A couple of months ago, my pal Sean, who is a giant Madonna fan, shared several unreleased Madonna tracks with me that I had never even heard of, and this is my favorite of them all. Across the Sky was recorded for the Hard Candy album and is a collaboration with Timbaland, Danja and Justin Timberlake, who also sings background on the chorus.
The song features rhythmic guitars and a smooth, relaxing sound. It reminds me of something from the Ray of Light album, actually. I've no idea why it was scrapped because it's definitely worthy of release. Check it out:
