She has given her fans a sense of what her new tunes may sound like via some tantalising social media posts, reports forbes.com.
The name seems to refer to a character, or perhaps an alter ego that Madonna has created, who she describes as "a secret agent / travelling around the world / changing identities / fighting for freedom / bringing light to dark places".
Madonna then shares a list of descriptions that seem to fit this Madame X character, including calling her "a cha cha instructor, a professor, a head of state, a housekeeper, an equestrian, a prisoner, a student, a teacher, a nun, a cabaret singer, a saint and a prostitute".
The first list of descriptors was posted on April 13, while a handful of videos, including the one where she shares that Madame X is indeed the name of what will be her next full-length, went up on April 14.
The visual is soundtracked by what is likely a song featured on the album, where Madonna sings: "The thing that hurts the most / is that I wasn't lost," with autotune added for special effect.
