madonna small Madonna Signs Three Album Deal with Universal/InterscopeThe cover girl is back & working on new material with a new label.

Madonna recently signed a three album deal with Universal Music Group’s Interscope for $3 million. The new contract is in addition to  her ongoing 10 year contract with Live Nation (which she signed in 2007; potentially worth as much as $100 million).  Madonna joins existing Interscope artists including Lady GagaP Diddy and 50 Cent.

Live Nation CEO Irving Azoff originally mentioned in Feburary that a marger could happen for the star sometime later in the year. ”Live Nation, prior to the merger, entered into some of these all-rights deals, so there are certain artists, Madonna being one of them, that there is a recorded-music strategy,” Azoff said. “Once she gets the album recorded, we’ll sit down with her and her manager, Guy Oseary, and figure out what’s best for the record. It has to start with the music.”

December 6, 2011

December 6th marks the release of Amy Winehouse‘s posthumous album “Lioness: Hidden Treasures”.

Mitch Winehouse, Amy’s father stated, “The family view was nothing was going to go out unless it was comparable to ‘Frank’ or ‘Back To Black’. If it wasn’t as good as that then we wouldn’t have allowed it to go out.”

So while it was admittedly hard for the family to listen to the album, they gave their permission for the LP to be put out after deciding it was “comparable” to her previous studio albums, which included 2003′s ‘Frank’ and 2005′s ‘Back To Black’. page go Amy Winehouses Lioness: Hidden Treasures Released Today Continue reading Amy Winehouse’s “Lioness: Hidden Treasures” Released Today »
