Patrick Leonard Launches Kickstarter for New Album of Madonna Songs

Mark Doctrow

Earlier this year, Slant exclusively revealed that veteran songwriter/producer Patrick Leonard is recording his first album in over 20 years—a collection of reimagined versions of songs he wrote with Madonna in the 1980s and ’90s as well as a brand new song composed by Leonard. Titled Bring the Circus Home, the album will feature many of the original musicians who performed on some of the queen of pop’s iconic hits, including guitarist Bruce Gaitsch and bassist Guy Pratt.

Today Leonard launched a Kickstarter campaign with a fundraising goal $120,000 to complete the album. Backers will receive exclusive rewards including limited edition vinyl copies of Bring the Circus Home and a songwriting session with Leonard himself. Fans will also have a chance to vote for which songs make it onto the final album.
