Madonna Timeline: Music
November 18: In a Swedish press conference, Madonna says that the Veronica Electronica remix album is no longer happening because she & William Orbit have other projects to focus on right now and she doesn’t want to go back into the studio and re-record this album. She does say that she will be “releasing a new album in a year or so.”

September: According to William Orbit’s manager Andy Kipness, Madonna has summoned Orbit into the studio once again to co-produce her new album. Originally, Madonna had booked him for January 2000 to start the new album but she changed her mind. Orbit is now rushing to finish the All Saints material he was working on, and he only has a few days left until he’s due to start work with M.
Later on, Orbit will say they started with the cover of “American Pie” which was really just an attempt to appease Rupert Everett’s request that it be included in he and Madonna’s film. After that, Orbit said what they came up with was mostly ballads which got scrapped.
On November 17, 2000, Madonna is interviewed by a Norweigan TV show that asks her how Music started:
“Well, I knew that I didn’t want to repeat myself and I wasn’t actually sure of the direction I wanted to go in, so I started working with William Orbit again – cuz we had, I thought, a really great collaboration. And after I wrote about 9 songs, I decided that there was too much of a sameness or similarity of sound as the last record. So I kind of threw out everything and started all over again. And at that point I met Mirwais and we started working together and that’s really when I found the sound that I wanted the record to be. And then I went back to William after that and sort of re-worked the stuff that we were doing.”
She also says that her engineer working on the album was raving about Da Ali G Show so she got some tapes of it and thought Sacha Baron Cohen was hilarious. She later decided to put him in the “Music” video.
End of Sept/Beginning of October: Mirwais Ahmadzai (via a friend) sends his demo to Maverick which comes across the path of Guy Oseary. A mere two weeks after sending them his demo, he is in a London studio laying down tracks with Madonna.
In an interview much later on, Mirwais says in the fall of 1999, he was finishing his album Production and Stephane Sednaoui sent the record and video for “Disco Science” to Maverick Records. Guy Oseary called a few days later and asked for some additional material, so Mirwais obliged with several tracks from Production. Then, he got a phone call from Madonna and she loved them both. Madonna sent Sednaoui to ask Mirwais if he wanted to work on “one or two” tracks for her album.
October 5: Madonna will reunite with William Orbit when she flies to London in two weeks’ time to finish her new album. William Orbit has a number of songs ready for the record which is due out next year. Madonna and Orbit have also been collaberating on the soundtrack to The Next Best Thing.
The two are rumored to have recently completed a song for the soundtrack called “The Best Thing” [they probably mean "Time Stood Still" because it has the title in its chorus] at a NYC sound studio, the rest of her studio album will be done in London.
October 17: Madonna and Lola arrive in London today. She’s in London to complete her new album. (MLVC Mailing List)
October 20: Madonna begins recording at SARM Studios in London. Mark “Spike” Stent also gets involved with the album production this month. (MLVC Mailing List)
October 21: Contrary to reports that Madonna is doing the soundtrack for The Next Big Thing, her press office indicates she will actually only be doing one or two songs for that project. In the meantime, she is working on the follow-up to her hugely successful foray into the electronica mainstream, Ray of Light. British DJ SASHA, who did remix work on the material girl’s last effort, is said to be working on ideas for her to listen to …(Rolling Stone, 10/21/1999)
November 6: William Orbit is currently working on a second album with the Material Girl – and despite the gruelling work schedule he’s up for another. He explained: “I know the ropes now. I wouldn’t rule out a third one, but let’s see how this one does.” But he’s not lacking in confidence: “When I first heard Madonna singing some of the things she’s singing on this album I got shivers because I can hear these songs being covered and being played everywhere for decades.” (Yahoo News)
November 8: BT is travelling to the UK on Wednesday or Thursday of this week to meet up with Sasha. Sasha is working on a new track for the upcoming Madonna CD and BT is going to give him a hand. No word on whether he’ll be credited. (MLVC List)
November 19: Madonna was back in New York City this week to finish mixing her new album and some lyrical content. She was seen momentarily at her brother’s eatery ORIONT on Wednesday, November 17, chatting with friends. (Liz Smith’s column, I think)
NOTE: Madonna will later mention in an interview to promote Music, that she wrote the verse “Music makes the bourgeoisie and the rebel” after seeing Sting in concert (and from a balcony she could see the rich and less rich in the audience all brought together by music). Sting was performing at the Beacon Theatre in NYC on Nov. 16-21 this week so she could’ve seen him there. He also did one show on Nov. 11 at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in NYC. However, this is purely speculative on my part. She could’ve seen him long ago and written about it in a journal too.
