Madonna is set to take a new rap/rock direction on her next album.
The 'Celebration' singer is working with both rap producer A-Trak and rock producer Brendan O'Brien - who has previously worked with Pearl Jam - and attempting to merge the two genres on the follow up to her hip-hop influenced 2008 LP, 'Hard Candy'.
A-Trak, real name Alain Macklovitch, told the Daily Star newspaper: "It's my production, turned into song structure - halfway between rap and electronic and whatever else I listen to."
Madonna, 51, is said to be set on making a track to match the success of Run DMC's groundbreaking 80s hit 'Walk This Way', which defined the rap/rock genre - and went on to spawn acts such as Korn, Limp Bizkit and Kid Rock in the 90s.
Madonna has a long history of working with hip-hop producers, including Pharrell Williams and Timbaland on 'Hard Candy', but she is also keen to play up a more guitar-heavy sound after spending time mastering the instrument and insiders say she's working on perfecting a balance between the two.
The resulting album could be released this year.

MADONNA: ROCK AND HIP-HOP ON NEXT ALBUM
6th January 2010
MADONNA is going old skool on her next album to try and blur the lines between rock and hip-hop.
That’s according to the Material Girl’s latest young hot collaborator, DJ A-Trak, who is readying ideas for her follow-up to Hard Candy, provisionally due later this year.
The new recordings will also be overseen by rock stalwart and Pearl Jam producer Brendan O’Brien, 49, as Madge attempts to do to the terrible Teenies what Run DMC and their Adidas did to the Eighties with their rap version of Aerosmith’s Walk This Way.
Eclectic music lover A-Trak, aka Alain Macklovitch, 27, revealed: “It’s my production, turned into song structure – halfway between rap and electronic and whatever else I listen to.”
Madonna, 51, has been a longtime hip-hop fan, infiltrating more urban sounds with the help of Timbaland, 38, and Pharrell Williams, 36, on her last album.
But having also mastered the electric guitar, she’s now keen to merge more classic rock elements.
Originally from Montreal, A-Trak has been winning turntable awards since he was 15 and recently finished a four-year stint as warm-up DJ for Kanye West, 32.
