SPANISH police have arrested and charged a man on suspicion of illegally leaking an early version of a new Madonna song online.
A demo version of the track Give Me All Your Love surfaced on the internet last month, prompting the pop superstar to appeal to fans to help track down the person responsible for the unauthorised release.
The hunt for the culprit led Madonna’s legal representatives to Europe, and this week police arrested the suspect in the city of Zaragoza in northern Spain.
Police have only released the initials of the 31-year-old male as J.M.R. and they claim he is a big fan of the Material Girl and did not seek to profit from the release.
He was charged with leaking the unpublished song and subsequently released.
The finished version of Give Me All Your Love is due to feature rappers Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. and will be included on Madonna’s 12th studio album, which will be released in late March with the first single out next month.
