EARLIER // JULY 20:
Madonna's Rebel Heart era has one more surprise in store for fans.
Music is getting a much-needed resurgence this year thanks to artists like Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake and many more pop veterans eyeing a piece of the pie, but it's hardly satisfying knowing the Queen of Pop has no public plans to release new music with her peers.
While Madonna calculates her next move, fans will get a chance to relive the magic from her Rebel Heart Tour once more when the "Ghosttown" singer releases a DVD of professionally shot footage filmed during her run in Australia.
Madonna fansite Madonnarama claims Australian production studio York Studios uploaded an 18-second video on their Vimeo account last week that included professionally shot Rebel Heart Tour footage, but soon after pulled it.
They also report a new Rebel Heart music video is “coming soon,” which fans suspect will be a song filmed on tour.
