Madonna has announced that her 14th album will be released on the 14th of June.

Madame X, has been influenced creatively by time spent living in the Portuguese capital Lisbon, and is her first album in four years.

Made up of 15 songs, the album takes its influence from Latin music and will see the 60-year-old pop star singing in Portuguese, Spanish and English. Madame X was recorded over 18 months between Lisbon, London, New York and Los Angeles and sees the pop veteran adopting the guise of the titular character.

“Lisbon is where my record was born,” Madonna said in a statement. “I found my tribe there and a magical world of incredible musicians that reinforced my belief that music across the world is truly all connected and is the soul of the universe.”
