Billed as “34 Songs That Changed The World”, plus two new ones (‘Celebration’ and ‘Revolver’, a collaboration with Lil’ Wayne), the tracklist for Madonna’s latest hits collection Celebration – her swansong for career-spanning label Warner Bros. – has finally been confirmed after months of speculation. Each of the album’s two audio discs weighs in at a hefty 18 songs with any notion of chronological order thrown out the window, though both discs end with something fresh. Every one of her 11 studio albums is represented and everything recorded prior to 1998 has been specially remastered for the release. Most singles that didn’t make the CDs will be represented on the accompanying DVD containing an impressive 47 videos, including 27 never before been released on DVD. Of course, with any such collection there are bound to be complaints and personal favourites omitted. Wears The Trousers was jonesing for ‘American Life’ – perhaps Madonna’s most interesting attempt at satirising the American dream, and (in its original edit) certainly her most controversial video since ‘Like A Prayer’ – but it’s really the album’s most glaring omission.

Celebration is released on September 28th in single-, double- and triple-disc formats.

This isn’t official. It just appeared on fansite ‘MadonnaTribe’ initially and is now doing the rounds the same as the previous ones did. It’s missing ‘You Must Love Me’ which is clearly visible in the artwork on her website and also some of the songs are supposed to be in the album version, but they are nearly or over 6 minutes long which would mean that despite there only being 18 tracks on each side there wouldn’t be enough room to fit it all on. We still have a wait on our hands! It is a nice selection though…
