Madonna's Music Leaked Online

Title track of Material Girl's new album released via fan sites and Napster.

MTV News Online

The Internet is alive with the sound of Madonna's Music, but a bit prematurely.

Madonna's upcoming album isn't set to be released until late September or early October, but snippets of the title track, "Music," ranging from 30 seconds to three minutes, were leaked into cyberspace via fan sites and Napster over Memorial Day weekend.

"The music was stolen and was not intended for release for several months," Madonna's manager, Caresse Norman, said in a statement Wednesday. "It is still a work in progress. Ultimately, those sites that offered a download of Madonna's music are violating her rights as an artist."

"The music was stolen." — Caresse Norman, Madonna's manager

Warner Bros. Records, the parent of Madonna's Maverick Recording Company, released a far sterner statement, saying, "any site that does not remove our copyrighted material runs the risk of civil and criminal prosecution."

"Music," a throbbing, funked-up dance track, was co-produced by Madonna and French-Afghani club artist Mirwais, who shares production duties on the album with William Orbit, who co-produced Madonna's 1998 Grammy-winning album, Ray of Light. Mirwais is negotiating with a U.S. record label to distribute his UK debut album, Production, which features Madonna on the track "Paradise (But Not for Me)."
