Madonna has finally revealed that her new album title is to be ‘Hard Candy’ and that it will be released on April 28.

The album is the last album the singer has had to deliver to her former record company Warner Bros, as she has now signed a ten-year all-encompasing tour and recording deal with promotors Live Nation.

The first single, ‘Four Minutes’ has been co-written by pop singer Justin Timberlake and is expected to be released before ‘Hard Candy’.

Track titles leaked so far on various music sites including Billboard and Rolling Stone include: ‘Candy Store’ and ‘The Beat Goes On’ which Pharrell Williams is reported to have collaborated on.

Other tracks are ‘Even The Devil Wouldn’t Recognise You’, ‘Miles Away’ and ‘Heartbeat.’

The album release comes a month after the veteran singer is inducted into the US Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 10.

Other inductees this year include Leonard Cohen, John Mellencamp and the Dave Clark Five.
