In Every Nation

Madonna’s Celebration is coming.

That’s the title of the Queen of Pop’s upcoming third greatest hits compilation, a double-CD set featuring many of her most successful single and new tracks produced by DJ Paul Oakenfold, such as “Celebration,” f.k.a. “Celebrate,” the remix of which I’ve heard and quite like.

The songs on Celebration have all been remastered and selected by Madonna and her fans. They cover the expanse of the Material Girl’s extraordinary career of hits including “Everybody,” “Express Yourself,” “Vogue,” and “4 Minutes.”

A DVD of M’s best videos, including a few never-before-available-on-DVD ones, will be released simultaneously.

“Celebration” will be released on Aug. 3. A video for the single, featuring M fans, was just shot in Milan and Barcelona. It was directed by longtime M collaborator Jonas Åkerlund (“Ray of Light”), and will be included on the DVD.

Celebration’s pretty-cool cover was created by street pop artist Mr. Brainwash, best known on the scene for “throwing modern cultural icons into a blender and turning it up to eleven.”
