Miles Away review

Madonna: ‘Miles Away’
Released on Monday, November 24 2008

By David Balls 

After scoring a number one album, two top ten singles and heading up a massive world tour this year, it’s been a rough couple of months for the Queen of Pop. With so much media attention focused on her divorce from Guy Ritchie, it’s tempting to ask why she’s releasing ‘Miles Away’ as her latest single – after all, it’s a song inspired by the difficulties of maintaining a long distance relationship.

Based around a few strummed guitar chords, ‘Miles Away’ is a welcome respite from Madonna’s recent floorfillers, with her vocal shining through as she sings: “We’re always at our best when we’re miles away”. It’s not often these days that she can pull off human emotion so convincingly. Though this bares more than a passing resemblance to dodgy Victoria Beckham album track ‘Midnight Fantasy’, it still manages to be one of the best cuts from Madge’s Hard Candy album. It’s a shame, therefore, that with no video and little promotion it’s likely to end up miles away from the top of the charts.
