LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Madonna’s record label has denied reports that her new album will be called “Licorice” and will come out in late April.
Billboard.com reported that Sirius Satellite Radio host Larry Flick, a former Billboard editor, announced the title and release date on his “OutQ” show Thursday.
“Sirius does not know what they are talking about,” Warner Bros, spokeswoman Liz Rosenberg said in an email to Reuters. “Wrong title. Release date wrong etc.”
Flick reportedly aired two songs from the album, “Candy Shop” and “The Beat Goes On,” both of which leaked online earlier this year.
The new album will be Madonna’s last release of new material for Warner Bros. before she begins a wide-ranging 10-year deal with Artist Nation, a new initiative launched by concert promoter Live Nation. Warner Bros. will also release a hits collection.