November 23: The reason Orbit is in town, away from his home in L.A.’s leafy Brentwood, is because he’s working with Madonna on her new album in west London’s SARM Studios. Nine tracks have been recorded in four weeks so far (“we’ve definitely got another Ray Of Light on there”) with Orbit at the controls, though Madonna is also working with trip-hoppers Alpha and “a French guy called Mirwais”. It’s all going so well, in fact, that Orbit has cancelled a holiday in Majorca and condensed his press duty into a four-day burst just so the pair can further explore their “inspirational reciprocity” and finish the album. It’s pencilled in for a springtime release next year. Chances are, it’ll be quite a big record.
Alpha is on Massive Attack’s label, Melankolic, information cannot be found on Mirwais, other than he was introduced to Madonna by French photographer Stephane Sednaoui. (MLVC Mailing List)
December: Madonna is finalizing the soundtrack to The Next Best Thing around this time and she includes a cut by Brit triphop group Mandalay called “This Life” which is co-produced by one Guy Sigsworth…
December 23: DJ SASHA working with Madonna: Madonna is currently in London working with British house DJ Sasha and producer William Orbit on the follow up to her hugely successful Ray Of Light album. A source close to Sasha confirmed that he is writing material for the album, though it is not known how many tracks he will collaborate with Madonna on.
“It’s mad,” said the insider. “Madonna’s next album is definitely going to have a progressive house feel to it.”
Sasha, who has in the past completed remixes for Madonna, is a highly respected DJ on the global progressive house scene and has a residency at New York’s famous Twilo nightclub. Fellow Brit Orbit produced Ray Of Light which was Madonna’s most commercially successful album since the 20 million selling Like A Virgin.
Orbit, who is also in the studio with Madonna, said: “She is much more expeditious than anyone I’ve worked with. She drives things at a very fast pace. We’ve been slamming tracks down – we might even ace the last LP. I’m inspired.” (MLVC List)
December 25: In an interview published later on, Joe Henry says that today – Christmas 1999 – Madonna emails him and says she has recorded his song “Stop” for her album. The track was sent to Madonna originally by her sister who is married to Joe.
February 2: Madonna tells Entertainment Weekly that she will “probably not” be at this month’s Grammy Awards (on Feb. 23) – she is up for two trophies for “Beautiful Stranger.” Instead, she’ll be in London finishing up her album.
She says the new album is “three-fourths complete” and admits she doesn’t know quite how to describe it:
“People always ask me, and I don’t have a clue,” she says. “But if you held a gun to my head and said describe it, it’s electronic. It’s very soulful, very melodic, and very minimalist. Does that help?”
“It’s quite a little edgier than Ray of Light. It’s almost like we started off with a lot of slow ballad songs and she’s started to kind of chuck ‘em out in favor of more edgy tracks. The album is getting more kind of fast, very European sounding, very English and French sounding, naturally, ’cause everybody working on it apart from her is English or French. Pretty exciting, actually. It’s like a follow-up for Ray of Light without stopping still. It’s perfect.”
February 9: The ICON website says the new album will be out in the summer of 2000!
mid to late February: This is pure speculation, but I suspect Madonna wrote and recorded “What It Feels Like For a Girl” around this time. One reason is because she mentioned she was pregnant and hadn’t informed the media yet (see below) and another is because she was back in London around this time to finish her album and I am pretty sure she recorded with Guy Sigsworth while in London.
Madonna will say in the March 2001 Interview magazine (about “What It Feels Like For A Girl”):
“I wrote it kind of halfway through the album, when I was pregnant and hiding it from the world. It was a really tumultuous period in my life. I was not in a terribly stable relationship at that point, and part of the reason was because we both lived in different countries. So, it was a combination of that, and also just feeling incredibly vulnerable that inspired that song.”
February 29: In an interview with Britian’s Mixmag, Madonna reveals her current musical muses:
I really like the soundtrack to The Beach – Orbital are on that, of course. Around the house we’re always dancing to Moby or Leftfield or Daft Punk, stuff like that. And Mr Scruff I love, that weird little album ['Keep It Unreal'] that’s got so much personality. European or British dance music is by far the best in that area just now and I play it all the time. Trancey stuff, stuff with soul, anything with an idea and some spirit. One of the guys I’m working with just now, Mirwais, we’re always playing his record. He’s the future, Mirwais. I loved his demo and so naturally I immediately felt I had to have him on my record before anyone else heard him.
