Martin Kierszenbaum who spent some time with Natalia Kills and Madonna recording new tracks for Madonna’s new album talked about the collaboration during an interview on the Billboard.com Pop Shop Podcast.
Here’s a transcript by Madonnarama…
I’m very proud of it.
It was a real privilige to work with Madonna and Natalia Kills.
We ended up writing seven songs. We were only meant to be there with her for a couple of days. It was just me on the piano and Madonna and Natalia kind of around it. We just wrote songs the old fashioned way. Just playing the piano and singing. It was really fun.
I’m a big Madonna fan, so for me it was an honour.
I don’t know what she’s gonna use from the sessions.
She was really wonderful and so talented. It was a thrill to hear that voice that we all know, in the room, coming out of her head, right there… it really sounds like that.
I’m a big fan of it, so for me it was great.

Martin Kierszenbaum who spent some time with Natalia Kills and Madonna recording new tracks for Madonna’s new album talked about the collaboration during an interview with Larry Flick on SiriusXM.
Here’s a transcription by Madonnarama…
It was a huge honour.
Madonna invited us to come and write with her for her next project.
We just had a great time. We were supposed to be with her in the studio for a couple of days. She kindly invited us to stay a little longer, so we ended up writing a few more things.
We don’t know what’s going to end up on the album.
It was an absolute honour. It was so much fun.
Madonna is so very musical. For me, being such a big fan for so long, it was so exciting to hear her vocal in the room, right next to me, sounding exactly like all of those records we all love.
She’s a pleasure to work with, because she’s also so in tune with who she is and what she wants to sing.
It was really great collaborating with her and with Natalia [Kills].
It was one of those wonderfully musical sessions that yielded a lot of music.
She’s going to decide what she wants to do with it.
It was just a privilege to be able to contribute.
