Madonna's album title, release date confirmed

Madonna's Hard Candy

Madonna has dubbed her final album of new material for her longtime Warner Bros. label 'Hard Candy,' and will release it on April 29, her publicist confirmed on Tuesday.
The album, which features such songs as 'Candy Store' and the first single 'Four Minutes,' is the follow-up to 'Confessions on a Dance Floor,' which debuted at No. 1 on the U.S. pop chart in November 2005.
The title and release date were first reported by Entertainment Weekly's Web site (, and the details were confirmed by Madonna's spokeswoman, Liz Rosenberg. Entertainment Weekly quoted Rosenberg as saying the 49-year-old singer 'loves candy.'
'Hard Candy' will be Madonna's last studio release for Warner Bros. before she begins a wide-ranging 10-year recording, touring and merchandising deal with Artist Nation, a new initiative launched by concert promoter Live Nation. Warner Bros., a unit of Warner Music Group Corp will also release a hits collection.

HARD CANDY is very Madonna I think... Sometimes she is sweet and soft, sometimes tough and alwys strong... I like it very much!!!!!!!!!!

Madonna's new album to be called "Hard Candy"??? Hey, wait a minute!! One of my favorite CD's that 'Counting Crows' came out with in January of 2003 is titled "HARD CANDY'! So, what's going on -- wonder if Madonna and Warner Bros. aren't aware that a big selling album by this same name already exists?! I can still "hear" the Counting Crows frontman, Adam Duritz, singing those first plaintive notes with these words from the CD title's song....

From "Hard Candy" Lyrics:

On certain Sundays in November
When the weather bothers me
I empty drawers of other summer's
Where my shadows used to be....

Great song, and a great album! Madonna had better go back to the 'drawing board' in the studio on this one, and think of another title for her coming album, or we might be hearing more about this thing called 'plagiarism', hmm?!