ON HER CURRENT FAVORITE DJ’s: I love, love Sasha [she pronounces his name the American way: Sar-sha]. I like the way he approaches sound, as something you can move and change any way you want. Victor Calderone is great too. Have you ever heard Moby DJ at a party? He is damn good. I did a little work with Sasha here while I was working with William. We all got together but what we did never actually turned into a song, which is the danger of this way of working. So it’s in the vaults and who knows what’s going to happen to it? He is very talented, though.
LATER ON: An instrumental from Sasha’s sessions with Madonna in 1999 would later become the track “Wavy Gravy” for his 2002 album Airdrawndagger.
In an interview with Britian’s Dotmusic, Orbit says there are 16-17 tracks total and that some will be going into the vault, including Sasha’s work. He thinks about 10 tracks will make the cut as Madonna wants a “tighter, more cohesive album.” He says it is being mixed right now and that the tracks represent a number of styles.
March 12: Madonna and Mirwais have co-written and co-produced a song called “Paradise (Not for Me).” The track will appear on Mirwais’ new album, Production (Naive), due in late April, it may (or may not) also appear on Madonna’s new album. On the track, Madonna sings some of the lyrics in French. (MLVC List)
Later, this information will reveal itself in interviews that I do not have sources for: Madonna says this is the first song they probably did together, and the second is “Music.” She says “Music” set the tone for the rest of the album.
Mirwais says the first song they did was “Impressive Instant” because it was the most “complete” demo he had originally sent to Madonna in the first batch of songs. He says the track was an instrumental that was never intended to be included on Production but Madonna had ideas for it lyrically, so he had her sing them to him soon after they met in London (at SARM Studios) for the first time in October 1999. “Paradise” was also a fully formed track when Mirwais sent it to Madonna. “Those are live strings, arranged by Cyril Morin,” he says. “This track was originally for my own album, Production. When she listened to my tracks, she absolutely wanted to sing this one. My only problem was that I wanted to include it on my own album. So it’s on both my album and hers! The only difference is I did a two-bar edit on my version.”
“I Deserve It” was recorded with an old German microphone from the 1930’s – which was Mark “Spike” Stent’s idea.
March 16: From French VSD Magazine Interview with Madonna: “Wait till you hear the new album I’m preparing with Mirwais. He’s a producer and a composer. The music will be very different from everything I’ve done before. Without flourishes, more direct, reduced to its plain exp?ression. Emotion is on the surface, naked.”
March 27: Jonas Akerlund tells a Swedish newspaper that he has been tapped to direct Madonna’s next music video. He says they will do it “very soon” since she is pregnant. The song will be the first single from her new album – it is also the title track: MUSIC. He says the video will have a “retro-modern theme” and adds, “It’s a great song.”
March 30: Madonna and William Orbit recently composed the opening theme music to the ABC series Wonderland. The series is written and directed by one of Madonna’s ex-boyfriends, Peter Berg.
March 31: World Exclusive: MADONNA GOES UNDERGROUND (MUZAK Magazine)
Madonna’s new album has been described as “underground” and “gothic” by a source close to everyone’s favorite material girl. Acclaimed French producer Mirwais Ahmadzai has worked on three tracks so far and former producer William Orbit has produced a fourth. The album–untitled as yet–is pencilled in for a September release on Maverick.
“Mirwais produced three tracks so far,” our source told us. “The fourth is an acoustic track with a signature William Orbit production. They’re both working on additional songs.”
Muzik’s source was played the tracks by Madonna’s manager in L.A. late Last month. “The tracks with Mirwais have a distinct French feel,” he revealed.
“They have looped, processed vocals and a stuttered signature kick. It seems a return to a darker, more underground feel, a little like the sound she explored on ‘Erotica’. “Is it pop? Only by virtue of being Madonna!” he continued. “It really tests the current state of pop. It’s more sexually charged and underground. She’s the master of reinvention so it’s no wonder that she’s doing it again. I got a real gothic vibe out of the tracks.”
Reports in the press suggest that Madonna had planned to make a Progressive house album. This no longer appears to be the case. “I know that she did a track with Sasha but I think that he’s going to hold onto it now,”
Muzik’s source said. “I don’t want to put Sasha into a box but maybe she wanted to move away from that uplifting sound.”
