Madonna On 'MDNA': "I Wanted It To Be Unapologetically Happy"

The 'Girl Gone Wild' singer says her latest record will make fans want to get up and dance.

Madonna has described her new album 'MDNA' is "unapologetically happy" and claims she made the record in an effort to get people to dance more.

The 'Give Me All Your Luvin' singer is due to release her twelfth album later this month and says she intentionally made the music lighthearted as a contrast from directing her film W.E. last year.

"I didn't want to do anything too serious because the film was so taxing for me on an artistic level," Madonna explained. "Plus it's fun. I think that the fans are going to love it. I can't wait to get up there and dance and sing. 

"I wanted to make an album that was unapologetically happy," the 'Music' singer told In Toronto magazine this month. "I think we all need to dance a bit more these days."

Last month it was confirmed 'Girl Gone Wild' will be the second single to be released from the album, and Madonna also previewed new track 'I'm Addicted' to fans last week.

Madonna will officially release her twelfth album 'MDNA' on 26th March.
