Madonna has revealed that her new album will be called Madame X in a cryptic video, in which she introduced her alter-ego for the new era – Madam X, a secret agent who travels across the world and changes identities, fights with injustice and brings light to the dark places. “She is a dancer, a professor, a head of state, a housekeeper, an equestrian, a prisoner, a student, a mother, a child, a teacher, a nun, a singer, a saint, a whore, and a spy,” Madonna says of the new persona. The video comes after she dropped various hints on social media in recent weeks about the upcoming project. Madonna shared the video on Instagram with the caption: “Welcome to the World of Madame X.” She posted a video of herself playing the guitar with no sound, encouraging fans to guess what song Madame X was playing. She also posted a series of images on Instagram that form a letter X when viewed together.
