of Pop doing what she does best on her birthday. Making money. Warner must know beween the old music and the new music she will make with this 3 album deal, she’s going to make a killing for them. Get it Queen, and another 100 to that 300 million sold worldwide and another Billion to that 1.23 Billion in tickets sold worldwide.

      Madonna’s a savvy business woman. Always have been & always will be. Too bad she doesn’t own her recording masters tho.

      • room319 August 16, 2021

        The only way she could achieve this type of deal is owning her masters – trademark – likeness

        She renegotiated that deal so many times…Warner is pretty much begging for one of their flagship artists to save the label

        Check the credits… after a certain point, all works delivered were licensed to Warner and Interscope

        Even savvier preempting death, thus prolonging her profitability, by NEVER dogging the industry (and a few other chess moves that shan’t be discussed here) like MJ, Whitney, Prince, and DMX did.

        She may have bought her own masters a long time ago.
