Holy modern house music twist! It’s safe to say that we didn’t see this official release coming. Pairing Madonna’s instantly recognisable (and dare we say iconic?) pitched-down “Sorry” vocal with an enthralling, slow-burning house production from BLOND:ISH, this surprise club release has just been released through Insomniac Records. “This collaboration came to life so naturally. We soon started playing “Sorry” at our shows and the response was overwhelming,” says BLOND:ISH of the collaboration, which has been fully endorsed by the original queen of pop. The original “Sorry” was released back in 2005 as part of the acclaimed LP “Confessions On A Dancefloor” – Madonna’s tenth – which was in itself produced by Stuart Price, AKA Jacques Lu Cont. This new 2023 version features fellow producers Eran Hersh and Darmon.

In other news from BLOND:ISH, the producer in question will also be featured in a new Bose commercial alongside fellow female artists H.E.R., Canadian producer WondaGurl and Pink Pantheress and all these musicians have been picked to help drive a new narrative around women in music, kicking things off around Women’s History Month. Women currently make up less than 4% of producers in the music industry, so it’s an important conversation to be having.

About the original track: “Sorry” was released in 2005 on Madonna’s 10th album “Confessions on a Dancefloor”. Madonna co-wrote and produced the song with Stuart Price. “Sorry” was one of the first songs developed for the album and is a dance-pop and disco track that encourages personal empowerment and self-sufficiency. To promote the single, remixes were created by Pet Shop Boys, Green Velvet, and Paul Oakenfold.

Upon its release, “Sorry” was well-received by music critics who praised its catchy melody and compared it to Madonna’s earlier dance songs. The song achieved commercial success in several countries, including Italy, Spain, Romania, and the United Kingdom, where it became Madonna’s twelfth number one single. However, in the United States, the song only reached number 58 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart due to underplay on radio. Nevertheless, it reached the top of the dance charts.
