It’s been more than three years since Madonna dropped new music.

But the Material Girl recently confirmed that once she’s through with her current promo run for her movie W.E., she’d be hitting the studio to record.

According to Reuters, Madonna’s only done “a little bit of work” on the new project so far, spending time in the studio with Ray of Light producer William Orbit and French DJ Martin Solveig (a.k.a. Monsieur “Hello”). She hopes to release a first single by the end of the winter, with an album out by spring.

Her last release, 2008’s Hard Candy, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart on the back of her Timbaland-produced hit single “4 Minutes.”

What do you think Madge’s next album will sound like? What are you hoping for? Let us know in the comments below.