“The good thing about Madonna is that she’s very much a producer herself,” he explained. “She brings out the best in those around her and prompts them to elevate her game. ‘American Pie’ won’t be on the album, neither will “Time Stood Still’ which is William and Madonna at their best.” Both tracks are taken from the soundtrack to The Next Best Thing which is out now on Maverick.
Rae & Christian, Tom Middleton, Zero 7, Eric Kupper, and Wamdue Kid Chris Brann are among the names who have been approached to remix future singles. “I think Rae & Christian are ready for this,” said Muzik’s source. “I love their British twist on Hip Hop.”
April 3: The OMFC (Official Madonna Fan Club) website now says the album will be released in September.
April 9: L.A. Times Article: Madonna’s New French Accent
The singer hires Paris-based Mirwais to produce her next album and signs him to her Maverick label too.
Meet Madonna’s new man. Not Guy Ritchie, the English film director with whom she’s having her second child, but Mirwais, a Paris-based musician with whom she’s producing much of the music for her next album.
Richie was introduced to the singer by Sting and his wife, Trudie Styler. Mirwais, who goes by just the one name, was more of a blind date.
The 39-year-old, formerly of the French group Taxi Girl, contacted Madonna’s Maverick Records late last year looking to get signed as an artist, not to produce the star.
“He sent a demo tape to Maverick with four tracks,” says Caresse Norman, Madonna’s manager. “Madonna heard it and went insane. Two weeks later they were in the studio together.”
“This is not a repudiation of William Orbit, who co-produced most of 1998’s electronica-infused Ray of Light and last year’s “Austin Powers’ single “Beautiful Stranger.” Orbit returned to do three songs on the new album but has also been focusing on several other projects, including his own recent “Pieces in a Modern Style” album of electronic interpretations of classical pieces. And Madonna, Norman notes, has never been one to sit still stylistically.
“This is taking Ray of Light to the next level,” Norman says. ‘It’s not as electronic. It’s funky, with a pop edge to it. I have heard most of it a lot, and it’s something I never get sick of. And there’s one song that brings me to tears.”
How much does Madonna like Mirwais? In addition to hiring him to produce, she signed him as an artist to Maverick and will also share a song with him. [this data is not correct, Mirwais was signed to a Sony label and was never on Maverick] It will be on both Madonna’s album and his debut, which will be released April 18 outside North America and then here, after the expected late September release of the Madonna set.
When not finding partners for herself, Madonna seems to have a knack for matchmaking. Her latest move was to hook up k.d. lang with Damian LeGassick, introducing the two at a party last year. A protege of Orbit, LeGassick has co-produced Invincible Summer, k.d. lang’s first album since 1997’s Drag, due June 21.
NOTE: Damian LeGassick co-wrote Madonna’s “Gone” track for this album.
April 10-13: Madonna and Jean Baptiste Mondino shoot the album cover for Music in Los Angeles.
Later: Jean-Baptiste Mondino on Music’s Theme (August 15, 2000):
Jean-Baptiste Mondino, the world-renowned photographer who was called upon to capture Madonna’s Music portfolio in April, was interviewed on CNN Style, where he said that it was his idea to have the cowboy theme to Madonna’s new album. “(Madonna) wasn’t sure at first,” he said. “But I told her that if she didn’t like it I won’t charge her. But she loved the final result!” When asked if he’s helmed to direct any videos for the MUSIC album, he replied, “I’m honoured to photograph a Madonna album, I’ve done few of her videos before so that is already accomplished.”
April 14-16: “Music” – Madonna and Jonas Akerlund filmed the video in L.A. with Ali G., Niki Haris and Debbi Mazar. The video is currently scheduled to debut at the MTV VMA pre-show in September (the month the new album is due to drop). Madonna goes “gangsta” in the video and wears a fur coat and rapper medallion around her neck – Madonna herself describes it as “70’s ghetto-fabulous.” Album promotion will begin in August.
April 15: Sasha was quoted in the UK dance mags earlier this year saying that his work with Madonna (classed as progressive trance) doesn’t fit in with the other producers’ work and will not be on the album. He said there were no plans to release it, although he hoped that it would be released sometime. Sasha said in Mixmag that they didn’t even get to record vocals for the track.
