ALBUM THROWBACK: MADONNA | BEDTIME STORIES + NEW REMIX EP FOR BEDTIME STORY (1994)
Madonna's R&B infused pop album, "Bedtime Stories," was released 26 years ago on October 25, 1994. It explores lyrical themes of love, sorrow, and romance but with a toned-down, less sexual approach. On March 19, 2021, a new digital remix EP for Madonna's single "Bedtime Story" was loaded to digital platforms. The digital single was loaded with 15 remixes, including some promo-only cuts never before available commercially.
From the neo-R&B flavourings of the intro track, “Survival,” to the sultry, stripped-down vocals of the finale, “Take A Bow” produced by Babyface, Bedtime Stories served up varied styles, all ultimately leading up to her musical transformation on "Evita" and "Ray of Light." After several attempts. Madonna had finally made an album meant to be experienced in its entirety. The album saw Madonna’s artistic vision at its most confident and vibrant.
