If they don’t include special demos and unreleased songs, I really don’t see the point in these special curations. They’re not just gonna tack on old remixes and call it a day when we’re about to get 50 remastered remixes of her biggest hits. The part she’s curating is probably the unreleased/demos. Also seeing the success of Taylor Swift’s vault songs I bet they’d wanna follow something similar

I guess so, even If she wasn't that keen on it, Warner surely would push for unreleased stuff. Good news I guess is she DOES seem keen on the idea, at least she was playing the old Emmy demos on Instagram and bopping to them. ^^

Also, I think she's reworking some old songs with new artists, too, to include remixes/new versions too on the reissues. But let's see.

Snippet from new Financial Times Article


This month, the best-selling solo female artist of all time celebrates her longevity with the release of Finally Enough Love: 50 Number Ones, a career-spanning collection including previously unreleased remixes of her dance floor hits. After that, she will reissue deluxe editions of 17 of her albums — including Like a Virgin, True Blue, and Like a Prayer — alongside singles, soundtrack recordings, live albums, and compilations. John Earls of Classic Pop magazine argues that this capitulation to the lucrative nostalgia market, “after assiduously avoiding it for so long, is her biggest acknowledgment of pop mortality’

This is just a rehash of the press release from last August:

”This partnership marks the revitalization of a decades-long relationship with Warner that began with the release of Madonna’s debut single in 1982. The deal encompasses her entire Sire/Maverick/Warner catalog, including global smash albums such as Madonna, Like a Virgin, True Blue, Like a Prayer, and Ray of Light. It also includes her three most recent studio albums, MDNA, Rebel Heart, and Madame X, which will join the Warner catalog beginning in 2025. All in all, the new pact includes 17 studio albums plus singles, soundtrack recordings, live albums, and compilations.”

I’m curious if they twisted that from the original statement or Warner gave them that new statement because this implies they’re reissuing every album

Even though I would live Erotica first, it would make no sense at all. You’d want to start with a bang (ie one of the most commercially successful albums), not the most obscure of them all that almost killed her career. I would keep expectations realistic and with a commercial point of view, since this is happening to make them money

Keyword: 17.

its present in both, and both implies that everything will see a release.

BUT

the original press release states:

”For the first time, Madonna will personally curate expansive deluxe editions for many of her landmark albums, as well as introduce unique releases for special events, and much more.”

”many” doesn’t not mean “all.”

So my understanding after all of this is they’re reissuing all 17 of her studio albums but only she is curating a certain amount of those albums. 
 

If this is true, It sounds like each album will get demos or unreleased songs tagged on but she is doing something special with those subset of albums they decide are landmark

Also consider that, as I’ve said in a previous post, they can package multiple albums in a box with demos and extras. It doesn’t have to be a curated release for a single record. It can be for a set

True, but I'd be so disappointed if they go that way.

Time will tell. Hopefully there will be a pre-order for the first "real" Super Deluxe Edition in the fall.

I think every album will be re-issued, but the ones that aren't considered "landmark" will maybe just get a bonus disc of remixes and demos, or something like that.

I still think the first album should be the first release - it should be in chronological order imo plus it’s the 40th  anniversary of everybody which the press announcement mentioned both times - im not sure what unreleased songs there would be from this era though ? Maybe spotlight or some early versions of LAV songs ? 🤔

For the first album, it could be a release similar to the True Blue anniversary edition (ie the original album + some remixes). I guess Ain't No Big Deal is a no brainer on that reissue too. They could also add Sidewalk Talk. Maybe a solo version?

I actually don't think this will have the pre-fame demos but maybe we'll be surprised? The Bray demos could have been cool but they were all already on Pre-Madonna as far as I know so I don't know if they would re-appear here.

For the order of release, I really have no clue. I would have liked to see the reissues being released chronologically but I guess they will follow anniversaries.

I personally would love to have as many previously unreleased tracks as possible but i don't want to set my expectations super high and be disappointed afterwards... The rare released tracks (Supernatural, Has to Be...) seem to be very likely, I'd actually be shocked if they're not included. MAYBE we'll have some completed unreleased tracks as well like Liquid Love and Across the Sky, but I don't see her officially release Score for example.

they are going to have to make it feel special like Finally enough Love or like Blondie just did where there are MEGA unreleased artifacts, included. if there is nothing but remastered then i want a picture disc yes i know that they don't sound great but there needs to be a Reason to buy it. i have high expectations TBH i am super excited

I don't know why it can't include the Bray demos. That 4 track demo tape was very instrumental in getting that contract at Sire. It's really what started it all. Plus there's more solo stuff that she did with Bray that didn't get released on Pre-Madonna, including "I Want You" (completely different than the Emmy song) and "Social Butterfly."

i want the demos we already have and .... More New ones we haven't heard!!! and i am guessing that may be where the disappointment starts. i actually like "Score" in a way. "Take a day too" so put all of those on there and surprise us with more. i LOVED it when Garbage released Demo upon demo even if i only listed to them a handful of times digitally  it is sonice to have releases that just Go There and put out bonuses we never even heard of before.

When it’s albums we already have a zillion leaks from I would definitely not expect the world. She probably still hates that all those early half finished versions are out there.
