Today in Madonna History: August 16, 2021

On August 16 2021, Madonna re-signed with Warner Bros. Records, the label controlling the bulk of her catalogue of music. This follows a thirteen-year period that essentially saw Madonna releasing her new music independently with distribution through Interscope Records, via her 360 deal with Live Nation. She retained the rights to the masters of the three albums released since her departure from Warner, and the new deal sees licensing rights for these albums revert to Warner in 2025.

Also announced are plans for Warner Rhino to reissue Madonna’s albums as deluxe editions – something fans have long requested and is frankly long overdue considering her stature and influence on popular music over the past 39 years, not to mention the wealth of unavailable and unreleased material in the vault.

Congrats to Madonna and Guy Oseary for recognizing the value and support that Warner has consistently brought to Madonna’s recording career; having all of her recorded works on the same label is as much a score for fans as it is for both Madonna and Warner Bros.
