First, the material girl revealed some exciting news that her upcoming new album is to be released in March of 2012 and then she acknowledged that she is in fact performing as the headliner for Super Bowl XLIV on February 5th. And late last week, the 2011 Nominations for the Golden Globes were announced. And Madonna was named as a nominee for Best Song for her new song “Masterpiece” which is featured in her directorial debut W.E. that is to be released in the US on February 10th, 2012. Madonna was nominated with the co-writers of “Masterpiece” including Julie Frost and Jimmy Harry and faces some stiff competition from “Hello Hello” (Elton John, Gnomeo and Juliet), “The Keeper” (Chris Cornell, Machine Gun Preacher), “Lay Your Head Down” (Brian Byrne and Glen Close, Albert Nobbs), and “The Living Proof” (Thomas Newman, Mary J. Blige, Harvey Mason, and Damon Thomas, The Help). Madonna won the Golden Globe for Best Actress in 1997 for her 1996 performance as Eva Peron in EVITA and Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice took home the honor that year for Best Song for “You Must Love Me.” EVITA also won the Coveted Golden Globe for Best Picture (Musical or Comedy) that year as well. The 2011 Golden Globe winners will be announced on NBC at 8pm on January 16th, 2012. Good luck Madonna! While the single, which will feature a full orchestra accompaniment, is yet to be released, take an early listen to “Masterpiece” below:
