For a while, we'd known that Madonna and Diplo were working on some material for her forthcoming thirteenth studio album, including word that a massive Diplo x Madonna x SOPHIE x Nicki Minaj collaboration was sitting somewhere. Last week, six early demos from the album leaked to the Internets—a situation Madonna said felt like "artistic rape"—but she took the high road, officially releasing six tracks from the album, now titled Rebel Heart. Within those leaks were three Diplo-produced tracks: the aforementioned Nicki Minaj x SOPHIE track "Bitch, I'm Madonna," "Unapologetic Bitch," and this cut, "Living For Love." Unsurprisingly, this is a solid combination of bass-driven club beats from Diplo with the poppy tendencies that have made Madonna a force within the music scene for decades. "Living For Love" let's Madonna's voice soar, but has a snappy house vibe that's definitely the rage for those who are waning on the "EDM sound," whatever that is.
Rebel Heart isn't due out until March 10, 2015, but you can grab "Living For Love" and the other five tracks via iTunes today.
