It’s not been a very happy Christmas for Madonna, with the news that yet more tracks from her upcoming album Rebel Heart have been leaked online.

The 56 year old star had been hit with a security breach just over a week ago when a dozen songs from her thirteenth studio album, about which she hadn’t even given any details at the time, were leaked. After some outbursts and emotional pleas on Instagram, by the end of the week she had decided to release six tracks as a counter-measure.

Madonna has had tracks from her new album 'Rebel Heart' leaked for the second time in a fortnight.

In a recent interview with Billboard, she was quizzed about the first leak, to which she responded: “We don't put things up on servers anymore. Everything we work on, if we work on computers, we're not on WiFi, we're not on the Internet, we don't work in a way where anybody can access the information. Hard drives of music are hand-carried to people. We don't leave music laying around.”

But it appears that system’s failure has not been corrected. Among the new songs doing the rounds is a collaboration with current hot superstar Pharrell Williams, entitled ‘Back That Up (Do It)’. Other tracks are called ‘Veni Vidi Vici’, ‘Beautiful Scars’, ‘Freedom’, ‘God Is Love’, ‘Hold Tight’, ‘Best Night’, ‘Inside Out’, ‘Tragic Girl’, ‘Nothing Lasts Forever’, ‘Holy Water’, ‘Graffiti Heart’ and ‘Body Shop’.

It means that nearly thirty songs are now floating around the internet. While pre-release leaks have been a major problem for recording artists for nearly two decades, for it to happen twice to an artist of Madonna’s prestige is quite unprecedented.

Along with the iTunes bonus release last week, Madonna’s label Interscope decided to put forward the release of Rebel Heart to February from its original date of March. The latest leak may now prompt them to push the official release ahead even further.
