Madonna's Got A Brand New Bag – And Britney's In It

Madonna may have teamed up with Britney Spears recently to boost Britney’s latest single, but she’s making sure her own album doesn’t get neglected in the process – so she’s revisiting American Life on an upcoming EP.

Remixed and Revisited, due November 25, will include seven songs, including one previously unreleased track, “Your Honesty,” a holdover from the Bedtime Storiesrecording sessions, co-written and co-produced by Dallas Austin.

Madonna’s recent collaboration with Spears notwithstanding, the EP also features their live performance of the “Like a Virgin/Hollywood” medley with Christina Aguilera and Missy Elliott at this year’s Video Music Awards. Elliott returns for the full mix of music heard in their Gap commercial, “Into the Hollywood Groove,” which melds Madonna’s “Hollywood” single with a re-recorded version of 1985’s “Into the Groove.”

The remaining tracks are rock and retro remixes from American Life, including the title track and “Love Profusion” (currently heard in Luc Besson-directed Estée Lauder spots for their fragrance Beyond Paradise), both remixed by Headcleanr, and new single “Nothing Fails,” revamped by Jason Nevins. “Love Profusion” and “Nothing Fails” will also be available on a double-A side CD maxi with bonus mixes of “Nobody Knows Me,” revamped on the EP by new wave revivalist Mount Sims.

Though “Nothing Fails” will be serviced to radio next week, Madonna plans to give the video treatment first to “Love Profusion.” The clip for that track, to be shot next week, will be directed by Besson, according to her spokesperson.
