In an interview, the pop songstress stressed the importance of other cultures in her music-making, “I’ve just met lots of really amazing musicians, and I’ve ended up working with a lot of these musicians on my new record, so Lisbon has influenced my music and my work,” to wit she added “How could it not? I don’t see how I could have gone through that year without being informed by all this input of culture.”

Madonna stated her son’s decision to pursue being a professional soccer player lit a creative spark in her which, “will be collected in an album that will be released by the end of the year.” This will follow Rebel Heart, her most recent album from 2015 and released by Boy Toy Inc. and Interscope Records.
