[ 25.03.2003 ] - Press release regarding «American Life» album


Below you can find press release regarding «American Life» album, published by Warner Bros. Records on March 11th, 2003:

«A new Madonna album, «American Life», has been set for a worldwide release on April 22nd, it was announced today by Warner Bros. Records. The enduring icon's first new collection of original material since 2000's multi-platinum smash «Music», «American Life» is being hailed as Madonna's most accomplished, original and intensely personal album to date; a resonant and revealing emotional journey that marks a new highpoint in a career that has for all time redefined the expressive potential of contemporary music.

Recorded over a full year in London and Los Angeles, «American Life», the artist's tenth studio album, features eleven new Madonna compositions, including the title track and debut single, which ships to radio March 25th.

«All of these songs reflect my current state of mind. I feel like I have just woken up out of a dream. They range from dismay and anger to joy and certainty. Hopefully, I have taken the personal and made it universal,» stated Madonna regarding her new album which she wrote and produced with Mirwais Ahmadzai with whom she also collaborated on her previous release «Music».

The «American Life» CD includes the title track, as well as the following songs: «Hollywood», «I'm So Stupid», «Love Profusion», «Nobody Knows Me», «Nothing Fails», «Intervention», «X-Static Process», «Mother & Father», «Easy Ride» and «Die Another Day», the hit theme song from the James Bond film of the same name.

The «American Life» single is also the subject of a brilliant new video from the pioneering multi-media visionary, an artist who single handedly invented the short music film medium. In a stunning collaboration with director Jonas Akerlund, «American Life» expresses a panoramic view of our culture and looming war through the view of a female superhero portrayed by Madonna set against a backdrop of current cultural obsessions. It's a penetrating examination of our national psyche. The video is scheduled to air the first week in April.

Remixes of the «American Life» single by, among others, mega-hot hip hop diva Missy Elliott, Peter Rauhofer, Felix da Housecat and Maverick Records artist Paul Oakenfold will be available in various configurations over the next several months.

An extensive schedule of appearances, performances and special events has been set in conjunction with the release of «American Life» including an appearance on an episode of the hit NBC-TV comedy «Will And Grace».

One of the most original and innovative artists of the modern era, Madonna has sold hundreds of millions of albums, topped charts across two decades, created an enormously influential body of work in video and film and stood at the forefront of socially conscious artists worldwide. With «American Life», Madonna has once again reached deeply into her own life as the source and substance of her extraordinary artistry.»
