Diplo gives new details on Madonna’s upcoming album

Diplo is featured on this week’s cover of Billboard magazine and talks about his collaboration with Madonna…

Diplo has joined Madonna for three studio sessions so far…

One [song] is super weird. Late one night in the studio we got a little bit drunk and she improvised a little hook and we made a song out of it. I think it’s going to be a breakthrough if she can manage to get everything together and get it out properly.

One of the in-the-works Madonna tracks has unwittingly evolved into a big pop record…

That song is on like version 20. It went from a piano ballad to a ‘Turn Down for What’-style song, which I didn’t like. Now it’s somewhere in the middle.

Ariel Rechtshaid and MNEK are also involved. Rechtshaid, who has collaborated with Vampire Weekend and Sky Ferreira, and MNEK, the London songwriter who worked on Disclosure’s album, have gone into the studio to work out the verses of a song that Madonna has taken a shine to. Rechtshaid has joined Diplo and Madonna for their studio sessions.

What does Madonna drink when she gets drunk in the studio?

Rosé. It was nice. I don’t think she really drinks, either.

Madonna invited Diplo to her Oscar party… but he couldn’t make it. Still, the pair began texting, and Diplo sent Madonna over some music. Madge took the production more seriously than Diplo could have imagined.
He added…

She wrote me back like a 20-page text, notes about all these songs.