April 29: From a Dotmusic interview with Mirwais:
French house producer Mirwais revealed details of two of the tracks on Madonna’s forthcoming follow-up to ‘Ray Of Light’ and hinted at the simple title, ‘Music’.
“I was free to work but within her limits,” he says. “When you work with someone – it doesn’t matter if it’s Madonna or people I’ve worked with in the past – you have to respect them. When she didn’t agree with me I’d try to find a compromise.”
The sound of the Mirwais -produced tracks on the album will clearly be driven by the 39-year-old’s sparse electronic funk, a sound that will become familiar when his solo release ‘Disco Science’ hits the charts in a couple of weeks. “I worked on six tracks,” he explains. “My favourites are the last two tracks we did. One is called “I Deserve It” and it’s the most simple track on there and the one I prefer. The biggest surprise will be the simplicity.”
Speculation about the title of the album has been rife with many sources suggesting that it will simply be called “Music.” Mirwais is caught off guard: “I don’t know, it could change. A lot of people have said that because of one track we did called “Music.” You’ll have to ask Madonna.”
May 1: Spoof rapper Ali G has won himself a starring role in Madonna’s latest pop video, it is reported. He was flown to Hollywood to film the video to “Music,” the title track from the pop queen’s new album, according to the Observer newspaper. Madonna is said to have become a fan after a friend sent her a copy of his Christmas special, Ali G, Innit.
“She watched the tape and thought he was brilliant – the Peter Sellers of our generation,” her manager, Caresse Norman, told the Observer.
“We came up with the video idea, and she thought he would be great in it.”
Ali G – Cambridge graduate Sacha Baron Cohen in real life – is said to appear in the video wearing his trademark yellow track suit and wraparound sunglasses.
The details are not being revealed, but Ali G is said to feature at the centre of a “strong storyline”.
He is said not to contribute musically to the video.
May 3: Victor Calderone claims he has heard the album and it is “incredible.” He says it is mostly done with Mirwais, and William Orbit’s contribution is limited. Calderone says that he sent “4 or 5” tracks to her for vocals for this project but they do not appear on the album. He doesn’t know what she will do with them.
May 28: “Music” shows up on Napster. Lyrics are reprinted immediately all over the Web.
June 8: Liz R. confirms that Groove Armada have done a remix of “Music.”
June 9: The Official Madonna Fan Club web page says the second single will be called “What It Feels Like (For a Girl)” after the lead single: “Music.” The album is due sometime in September 2000. Madonna reveals her ghetto-cowboy look and says the video for the lead single is due in August.
LATER: Madonna tells an interviewer more about this song:
“What It Feels Like (For A Girl)”:
I wrote it kind of halfway through the album, when I was pregnant and hiding it from the world. It was a really tumultuous period in my life. I was not in a terribly stable relationship at that point, and part of the reason was because we both lived in different countries. I just lived in limbo from every angle you could imagine, and I think that is also part of where that song came from, a big part of it. Then the other thing was – – it’s probably the more obvious thing – that you go through life, I mean our generation certainly has been encouraged to grab life by the balls, be super-independent, get a great education, follow our dreams, kick ass, all that stuff, and I feel like I woke up one day holding the golden ring and realized that smart, sassy girls who accomplish a lot and have their own cash and are independent are really frightening to men. I felt like, “Why didn’t somebody tell me? Why didn’t somebody warn me?” And that’s also what that song is about – swallowing that bitter pill. So, it was a combination of that, and also just feeling incredibly vulnerable that inspired that song.

“Nobody’s Perfect” is electro-funk
“Don’t Tell Me’ is souful
“What It Feels Like For A Girl” is the second single
“Paradise” is melodramatic
“Gone” was co-written with Damian LeGlassik and Nicola Young and features electronic and acoustic elements.

Madonna’s recently released track “Music” is a worldwide phenomenon. In the USA, it tops Billboard’s Top 100, Dance and Club Play charts. It’s #1 in fourteen other countries including Italy, Canada, France, Spain, Australia, Mexico, Greece and Latvia. The album of the same title debuts in stores Tuesday, September 19 with advance orders of over 5 million copies throughout the world. Music is Madonna’s fourteenth album; all thirteen of its predecessors have achieved multi-platinum sales status.
Madonna comments on Music: “Some of the songs reflect my melancholic and thoughtful side, while others just take the plunge right into reckless abandon. I didn’t put limits on myself, other than to make sure there was plenty of club-oriented, dance-friendly material, because I enjoy that myself.”
